Rochelle, the Apprentice finalist, disregards Dani’s directing abilities for lack of time – SEO optimized heading.
As The Apprentice 2023 final looms, Rochelle Raye Anthony and Marnie Swindells are set to give it their all in one last task.
However, there’s a chance that too many cooks could cause havoc in the kitchen, as fired candidate Dani Donovan returns to lend a helping hand.
The final episode sees Rochelle and Marnie asked to launch the businesses they want Lord Alan Sugar to invest £250,000 in, proving why they deserve to become his next partner.
It’s a fan-favourite episode, for sure, as old faces return to assist the finalists with designing their brands and creating advertisements.
But in an exclusive clip shared with Metro.co.uk, Rochelle appears keen to not let pal Dani take over directing duties too much.
The preview captures the ladies on set for Rochelle’s advert, showcasing her range of hair extensions.

Semi-finalist Victoria Goulbourne also returns to model the luscious locks, swishing her blonde tresses around for the camera.
And while Rochelle is more than comfortable dishing out directions for Victoria to follow, Dani is also wrestling for control.
The pair continue to talk over one another, as Rochelle shares that she wants the ad to be ‘serious’ while Dani asks Victoria not to ‘turn around so much’.
Dani proceeds to sigh deeply, jotting down on her notes the changes being made.

Chatting individually mid-filming, Rochelle begins: ‘So, the team is working really well together.
‘Dani is directing.’
On not wanting to give Dani too much control, she adds: ‘I do have a tendency to drop in.
‘But, this is my baby and it has to be perfect.’
‘Shall I do the blowing?’, Dani is then asks eagerly, as Rochelle makes a wind machine on a budget with hairdryers to give the ad a luxurious feel.
‘No, you’re the director,’ Rochelle shuts down, leaving Dani stumped.

Speaking ahead of the episode airing, salon owner Rochelle said: ‘I am so privileged and proud to be a finalist, it’s been such a rollercoaster of a journey.’
The 35-year-old continued: ‘But this is my chance to put my business and industry on a platform and show everyone what I am made of and do the pitch of my life, I am so ready, bring it on.’
Court advocate and gold-medal winning boxer Marnie added: ‘I am so happy to be in the final after 11 weeks of hard work and having to pitch everybody else’s products on tasks.’
‘This is now my opportunity to showcase what I’ve been working on and give my business the platform it deserves,’ added the fellow finalist.
But only one can walk away with Lord Sugar’s investment… who will it be?
The Apprentice final episode will air on Thursday, March 23 at 9pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
