As well as winning a £250,000 business investment from Lord Sugar on The Apprentice, 31-year-old Tom Pellereau also met and eventually proposed to his 'geeky girlfriend' Sarah Fawcus. Speaking to The Sun, Tom said she thinks his win on the show is "insane"!

Tom proposed to Sarah just weeks before learning Lord Sugar had chosen him as his new business part. Tom said: "We are both big geeks and the wedding is going to be incredible fun."

He added: "I am very fortunate that I met Sarah before all of this started. She is an engineer as well so she is very well grounded.

"As soon as I heard I had won I spoke to her - she thinks it is all mad and insane."

Speaking about his life before the show started, Tom previously said: "I'd just had one of the worst times of my life. I'd broken up with my girlfriend and a business I'd helped to found had a new investor who was trying to kick me out.

"So I was sitting in my flat thinking: 'If I don't apply for The Apprentice now, when will I ever?' I was getting close to rethinking my life."
