Wow, wow, wow, what a final!

Vana and Joseph's business plans were so different, with Vana proposing to launch a dating app requiring a huge amount of money to get it off the ground and Joseph pitching a service-based business that was good to go!

Vana delivered a fantastic and confident pitch with huge passion for her plan, but I loved Joseph's down-to-earth style and the way he implemented technology into plumbing and heating with the use of a smart app.

There were some hilarious moments in this final episode, from the filming of the cheesy 80s plumbing advert to Lord Sugar's always-witty one-liners in the final boardroom.

I was really pleased to see Joseph become Lord Sugar's new business partner.

After hearing his story of going from being expelled from school at 15 to having his own successful plumbing business in Peterborough, I instantly admired him.

Being a self-starter is incredibly hard, and making it happen from such a shaky start is even more commendable.

I can't wait to follow Joseph's progress and wish him the very best of luck!
