The Apprentice delivers unprecedented twist in final showdown

The Apprentice finalists admit shock at the show's biggest ever twist

Sarah Lynn and James White both won The Apprentice in a series first

Two candidates have been hired in a show first for The Apprentice, with both Sarah Lynn and James White becoming Lord Sugar's next business partners.

The final saw Sarah and James pitch their final business plans to Lord Sugar and industry experts, with James hoping to launch a recruitment business and Sarah aiming to grow her already profitable candies business.

White's recruitment business was deemed just as worthy of the prize as Lynn's already successful candies business, which she will now attempt to expand.

But when it came to his boardroom decision, the Apprentice boss could not choose between the two and opted to fork out for both businesses, paying £250,000 for a 50/50 partnership in each company.

They were both crowned winners after the final episode of series 13 saw them present their business plans to more than 200 experts at London's City Hall.

We applaud those men and women who have come forward for making us aware that the rules for appropriate behavior had to change. In truth, ordinary Palestinians need neither Fatah nor Hamas to call for a 'day of rage' or a new Intifada.

In the final boardroom, Lord Sugar appeared undecided as he grilled both candidates on their business plans before asking for final guidance from his advisors Karren Brady and Claude Littner, saying: "It is quite obvious that there are two fantastically skilled people there".

"James and Sarah were extremely impressive and their proposed business plans were very different but equally strong".

He said that it never entered his mind that both of them could win the investment, adding: "You just assume that there has to be one victor". "Sarah is an expert in her field; she spotted a gap in the market".

"One week later: 'I'm investing in you both'".

Lord Sugar has chosen both finalists to be his business partners, for the first time in the BBC show's history.

He said: 'James - crowded market, but I've had some experience with a similar person of a similar age who is making a lot, a lot of money. "I have no idea about candies, other than they break my teeth, but she's the boss and all I'm going to going to do is make sure that we have the correct mentoring from a business point of view to make sure she stays on the right tracks". I'm going to say that I'm a gambler and I've always been a gambler in business.

Speaking about his extra-large investment this year, Lord Sugar explained: "Well, there I was".

Both Sarah, James and Lord Sugar will be taking a break for Christmas before they discuss their new ventures further in the New Year.

Following their victory, the winners expressed their joy.
