Diary: Soutar grills shortlist

Diary just wouldn't be the same without some mention of The Apprentice. So we are pleased to report that Lord Sugar has called on yet another media type to help him find the person he's going to give a fake job to for two months (allegedly). Following the success of the magazine task, hosted by ShortList Media, its founder, Mike Soutar, got the nod to interview the final four candidates as part of a special last show in the series. The Scot admits to experiencing a bit of a thrill to be classed in the same group as the legendary Margaret Mountford, who returns for the special, but he declined to comment on the winner. Our money's on the contestant with an interest in "freemium" magazines.
