BURY’S very own Apprentice candidate is through to the next round and has continued his unbeaten run.

Samuel Boateng had made it to last night’s Week Five of hit BBC1 show The Apprentice without being on the losing side and there was extra pressure this week as he was project manager.

The two teams were challenged to pick a new cycling product that would soon be put on sale and come up with a crowdfunding campaign for it.

The 27-year-old, who studied at Castlebrook High School and Holy Cross College, again tasted victory after the team he led drew more cash donations than their rivals.

Earlier this week, Samuel told the Bury Times that he had come under fire for appearing too quiet on the show and promised to be more vocal in last night’s episode.

However, the sales manager had his teammates puzzled when he acted out a strange cycling-themed mime aimed that he wanted a team of performers to do at a packed London Waterloo Rail Station.

After hearing in the boardroom that the publicity stunt failed to grab the public’s attention, Lord Sugar joked: “Napoleon had more success at Waterloo than you did.”

But all ended well for dad-of-one Samuel as he made it safely through to the next round, which will be aired on BBC1 at 9pm next Thursday.
