The winner of The Apprentice 2015 has been revealed in tonight's final results.

This evening saw Lord Sugar pick his new business partner as Vana Koutsomitis lost to Joseph Valente.

For their final task, they had to launch their proposed businesses by creating a brand, billboard ad, promotional video and launch campaign before pitching them to Lord Sugar, Karren Brady, Claude Littner and industry experts.

As is tradition, the former candidates returned to help the finalists as they set out to create a company fit for Lord Sugar.

Vana's team was made up of Richard, Charleine, Ruth and Natalie while Joseph had Gary, Brett, Elle and Mergim on his team.

On launch day, the finalists stepped up to present their plans to 200 leading industry experts and Lord Sugar himself.

The boss had feedback from those in the audience before returning to the boardroom for the final result.

The final boardroom saw Lord Sugar delve deeper into the businesses further as Vana's finances came under particular scrutiny while Joseph had to explain how his plumbing business could grow beyond the small time.

Lord Sugar then sent the pair out before one last chat with Claude and Karren.

Welcoming Vana and Joseph back to the boardroom for the final time, Lord Sugar delivered his final decision: "Joseph, I think I see what I would get with you but the service industry is one which I've not had anything to do with but I know can be lucrative.

"Vana, you are a very clever lady, you've adapted well and you get it, and I live technology and I love technology. Old habits die hard.

"Technology has been my best friend for over 50 years but maybe it's time to make new friends and so, Joseph, you're going to be my business partner."

Joseph reacted: "Thank you, it means the world to me, I won't let you down."

Lord Sugar's search for his new business partner is over. The Apprentice will return next year on BBC One.
