The Apprentice final: Lord Sugar hires Mark Wright

In tonight’s final of The Apprentice, Lord Sugar chose Mark Wright as his new business partner. He will go on to create a new internet marketing company Climb Online with the £250,000 of Lord Sugar’s investment.

Lord Sugar had informed both Bianca and Mark that their final task was to launch their businesses – creating a new range of hosiery and a new internet marketing company – by creating brands and unveiling their campaigns before an audience of business big wigs at the Bloomsbury Ballroom. Failed candidates such as Sarah, Daniel, Katy, James, Felipe, Sanjay and Solomon returned and were recruited to help the two finalists in their final task.

Mark chose Climb Online as the name of his internet business, while Bianca plumped for True Skin as the name of her unique coloured tights range.

In the end, it was heartbreak for South Londoner Bianca – Lord Sugar will not be getting into tights! Mark’s Climb Online internet marketing company is Lord Sugar’s new business project.
