Who won The Apprentice 2017?
James White and Sarah Lynn made it all the way to the final – and in an unprecedented twist they were BOTH crowned winners, receiving £250,000 investment from Lord Sugar.
The duo impressed the business legend with their plans for IT recruitment and confectionery respectively, meaning he had to fork out half a million pounds in total.
