The Apprentice’s Lord Sugar still hasn’t met Harpreet’s sister despite investing in their joint company amid controversy
LORD Sugar revealed he hasn't The Apprentice winner Harpreet Kaur's sister despite investing £250k in their joint company.
The billionaire businessman has poured his wealth into the siblings' dessert brand Oh So Yum! after Harpreet saw off 15 other entrepreneurs on the BBC show.
Speaking on today's This Morning from his Florida home, he said he was looking forward to finally meeting Gurvinder.
He said: "I think I saw her on the programme last night, on the You're Hired programme with your mum, but I'm sure I'm going to be looking forward to meeting both her sister… and I've got a funny feeling I'll be meeting her mum also."
Viewers were concerned for Gurvinder last night after Harpreet said she was prepared to give up her 50 percent stake in the business should Lord Sugar invest.
The veteran businessman even seemed taken aback by her willingness to relinquish her share.

Harpreet, 30, from West Yorkshire beat Kathryn Burn, 29, in the final boardroom showdown to realise a lifelong dream.
However, she had to wait six months to find out it was her who had clinched the prize – and only found out last week.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, she said: “I’m just ecstatic. I’m so happy. I’m proud of myself. I’ve worked really really hard to get to this point.
"Since the age of 18 I’ve just been at it full time. I’ve never stopped, and I feel this is the moment I was waiting for.”

Harpreet, whose parents Jas and Pete run a corner shop in Brighouse, hosted a viewing party for her family and friends last night.
Growing up, the former bank worker was quiet and shy compared to her siblings, but she found her voice after earning a first degree through The Open University.
The businesswoman put her managerial skills to good use on The Apprentice and was overcome with emotion when Lord Sugar chose her.
She said: “When I was in that final boardroom it was a bit of a surreal, out of body experience for me because that’s the moment I was waiting for.
“When the other candidates left and it was just me and Kathryn I got quite emotional. I could not believe I was there, and Lord Sugar decided I would be his business partner.
