Lord Sugar has revealed that he will be remaining in contact with Apprentice finalist Susan Ma.

Sugar said that he was intrigued by Ma's cosmetic company plans, which she revealed in the final, and claimed that there was a possibility she could be reunited with the show's winner Tom Pellereau.

Pellereau won the £250,000 investment from Sugar, which the pair are expected to use in a curved nail file business.

"Susan, do you know what, I always wanted to be in the cosmetics industry and Susan's definitely got something about her," he said.

"All I can say is, I would like to keep in close contact there, because there may be some synergy there between the nail file. There could be a deal to be done."

Jim in The Apprentice final
Sugar also offered to praise to finalist Jim Eastwood, describing him as a great salesman.

"When it comes to salesmanship and his way with people, Jim may want to tackle the Irish debt," he joked.

"He might be able to sort it. If anyone ever needs a sales person, he is the man."
