Apprentice runner up Kate Walsh says her new job as host of Five’s Live from Studio Five is a ‘dream come true’.

Brummie Kate, who lost out to Yasmina Siadatan on the BBC reality show, described The Apprentice as ‘one of the best experiences I’ve ever had’ that led to ‘exciting things’.

She told whatsontv.co.uk: “Presenting was always the bit of my job that I enjoyed the most so to be paid for presenting and chatting, it’s like a dream come true really.”

Kate added that her new role on the nightly magazine show ‘cushions the blow’ of not winning The Apprentice.
