HAMPSHIRE’S Apprentice hopeful Ricky Martin has been tipped to win the reality TV show after millions of viewers saw him reach the final last night.

The 26-year-old recruitment team manager and sometime wrestler from Stubbington will battle for the top prize with Tom Gearing, 23, the director of a fine wine investment company; business development manager Jade Nash, 29; and Nick Holzherr, 25, a technology entrepreneur.

Last night fruit seller Adam Corbally's dream of winning The Apprentice went pear-shaped after his team lost the luxury product task.

The market trader missed out on a place in the final after his high-end chocolates and jellies failed to sweeten Lord Sugar.

Corbally, from Glossop in Derbyshire, is now tipping Ricky to win.

“He’s the best candidate in the process. He’s clear and concise, he’s on the money, he’s a clever lad,” he said.

“He’s shown himself in every task and he’s proved himself in the boardroom time after time.”
