SHOCK! The Apprentice's Claire Young quits new job
Claire Young lost out to Lee McQueen on The Apprentice
The runner-up was due to start working for Karren Brady at Birmingham City Football Club in a sales role.
But now Claire, 29, has decided to set up her own firm to help her fulfil her showbiz ambitions.
‘I have been offered a great deal of media work and by setting up a consultancy I can do both,’ she tells the Daily Star.
‘I talked to Karren and explained I wanted to pursue both the media work and my own consultancy and she kindly agreed to let me stand down. She's been brilliant and I'm grateful to her.’
The job with Karren, 39, is thought to have paid more than the £100k Sir Alan Sugar, 61, is paying winner Lee McQueen.
