Amstrad tycoon sets up an all-female final

Kate Walsh and Yasmina Siadatan will battle it out to be the next Apprentice.

Sir Alan Sugar, 62, fired three contestants on last night’s semi-final show.  

James McQuillan, 32, Debra Barr, 23, and Lorraine Tighe, 36, got the boot after being interviewed by the tycoon’s advisors.

‘I’m absolutely thrilled to be in the final and I just hope I can go all the way,’ says Kate, 27.

Yasmina, 27, is tipped as the favourite to win the show.

‘I feel honoured to have come this far and there is no way I’m going to let it slip away now,’ she says.

The Apprentice final airs on BBC1 on Sunday 7 June at 9pm.
