The Apprentice 2016 winner REVEALED by Lord Sugar on Twitter?!

The Apprentice 2017 results spoilers Lord SUgar

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

The show boss is reportedly to have made a bit of a social media mishap.

Reports this week have claimed that Lord Sugar ended up accidentally giving away this year's Apprentice winner on Twitter, three weeks before the final.

Tonight is the latest task of the series ahead of interviews but some eagle eyed fans have supposedly figured out The Apprentice 2016 winner already.

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 reported at the weekend. "And of all the business hopefuls who pass through his TV boardroom, Lord Sugar only ever follows the winner. "

The newspaper says that 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/search Twitter constantly to figure out who it might have been.

Currently just six candidates remain in the hunt 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.

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.

At least one more candidate will be fired tonight before the final few go forward to the dreaded interview stage. The top two will face off in the final for Lord Sugar's investment.

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