The double winners of The Apprentice 2017 have spoken more about their surprise victory on the show. 

Viewers of the BBC One programme were dealt a surprise twist in the season finale over the weekend.

Sarah Lynn and James White were unveiled as the show's first joint winners by Lord Alan Sugar. 

Both of them spoke to Paul Ross and Carole Malone in the wake of their victory. 

Sarah - who runs a confectionary company - said: "it’s such an honour because we didn’t see it coming at all.

"We didn’t even think it was on the radar, so when it was announced we were both so happy and chuffed he felt enough about both of us. 

"The whole runner-up bit would have been difficult... and we didn’t have to do that."

James said Lord Alan Sugar saw something special in both of them. 

He told our hosts: “I think he saw two good business ideas and just wanted to back them.

"He really liked us as people as well, Sarah and I are genuine."
