Derry doctor Leah Totton will this week find out if she’ll compete in the final of the BBC series The Apprentice.

The former Foyle College pupil, who now lives and works in London where she practices, has already seen off eleven other contestants to make it to the final five of the popular show.

Leah (24) trained in Harley Street and set up a company which specialises in skin rejuvenation alongside her work as an NHS doctor. This week she’ll be seen undertaking a series of gruelling interviews conducted by some of Lord Alan Sugar’s most trusted advisors. Among those to conduct interviews are Margaret Mountford, Claude Littner, Mike Soutar and Claudine Collins.

Looking ahead to the show on BBC One on Wednesday night, Leah, the youngest of the five remaining candidates, posted on Twitter:”In the final 5 of the apprentice ! So happy ! Interviews next week !! Eeeek!! xx”

The winner of ninth series of The Apprentice will be given the opportunity to be Amstrad founder Lord Sugar’s business partner and receive an investment to the value of £250,000 to help develop their business idea. Two candidates will progress from the final five into next week’s series ending final. Leah has been in the winning team on four occasions, including during her only stint as a team’s Project Manager.
