DUANE Bryan and Azhar Siddique, the two Trafford contestants in the current series of The Apprentice, enjoyed a ‘wake up call smoothie’ at Pancake Corner in Urmston yesterday.

Iftikhar Khan, the shop’s creative director, said their choice of drink was ‘perfect’ for the recent unseasonably warm weather.

“Duane is a friend of a friend so we invited him round and he decided to bring Azhar as well once he realised that the equipment we use was from his company,” said Iftikhar.

Iftikhar said both men had enjoyed the experience of life in Lord Sugar’s boardroom but were staying tight-lipped over what happens!

The series has finished filming but it will be several weeks before the nation discovers who Lord Sugar’s new apprentice is!
