My career's just beginning, says 'Apprentice' winner Stella English
Sunday 05 May 2013
Apprentice winner Stella English said she is "ready to move on" after losing her high-profile constructive dismissal claim against Lord Sugar and plans to launch her own fashion label inspired by Victoria Beckham.
The mother-of-two sued the Labour peer after resigning from the £100,000-a-year job that was her prize for winning series six of the BBC1 show in 2010 but had her case dismissed.
She told Hello! magazine: "I'm ready to move on to the next phase of my life. My career is just beginning, not ending."
Ms English said she went to the tribunal because she wanted to be heard, adding: "I wanted the opportunity to say what I was disappointed about and I certainly feel I've got it off my chest now.
"I've drawn a line under it. It has been a very difficult time and I'm very sorry it ended the way that it did. But I'm now earning twice as much money as I did when I worked for Lord Sugar, so it has worked out for the best."
She said she was shocked when Lord Sugar called her a "money grabber" and admitted it was "very, very hurtful", but added: "It's up to him how he chooses to convey his thoughts. I think mine are best said at home behind closed doors."
