Apprentice runner up Helen Milligan already back at work (in Greggs!)

Helen Milligan

The Apprentice 2011 runner up Helen Milligan is already back to work - at Greggs. Far from serving iced buns and sausage rolls however, the 30-year-old has received a promotion after her appearance and is now in charge of more than 200 of the bakery's outlets.

Now "head of retail in the South East", Helen has ditched her plans to open a business and is instead in charge of 2,300 staff.

Helen told The Sun: "I am more suited to being an employee in the corporate world than an entrepreneur. I was very lucky that Greggs gave me time off to do The Apprentice.

"They are a really good company to work for."

Greggs finance director Richard Hutton meanwhile added: "Helen has done fantastically well since joining us three years ago. Her dream job was to be head of retail."
