How old is Anthony and what’s his background?

Anthony is 39, and was born on December 13, 1982, in Melbourne, Australia.

At a young age, Anthony entered various talent contests and also trained at the Johnny Young, Young Time Talent School.

In 1995, he had a small role in the comedy series Funky Town, a satirical show about 1970s police dramas.

On March 27, 2007, he released a statement saying he was gay: “I have no issue with my sexuality now, but it’s taken time to become confident with who I am and happy with who I am.

“I’m comfortable enough to come clean now. It’s a weight off my shoulders.”

How did Anthony get famous?

Anthony rose to fame by finishing as the runner-up in the 2004 season of Australian Idol.

His debut single, a cover of Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli’s The Prayer, went straight to number one on the ARIA Singles Chart and held that spot for five weeks.

He has since gone on to release six albums including a Christmas album in 2013.

Anthony’s music has consistently done well in Australia with all but one of his songs debuting in the top 20 of the ARIA Music Chart.

Since Australian Idol, Anthony has appeared on various other TV shows.

He competed in the second season of It Takes Two, a musical competition programme where celebrities pair up with professional singers.

Anthony was paired with radio DJ Jo Stanley and the duo finished in second place.

He also appeared on the second season of I’m A Celeb Australia, finishing in fourth.

Anthony was “fired” after the fourth task on The Celebrity Apprentice Australia 2021 - but his famous husband Tim Campbell has never appeared on the show, despite his namesake winning the first edition of the competition in the UK.

However the singing couple do tour together.

Do Anthony and Tim have kids?

Anthony has been in a relationship with Aussie actor and singer Tim Campbell since 2008.

Tim is most well known for playing Dan Baker in the Australian soap Home And Away from 2004 to 2008.

He also starred as Tom in House Husbands and Mr Doyle in Dead Gorgeous.

He competed in the 2007 season of Australian Dancing With The Stars, coming in third place with partner Natalie Lowe.

After six years together, the Tim and Anthony announced their engagement in August 2014.

They got married on November 17, 2014, in New Zealand.

In November 2021 on their seventh anniversary, Tim posted on Instagram: “Feeling very itchy today, anyone recommend a strong ointment? 7 years married. 14 years together. Happy anniversary @anthonycallea , you are VERY lucky!”

The pair don’t have any children together.

Tim began: “It was more surreal, a surreal experience of being in the boardroom next to Lord Sugar and Lady Brady, of course, accessing the candidates who are going to be the right one for Lord Sugar’s investment. “Because you have to remember, unlike many other business shows, this is real money, it’s not scripted, Lord Sugar is investing millions in businesses. “Most importantly, it’s transformed many of their lives, who for me it was completely revolutionary in terms of the things I’ve gone on to do. “None of that would ever have happened without the catalyst transformation from The Apprentice!”

When is The Apprentice 2022 on TV and how can I watch it?

Sixteen new candidates will be entering The Apprentice, but only one candidate will be crowned the winner.

The winner of the series will receive a £250,000 business injection price and the partnership of Lord Sugar himself.

KEY QUESTIONS: What did Campbell think of Boyle’s performance in third start?


What stuck out about the lack of run defense against the Seahawks?

Seattle finished with 265 total rushing yards, the most rushing yards the Lions have allowed all season.

“It wasn’t effort,” Campbell said. “There’s a few things. No. 1, I thought they did a really good job … they had a really good game plan and really exploited our youth.”

Seattle did some things that forced Detroit’s defense to be very disciplined, and that’s sometimes a hard ask for a defense playing with so many young players as the Lions are on that side of the ball right now.

Seattle had some turbo motion looks with both run and pass options off them. Seattle got a couple gash runs early on and built some nice options off those to stress the eye discipline of Detroit’s young defenders.

“Man, when you go through there, and you start watching, I just felt like there were a lot of things where we got exposed on,” Campbell said. “Some of it is like the first time we’ve seen it with particularly some of our young guys.”

How important is it for the young defenders to learn quickly from Sunday?

The NFL is a copycat league, and Campbell said Green Bay will look at the Seattle tape and likely implement some things Seattle did well into their plan. All the opponents next year will look at the Seattle tape. Campbell expects to see some similar looks until they prove they can clean it up, fix the errors and be more disciplined.

Where does Campbell think he’s grown the most throughout the course of the year as a head coach?

He pointed to some of the organizational things like daily schedule and practice schedules. He also thinks his in-game management has grown a lot throughout the course of the year with experience. He says he’s also gotten much more comfortable calling plays, while still managing the game as head coach. He thought four or five weeks ago that was a big learning curve and he’s much more comfortable there.

The Apprentice is back after two very long years and Lord Sugar is once again scouring the country for his newest business partner.

However, fans of the award-winning BBC reality show will be heartbroken to discover that Claude Littner - Lord Sugar’s aide, business colleague and dear friend - will not be returning for the upcoming series.

Following a cycling accident last April, the 72-year-old American-born British business executive injured his right leg to such an extent that medics were forced to consider amputation.

Now, being unable to assist Sugar, Claude will be replaced by Tim Campbell, the first winner.

Alongside Karren Brady, Campbell will observe the two teams of 16 hungry entrepreneurs as they battle it out to be Lord Sugar’s impressive investment and become his corporate partner.

But what else do we know about the business magnate’s newest aide?

Following his victory on the show’s first series in 2005, Campbell joined Sugar’s electronics company Amstrad on a £100,000 a year salary, soon becoming the Project Director of the company’s Health & Beauty division.

A year later, after filming the hour-long documentary, The Apprentice: Tim in the Firing Line, about his first year in business with Lord Sugar, Campbell also held a series of one-to-one advice sessions for budding entrepreneurs organised by the British Library’s Business & Intellectual Property Centre.

At the end of his 12-month Amstrad contract in 2007, during which he was described as a “great asset” by the legendary business executive, Campbell joined with diplomat Richard Morris to form the charity Bright Ideas Trust, which was aimed at helping disadvantaged build their own businesses.

The same year, he became a Social Enterprise Ambassador as part of the British Government initiative that aimed to apply modern business solutions to social and environmental problems.

For this, he was later awarded an MBE for Services to Enterprise Culture.

Since February 2012, the Apprentice star has been a member of boutique London property investment and development agency, Estate Office Property Consultants, and also co-founded bespoke digital marketing company, Marketing Runners Ltd.

Now, with a wealth of business experience, an Honour and a hefty bank balance under his belt, Tim Campbell is ready put the fresh batch of candidates through their paces to find the right businessman/woman to follow in his footsteps.

He referred to his return to the infamous boardroom as a “full circle” experience.

“It was a great regret when we heard about Claude, who is such a massive part of the franchise,” Campbell added. “We’re really pleased that he’s doing well and he’s on the road to recovery.

“Having been on the other side of the table, I definitely understand what they are all going through.

“It’s a great honour to be alongside Baroness Karren Brady in assessing these candidates and seeing how they all get on.”

The Apprentice starts on BBC One tomorrow at 9:00pm.
