Apprentice fans left furious as Lord Sugar ‘gives away winner’ in huge gaffe before final aired | The Sun

THE APPRENTICE fans were left fuming after spotting the moment that Lord Sugar "gave away the winner" before the final.

Lord Sugar, 75, hired her Marnie Swindells over fellow finalist Rochelle Anthony, 35, and will plough his £250,000 investment into her proposal for a chain of gyms.

But some eagle-eyed viewers were not surprised about the winner, after a teaser video from the final shared last week showed billionaire businessman pointing in Marnie's direction.

Many fans noticed that Lord Sugar had pointed to the left and said: "You're going to be my new business partner."

Viewers flocked to Twitter saying that the final had been ruined.

One wrote: "Marnie wins it? She's sat to the left of Lord Sugar and he points to the winner with his left hand."

Another posted: "Why show the finger at the end? It's clearly whoever is sat on the left."

While some fans thought Marnie had given the game away after she posted a photo of her boxing gym launch three weeks ago.

She will how get a huge investment in her chain of Bronx boxing gyms which she founded in Camberbell, south London.

The entrepreneur plans to attract finance workers to a new branch beside the Bank of England in the City of London.
