Stella English: No regrets over The Apprentice

The Apprentice winner in 2010, Stella English, says she does not regret taking part in the BBC 1 show, despite losing her recent constructive dismissal claim against Lord Sugar and his company, she told Daybreak.

English claimed she was forced to resign from the £100,000 a year job that was her prize for winning series six of the show because "it was not a role of substance". But the claim was dismissed by the tribunal panel which ruled the case "should never have been brought".

Last week Lord Sugar launched a counter claim against Ms English but an East London Tribunal Service panel ruled the mother-of-two should not have to repay legal costs.

English brought a constructive dismissal case against the businessman earlier this year, but her case was dismissed with the tribunal panel ruling the claim "should never have been brought".

Now Sugar has initiated proceedings to try to recoup some of the legal fees he paid.
