There was a shock twist in The Apprentice final last night
It's a first for the show.
Last night saw the end to another series of The Apprentice and, in the finale, Lord Sugar changed things up and made a decision that no one saw coming.
He was deciding between the two remaining contestants, James White and Sarah Lynn, and who he should go into business with. Then, for the first time in the history of the show, he chose to hire both of them.

When delivering the news, Lord Sugar said:
"James, crowded market, but I’ve had some experience with a similar person of a similar age who is making a lot, a lot of money.
"Sarah, sweets. I don’t have any experience of your business, ok. I’m going to say that I’m a gambler and I’ve always been a gambler in business.
"This particular year, I’m going to double my investment… I’m going to start a business with both of you!"
While it shocked a lot of people, others were more annoyed by the outcome.
