The Apprentice 2016 winner 'accidentally revealed by Lord Sugar'

The Apprentice 2016 spoilers


The Apprentice 2016 winner has supposedly been leaked - by Lord Sugar himself.

The show boss is said to have accidentally given away this year's Apprentice winner on Twitter, weeks before the final.

According to the Daily Mail newspaper, Lord Sugar gave the game away when he followed the candidate in question.

"The spoiler was spotted by fans of the show who noticed that the tycoon had started to follow the Twitter feed of just one of the contestants on this series," the tabloid reports. "And of all the business hopefuls who pass through his TV boardroom, Lord Sugar only ever follows the winner. "

According to the tabloid, Lord Sugar has since rectified his mistake after being made aware of the error, meaning those who didn't see it (including us!) can only speculate about who it might have been.

Or just wait until the final this month when it will be confirmed...

Currently just six candidates remain in the chase for Lord Sugar's £250,000 business investment on The Apprentice 2016. They are Alana Spencer, Courtney Wood, Frances Bishop, Grainne McCoy, Jessica Cunningham and Trishna Thakrar.

Last week saw the second double firing of the series as Lord Sugar continued to whittle down the business wannabes remaining.

This weekend the final six will go head to head in a boozy task where they must create a new brand of gin, designing and branding their spirit before pitching it to retailers.

The Apprentice 2016 airs Thursday nights on BBC One at 9PM.
