James McCullagh bids for a sweet deal with Lord Sugar

A teenager who got the joint highest score in GCSE economics in Northern Ireland is in with a chance of winning £25,000 when he takes part in the Young Apprentice.

Loreto College, Coleraine, student James McCullagh (17) not only excels in economics, but came joint second in GCSE drama.

It would seem to be the perfect combination for competing in the junior version of Lord Sugar’s TV business competition.

James is now doing A-levels in biology, English language, economics and Spanish.

In the first episode of Young Apprentice, the boys and the girls are separated and told to make their own ice cream to sell on a hot summer day.

The series winner will have access to £25,000 to kickstart their own ventures.

Young Apprentice starts on BBC1 on Monday, October 24 at 9pm.
