Stella English was named as the winner of a triple figure salary job opportunity in last night’s finale of The Apprentice.
The reality TV show, which lasted twelve weeks, saw sixteen candidates competing for the £100,000-a-year position in one of business entrepreneur Lord Alan Sugar’s multimillionaire companies.
English joined 23 year old Chris Bates for the final task, where they led teams made up of former contestants to create and market a new brand of alcoholic drink.
The two-hour special was watched by an average audience of 8.3 million people, with a peak audience of 10.3 million tuning in at the start of the finale.
The winner, a previous head of business management at a Japanese bank said “There were times that I felt very tired and it was much harder than I ever thought it would be.
“But in terms of quitting, there was absolutely no way.”
English is set to commence her job at Viglen, which provides IT services largely in education on the 4th of January. Lord sugar said that the position required “a very, very good organiser and someone who’s very, very switched on- she’s got the brain to do it”.
Sources have revealed that in reality, Lord Sugar, worth £730 million, employed both final candidates for a total of four months before making his final decision. Despite finishing as runner-up of the series, Bates is suggested to have been offered a respectable position with Lord Sugar at his Viglen company.
