Jim Eastwood "unstoppable" on The Apprentice suggests ex-candidate Katie Hopkins

Jim Eastwood

Former Apprentice candidate Katie Hopkins has suggested that current Apprentice candidate Jim Eastwood could be "unstoppable" now that he's won over Lord Sugar's aide Nick Hewer. The Irish salesman managed to charm Nick in this week's latest reinvestment task with his negotiation tactics.

Jim is currently one of the favourites to win the 2011 series of The Apprentice, despite getting on Lord Sugar's nerves on more than a few times in previous tasks.

This week however he impressed, with Nick remarking: "I'll say this much for Jim, he's not a shy boy. I've never seen such an abundance of baloney. He's good fun, people like him, and I quite like him now, for the first time."

Katie, who 'resigned' in series 3 of the show during the final week, wrote in her buzz magazine column this week: "Nick Hewer's change of heart towards Jim could make him unstoppable. Nick said he didn't know if Jim had kissed the Blarney Stone or swallowed it whole after his brilliant selling in the last task.

"Now Jim is a sales supremo, Shugs will be drawn to him like a moth to a flame. Plus, he has that rare Apprentice gift of a personality, which few of the others can claim."

The Apprentice continues this Wednesday at 9PM on BBC One.
