The Apprentice has reached the halfway stage - and a contestant from Dronfield is still going strong.

Andrew Brady, who has been nicknamed Clark Kent following his likeness to the fictional comic book character, is the only Derbyshire candidate remaining after Lord Sugar fired Chesterfield's Sarah-Jayne Clark last week.

Project engineer, Andrew, 26, who is very active on Twitter and has gained more than 4,500 followers, has made it through six tasks so far.

But it looked like Lord Sugar was about to send him packing last week along with Sarah-Jayne after finding himself in the boardroom following a nightmare task.

The two teams were sent to Bruges, Belgium, where they were asked to give people a high-quality tour of the city and then choose and sell souvenirs to guests.

However, Andrew overpromised on the amount of alcohol they would get during the beer tasting section of the tour and came under fire from Baroness Karren Brady.

Luckily, he survived another week and it was clothing designer Sarah-Jayne who exited the process.

There are another four tasks to go, followed by the interview process in week 11 and the final in week 12.

The winner gets £250,000 from Lord Sugar to start their new business.

This week Lord Sugar instructs the candidates to create advertising campaigns for a brand new car. The teams take two paths - one half produce a television advert, while the other create a digital billboard advert. Both teams must then pitch their finished campaigns to industry experts.

The Apprentice airs tonight at 9pm on BBC1.
