Former The Apprentice candidate Liz Locke tips Susan Ma and Zoe Beresford to succeed in 2011 series

Zoe Beresford

Former Apprentice candidate Liz Locke has given her views on this year's batch of wannabe business candidates. Liz was bizarrely booted out of last year's show in favour of Stuart Baggs, a decision Lord Sugar later admitted to getting wrong after the interview stages of the competition.


Picking over the 16 hopefuls for this year's show, Liz told News Of The World that Susan Ma was one to watch out for. "This year's youngest candidate because she looks to have a strong combination of brains, business acumen and the ability to work well with people," Liz said.

The 25-year-old also tipped Zoe Beresford to do well on the show, saying: "Zoe seems like a no-nonsense character. I think she'll have the confidence to stand up for herself and present her ideas well.

"One of the main qualities needed in the process is stamina and work ethic and as a farmer's daughter I'm sure she'll have both."

However Natasha Scribbins didn't seem to impress Liz who said: "She may turn out to be the female version of Baggs the brand, claiming to be an expert manipulator knowing how to identify and push peoples buttons!

"She looks feisty and determined, I don't think I'd want to get on the wrong side of her."

The Apprentice 2011 airs tomorrow night at 9PM on BBC One.
