The Apprentice 2017 winner confirmed tonight

The Apprentice 2017 winner will be crowned in tonight’s final task as Sarah Lynn and James White go head to head.

There have been ten weeks of tasks and the interviews are now over after a triple firing that saw the final two candidates chosen.

Sarah and James are the only two left standing and tonight they face the FINAL where one of them will go on to win Lord Sugar’s £250,000 investment and become his new business partner.

This evening the pair must launch their businesses to win Lord Sugar’s backing in the final boardroom of the series.

As usual, the past candidates return to lend a helping hand as Sarah and James choose key colleagues to try and help them secure the £250,000 investment.

James wins a coin toss and gets first pick, choosing Charles, Joanna, Elizabeth and Anisa for his team while Sarah selects Michaela, Harrison, Andrew and Siobhan.

In a marathon three day task, the two finalists and their respective teams start by coming up with a brand name.

They must then have a sub team create an innovate digital billboard for their new business.

On Day 2, the Sarah and and James must make a TV advert and create a company fit for Lord Sugar. However Sarah makes a bold move and decides to change her brand name.

Sarah’s business is a confectionery company, with customisable postable gifts that can be ordered online and delivered through a postbox.

Meanwhile, James is pitching a recruitment service, which will focus on cyber security.

Once the brand names are eventually chosen and ads are edited, Sarah and James enter the spotlight to pitch their business plans.

The finalists must present their brands to 200 leading industry experts – and Lord Sugar himself – while battling the worst nerves of the series.
