The bakery queen has become 'lifelong friends' with doctor Leah

Luisa Zissman has no plans to slag off her rival Leah Totton on The Apprentice final tonight.

While the 25-year-old is desperate for Lord Alan Sugar to crown her the winner of the BBC show, she’s become pals with blonde Leah, 24.

‘I’m never going to sit next to Leah in the boardroom and slate her. I’m not interested in that because we’re lifelong friends now,’ says Luisa.

‘I don’t need to show him how worthy I am by saying how crap she is because she’s not, she’s incredible.’

Retail entrepreneur Luisa wants to launch a new baking brand with Alan‘s £250,000 investment if she triumphs tonight, while doctor Leah is hoping to open a string of botox clinics.

Luisa definitely thinks she has what it takes to take home the prize.

‘I know that I have been called ruthless, aggressive and a bit of a bitch,’ says Luisa.

‘I am ruthless – but that’s the reason I am successful in business and you have to be ruthless to win.’
