Tomorrow night sees Leah Totton and Luisa Zissman battle it out on the final of BBC’s Apprentice for a £250,000 business investment from Lord Sugar.

For those who have been watching the programme, the two women have battled the series to become the final two contestants, showcasing their entrepreneurial skills and outwitting many of their male contestants in the run-up to the final of the competition.  

Both women’s business plans have come under scrutiny from the Apprentice team and tomorrow will follow them in their final race to see who will be championed the 2013 winner of the TV series. 

Leah Totton, a 24 year old Doctor who graduated from the University of East Anglia in 2011 as a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, originally from County Derry in Northern Ireland is currently being tipped as the favourite to win the competition after Neil Clough, Francesca Macduff-Varley and Jordan Poulton, were fired by Lord Sugar from the shows penultimate episode last week. 

While her business model has come under fire from the team, Leah has full confidence in making her skin rejuvenation business a success. The former Doctor and model has shown increased confidence in her self-admitted lack of business skills as the programme has developed and recent outspoken clashes with cupcake businesswoman Luisa Zissman have swayed viewer’s opinions of her ability to lead a successful business.

On last week’s episode Lord Sugar praised Leah for having the ‘unusual quality’ of being both a Doctor and a skilled businesswoman. 

Luisa Zissman has also impressed the Apprentice team for her branded baking ingredients website business plan but Lord Sugar recently said of the 25 year old: “There is a growing market for this. My worry is you.” 

Mr Ashok Songra, Director and one of the founders of The 3fivetwo Group, is a practising Consultant Facial Surgeon and has first-hand experience of building a business from the ground up. Mr Songra believes, “For a business to succeed you need a good idea, a real passion and understanding of what you want to do. It’s really important to have the right people on your team as they help take the business forward.” 

The 3fivetwo Group, which is now the leading private healthcare provider in Northern Ireland, consists of 3fivetwo Healthcare, Kingsbridge Private Hospital, 3fivetwo Training Academy, Origin Fertility Care, Cosmetech, H3 Health Insurance and Dental Excellence. 

Mr Songra continued, “3fivetwo started as a small business based on a very simple principle to provide an exceptional healthcare service for our patients. This is still at the heart of all our services today and is something we feel really strongly about. No matter what size of a business you have, I think it’s extremely important to have clear core values. I wish Leah good luck in her business plan and if she wins the final of the competition she will have a great head start in creating a successful business with Lord Sugar’s help.” 

Leah who recently said of herself: "I'm very hard-working and feel I can bring youth, vibrancy, enthusiasm and a touch of class to any business that I'm part of" hopes to have success in the final of the episode which airs on Wednesday 17 July at 8pm on BBC One. 

Good luck Leah from all at The 3fivetwo Group!
