The four finalists line up one last time as they prepare to go head-to-head this weekend to become Lord Sugar's business partner in The Apprentice.

The quartet - Susan Ma, Helen Milligan, "Jedi" Jim Eastwood and Tom Pellereau - are aiming to triumph in Sunday's final of the BBC1 show.

But to get the prized role as the business guru's new ally, they must get through the job interview from hell as they are grilled by the Amstrad boss's pals and their bright ideas are torn to shreds.

Susan, Helen, Jim and Tom met up at the London Studios on the South Bank, overlooking the River Thames, ahead of the high-stakes finale to the series.

The winner is to receive £250,000-worth of Lord Sugar's investment and backing to start or expand their own business.

The group will be kept on their toes during the final - screened on Sunday at 9pm - as no-nonsense interviewers Claude Littner, Mike Soutar, Matthew Riley and Margaret Mountford - formerly Lord Sugar's sidekick on the show - join the selection process to tear their business proposals apart.

Lord Sugar said: "Once my trusted colleagues get them under the microscope I have no doubt that flaws will be uncovered, and we will see who truly warrants my investment."
