Loved-up Apprentice Leah Totton's flying visit home

Apprentice star opens Women's Aid centre before taking beau sightseeing

Apprentice winner Leah Totton was all smiles during a romantic break here with new boyfriend Mark Wright at the weekend.

The glamorous couple spent the weekend exploring Leah's home city of Londonderry and the scenic Antrim coast, as well as posting loved-up snaps on social media.

The pair enjoyed romantic meals in Derry's Exchange Restaurant and the Ramore wine bar in Portrush.

London-based beauty expert Leah flew home to open a new Women's Aid facility in Derry. It provides accommodation for victims of sexual and domestic abuse, and incorporates a coffee shop and a women's history project.

The latter is of special interest to Leah, who has spoken out on women's issues in the past and takes a keen interest in Northern Ireland politics.

She is thought to have used the trip home to introduce fellow Apprentice winner Mark to her parents Trevor and Lorraine.

Over the weekend she posted a number of stunning scenic photographs of the Antrim coast on Twitter and Instagram. On Saturday she tweeted a picture of herself cuddled up with Mark in the Ramada Hotel Portrush and wrote: "Weekend in Northern Ireland #noplacelikehome".

Yesterday she tweeted: "Amazing meal in @RamorePortrush last night now exploring the Antrim coast."

She later uploaded a photograph of the coastline with the caption: "The most beautiful country in the world."

Australian entrepreneur Wright also appeared to be enjoying his romantic break. He uploaded a number of photographs of himself and Leah and gushed on Twitter: "Amazing weekend in #northernireland."

The couple were introduced to each other last year by Apprentice boss Lord Sugar, who recommended Wright (26) for the visual marketing of Dr Leah's beauty clinics after he won The Apprentice in 2015.

Dr Leah claimed the Apprentice crown in 2013 with a plan to launch a 'Botox empire' of cosmetic clinics.

Her win resulted in Lord Sugar parting with £250,000 to invest in the business.
