A Harrogate businesswoman will try and persuade Lord Sugar that she should be the next winner of The Apprentice.

Among the contestants hoping to shine this year is Ruth Whiteley, 47, a sales training consultancy owner from Harrogate.

Ruth's background is in telephone sales, as well as local media.

Asked how she thinks she'll come across, she said: "Lord Sugar might think I’m a bit gushing, he might find me over-zealous, but...I think he'll think I'm great."
