Stella English: 'Apprentice has been incredible'
Stella English believes it is ''incredible'' she has got to the final of 'The Apprentice' and could work for Lord Alan Sugar
'The Apprentice' finalist Stella English has a "hunger" to work for Lord Alan Sugar.
The 30-year-old Head of Business Management - who is up against 24 year old Chris Bates in the final of the show - thinks it is "incredible" she has got down to the final two and believes it is proof "sheer determination" can help people achieve their dreams.
She said: "There have been many low times in my life when I have felt like giving up and it's incredible for to me to think that I am a finalist on the programme and could ultimately be Lord Sugar's Apprentice.
"It is a huge personal achievement of which I am extremely proud and testament to the fact that sheer determination, focus and self belief can break through all barriers. My hunger to win is stronger than ever. My motto in life is, and has always been, 'Never give up!' "
However Chris - who has been on the losing team of the BBC reality TV show six times compared to Stella's three - says it is "crucial" he wins the job with Lord Sugar.
He added: "It has always been about getting the job for me so to get this close now makes it even more so. It's really crucial for me to see it through to the end."
Lord Sugar also praised both contestants, saying they done "incredibly".
The business leader said: "It's impossible to call it. They have both done incredibly well but there can only be one winner. It is going to be the most difficult task yet."
His decision will be shown tonight (19.12.10) on BBC One at 10pm.
