The Apprentice winner Harpreet Kaur has discussed her burgeoning romance with show co-star Akshay Thakrar.

However, instead of chatting about the new batch of hopefuls, show host Tom Allen couldn’t help but quiz Harpreet about her relationship.

Seeing Akshay sat in the audience, Tom said: ‘Akshay, you were a candidate in last year’s process, but there’s also another reason you’re here, isn’t there?’

As Akshay smiled, Tom turned to Harpreet and said: ‘Isn’t that right, Harpreet?’

The audience broke into laughter with Harpeet saying: ‘Well, since the show and in the past few months, you know, something has blossomed between us.’

Harpreet looked embarassed as Tom joked: ‘Is it a £250,000 investment?’

Judge Karren Brady told Tom he was being nosy as he quoted Rihanna, saying: ‘You literally found love in a hopeless place.’

Harpreet then joked: ‘I feel like you’re waiting for more juicy details, aren’t you?’ to which Tom said: ‘tell us everything’.

Harpreet insisted nothing ever went on between the pair during filming as they were both so focused on the competition.

She said: ‘There was literally absolutely nothing going on at the house. And I think just going through the process, coming out of it, we built a friendship and it kind of went from there.’

Akshay agreed, saying the pair barely interacted at all until after the show was finished.

He said: ‘Me and Harpreet barely spoke on the show because we never worked on the same team.

‘And even while the show aired, we hardly spoke. It was only after I was like, “let’s grab dinner”.’

Harpeet beat fellow finalist Kathryn Louise Burn, who runs an online pyjama business, to Lord Sugar’s investment with her dessert brand Oh So Yum.

She still runs her kiosk, as well as managing a dessert parlour in Yorkshire, and since winning the show has already hit her first target in launching a delivery wide service, so customers up and down the country can enjoy her sweet treats.
