Lorraine Kelly takes savage swipe at The Apprentice stars ahead of BBC final
Lorraine Kelly didn't hold back as she offered her verdict on the stars of the latest series of The Apprentice.
Fans of the BBC series will finally find out the name of Lord Alan Sugar's next business partner tonight (March 24).
Harpreet Kaur and Kathryn Burn will go head-to-head to be crowned the winner.
As Lorraine showed a teaser clip from the grand finale of faxed candidates trying to pick a logo, Lorraine giggled as she said: "Aren't they hopeless.
"The old candidates return to help out the two finalists."
Kathryn and Harpeet will be joined by former contestants during Thursday's finale as they bring their businesses to life.
Harpreet, 30, runs a successful coffee and cakes business with a six-figure annual turnover.
Kathryn, 29, owns an online pyjama store, My Everyday Pyjamas, and is launching another website, My Christmas Pyjamas, soon.
Both entrepreneurs plan to use the prize money to grow their current businesses.
For the first six seasons of the show, winners were awarded a £100,000 a year job working for Lord Sugar.
In 2011, the prize changed to a £250,000 investment into their business and a 50/50 partnership with Lord Sugar.
This is the prize which Harpreet and Kathryn are competing for, and although Lord Sugar’s aides, West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady and season one winner Tim Campbell, will advise the business magnate, the winner will ultimately be his own decision.
The Apprentice candidate Amy Anzel has reportedly been banned from the final and the You’re Hired spin-off show after complaining about Lord Alan Sugar's tweet about her.
Amy was eliminated from The Apprentice in week six after failing to impress when the teams were tasked with organising the perfect adventure-filled experience for holidaymakers.
After her exit from the BBC hit show Lord Sugar Tweeted: “Amy didn’t sell she was so slow. Slower than broadband Wi-Fi in Cornwall.”
A pal close to Amy told The Sun that: “She (Amy) couldn’t get her head around her firing.
“It came in week six because she’d not taken on the project manager role — but they’d failed to show she had put herself up for it in week two. She believed it was just an excuse to get rid of her.
"When Lord Sugar posted his tweets, she thought they were nasty, hurtful and insulting and told them so in an email.”
They continued: “She knew the final taping was happening last Wednesday but they ignored her phone calls and emails again."
