“Doing it for Leeds,” the swimwear entrepreneur said on Twitter after securing her spot in the final, later adding that she was “just a normal Yorkshire girl trying to go places”. Sian can hold her head high; the 26-year-old from Alwoodley has stayed calm and collected through testing challenges, demonstrating business acumen and, in true Yorkshire fashion, a refreshing down-to-earth and no-nonsense approach.

Sian, who will be Lord Sugar’s next business partner after going head-to-head against Lancashire nut milk brand owner Camilla Ainsworth in a final she dubbed “the year of the northern woman”, has done the whole region proud - and serves as yet another reminder of the talent, innovation and skills that continue to come out of Yorkshire.
