James and Sarah were the final contestants left standing but who became business partners with Lord Sugar?

As the 13th series of the popular show came to an end. Who managed to wow Lord Sugar enough to be hired?

Last week’s programme saw James White and Sarah Lynn beat off the competition to make it to the final.

Both contestants were given the task of pitching their business ideas to experts at London’s City Hall.

Previous contestants returned to help the finalists.

In the end however, Lord Alan Sugar hired both candidates, for the first time in the show’s history.

Both contestants were given £250,000 by Lord Sugar, taking his total investment this series to half a million pounds.

They were both crowned winners after the final episode of series 13 saw them present their business plans to more than 200 experts at London’s City Hall.

Lord Sugar said of the “historic moment”: “I couldn’t make a decision, it had to be both of them.

“They were two genuinely great experts in their field and I’m looking forward to going into business with them.”
