Cleaning entrepreneur Khadija Kalifa, from Stamford, scrapes through after her team lose on BBC's The Apprentice

More news, no ads


Stamford's Khadija Kalifa, armed with a spray gun, was on the losing team on tonight's The Apprentice but she makes it through to week five.

In last week's Mercury column, she warned that her "mum tum feels a bit out of place" as tonight's episode sees the remaining contestants at a body building expo.

In the episode, which aired last Wednesday, Khadija stayed pretty quiet but was still on the winning team after creating and selling gourmet doughnuts.

Our live updates from tonight's show are below

9:55pm: Alex is fired and he leaves without saying goodbye to his fellow competitors. There are 12 candidates left. Next week, the competitors are tasked with designing women's footwear.

9:50pm: Sian says she "can't fault the sub-team's performance". Sabrina believes the loss is down to the sub-team making less sales of their spray tanning product than the other team's massage product, which made about £300 more. Sabrina is bringing back Alex and Sian into the boardroom. Khadija breathes a big sigh of relief as she returns to the house. That's a loss in week one, wins in weeks two and three and a loss in week four. Our girl makes it through to week five.

9.45pm: The results are in and there's £200 difference in it. Team Typhoon has lost and they're in the cafe debating what went wrong while Team Collaborative's prize is boxing with David Hay.

9.40pm: The body building expo is finished and the teams are going back to face Lord Sugar in the boardroom, where it's "survival of the fittest".

9.30pm: Khadija is moved onto the team selling the gym equipment as she's "strong on sales". She responds with: "Let's do this!"

9:25pm: Day two - now the product ranges have been procured, the teams are exhibiting at the expo hoping to make the most sales. Khadija is armed with her spray gun.

9:20pm: Khadija practices spray tanning while the sub-team selects a product. Both teams fight it out to sell the gym equipment and Team Typhoon win!

9:15pm: Khadija suggests the service offered should be spray tanning, spraying individual body parts to increase sales.

9:10pm: Week four - The teams gather at the Royal Albert Hall to hear that their task is to sell at one of the world's largest body building expo's in Birmingham, selecting a product and a service from a range to sell.
