Leah Totton was last night named as the winner of The Apprentice.
Leah won an investment worth £250,000 from Lord Sugar, and beat off stiff competition from Luisa Zissman in the show’s finale.
Lord Sugar preferred Leah’s cosmetic business clinic over Luisa’s wholesale bakery idea.
Of his choice in business partner, Lord Sugar said: Leah’s a very determined young woman, and it’s a very interesting industry, and she’s the most interesting candidate, and she has the most interesting business proposition,”
Leah said: “To have Lord Sugar show this faith in me is absolutely unbelievable, it’s amazing. I had much less experience than the other candidates in business coming in to the process and I really can’t believe that I have got this far and that I’ve actually won it! I can’t believe it.
“I’m really going to do everything that I can to prove that he has made the right decision and I won’t let him down.”
