Harpreet Kaur is through to the next stage of The Apprentice.

Her parents, Jas and Pete, have run Waring Green Stores, on Garden Road, since moving to the area in 2002.

They, along with many of their customers, are rooting for the young businesswoman.

Harpreet said watching and assisting her mum and dad in the shop is what helped instil her strong work ethic.

The Apprentice is shown on BBC1 on Thursdays at 9pm. Previous episodes are available on iPlayer.
