Apprentice 2011's Zoe Beresford reveals double cancer nightmare

Zoe Beresford

Fired Apprentice candidate Zoe Beresford revealed last night how she beat cancer twice before the age of 20. The 26-year-old told You're Fired host Dara O'Briain how she had battled cnancer in her throat and neck two times during her teenage years, leaving her education in ruins.

Zoe was fired by Lord Sugar on last night's latest Apprentice show after her team returned to the boardroom with no orders for their Bix Mix biscuit product.

Despite the knockback, Zoe was confident she'd get back on top after suffering a lot worse in the past. She said: "I had it in the neck and the lymphatic system, when I was 15 and 18, so that took care of school and university."

A friend told The Sun today: "She never mentioned her cancer to Lord Sugar because she didn't want it to define her."

Zoe however was quite on any possible relationship with fellow fired candidate Glenn Ward, after the pair were said to be in a 'secret relationship' on the show.

Meanwhile Helen Milligan set TWO new Apprentice records in yesterday's show as she led her team to victory with their 'Special Stars' product. It marked a record ninth win in a row for Helen, whose product was so good Asda wanted 800,000 units - smashing previous boardroom records, which Helen had already beaten last week!

Lord Sugar told Helen on the results: "That's unbelievable. I've never seen anything like that. That is the launch of a mega product."
