Fired Edna Agbarha tips Jim Eastwood and Helen Milligan to win The Apprentice 2011

Jim Eastwood

Latest victim of The Apprentice boardroom Edna Agbarha has tipped Jim Eastwood and Helen Milligan to win this year's show. Edna, who was given the axe by Lord Sugar for taking credit for other's work, told DigitalSpy she felt the pair were "strong contenders" to win the competition.

The winner of The Apprentice 2011 will receive a £250,000 cash injection into their own business, as well as Lord Sugar's decades of business experience and contacts.

Talking about who could win the show this year, Edna said: "I think that Jim and Helen are strong contenders. Helen is a personable person, so she's not likely to be taken into the boardroom. I think that's a key skill to actually winning."


And the business psychologist couldn't help herself from 'analysing' the working for the duo, explaining: "When I analyse the behaviours and interpret the behaviours of people who have successfully avoided the boardroom, it is the more personable individuals who don't get dragged into those discussions."

Edna added: "Jim I think is a good all-rounder. He's quite a charmer as well, to be able to avoid the boardroom like the plague."

Asked what she felt 'Jedi Jim's secret was, Edna responded: "I think Jim's a nice guy to be honest and he's also very competent as well. He's obviously been recognised for that."

Despite Edna's comments however it's currently Melody Hossaini who bookies have predicted will win the show, while Susan Ma is favourite for the chop next week.

The Apprentice 2011 continues next Wednesday at 9PM on BBC One.
