This week's episode of hit TV show 'The Apprentice' further highlighted that being successful in business can come down to the smallest of margins.
Both teams, fresh from the shock of the previous week's double firing, were keen to impress on the waste disposal task, and in the end the two teams were separated by less than £10 profit as Team Logic took the honours.
Helen Milligan took charge of Team Logic and transformed them with a no nonsense approach that paid dividends when the task finished, pipping Team Venture, headed by Zoe Beresford, by £6.
With Lord Sugar seemingly enjoying seeing his charges get out of their business suits and into overalls it was Helen who shone, opting to remove rubbish for free in order to salvage the valuable metal from it.
