A 16-year-old has been crowned this year's Young Apprentice after wowing Lord Sugar with "wisdom far beyond her years.

Zara Brownless beat 11 other candidates to the £25,000 prize fund, which she will use to kick-start her business career.



The A-level student, will pursue her education before developing her already-existing film company.



In the final of the BBC1 show, she came up with a Piggy Panic online video game, which required character Porky Pete to escape from a butcher.



Her rival, A-level student James McCullagh, devised a Crazy Cabinet game that sees the player take the role of prime minister.



Lord Sugar said: "Zara, you're calm, articulate and you look to be in control of your emotions, which is a good thing when you're in business.



"It was a hugely tough decision but Zara really showed wisdom and clarity far beyond her years."



Zara, who produces films for charities, said: "To say this is a dream come true doesn't even come close - I've loved the whole Young Apprentice experience and taken so much from it, and now I'm so excited about what the future holds for my business career."
