Jamie Lester has held on to his place in the Apprentice for another week.

The Jewish property developer avoided being fired by Lord Sugar despite being a member of losing team Synergy.

He clashed with project manager Sandeesh Samra early on in the task, which was to create and sell a “virtual experience” to members of the public at London’s Westfield shopping centre.

Appointed as a runner, he told Sandeesh that he would be wasted in the role and compared it to working as a delivery man.

Despite a shambolic effort by team Apollo, Synergy made a profit of £222.97, nearly £40 less than their rivals.

However Jamie was not taken into the boardroom and Lord Sugar fired Sandeesh, criticising the lack of planning.
