Apprentice legends face Harry
TWO stars of The Apprentice faced a test of a different kind when they were grilled by a puppet for a hospice.
Kate Walsh, the runner-up in the 2009 series, and Nick Hewer, advisor to Lord Sugar, were interviewed by Harry – a puppet at the centre of a campaign to raise �1million over three years for Richard House Children’s Hospice.
The hospice has released two new videos of the stars being grilled by the puppet as part of the Harry’s Million campaign. Both are on www.facebook.com/harrysmillion.
Central to the campaign is the cheeky puppet Harry who is based on Harry Singh, a young adult at the Beckton hospice.
It was created by the children at Richard House with the help of the people behind the CBeebies children’s programme Waybuloo.
The real Harry has received care at Richard House for nine years and now works one day a week at the hospice, writes KAY ATWAL.
In his interview, Nick revealed his hobby of collecting vintage tractors as well as what he thinks you need to make it on The Apprentice.

He said: “The chances of you getting through (to The Apprentice) depend on the creativity of your application form and how brilliant you are in the audition.”
Nick praises Harry’s “tenacity, imagination, creativity and will to succeed and what he’s already achieved” and that he thinks his chances of being the next apprentice are greatly enhanced.
Kate Walsh told Harry that not winning The Apprentice wasn’t so bad after all and was left red-faced when he said she’s “way more fit in real life”.
