Newry make-up artist Grainne McCoy has survived another episode of The Apprentice, after the show was hit with its second double firing in three weeks.

Art director Dillon St Paul and sales executive Sofiane Khelfa were the latest candidates axed after their team failed to impress in a virtual reality (VR) task.

The two sides went head-to-head to create a new VR game, before pitching it at the Comic Con exhibition in London.

The double exit leaves just one man left in the competition - business owner Courtney Wood.

Khelfa, who brought back St Paul and McCoy to the boardroom, said that he was "shocked" to have been sent packing by Lord Sugar.
