SHE was renowned for her thick Lancashire accent, but did you know The Apprentice’s Jenna Whittingham owns a salon in Wrightington?

The 25-year-old, who hails from Lathom, Lancashire, opened her second salon - Beauty and Boutique, in Wrightington - last month, adding to her original site in Preston.

Fans of the BBC One show saw Jenna fired on Wednesday, and she admitted she was disappointed to lose out on the prize of working with Sir Alan Sugar, following a disastrous video making task.

She said: “I was so close yet so far. I did think in the boardroom, I had a good pitch, but maybe I should have fought my corner a bit more.

“So near the final, they can’t allow any mistakes.”
