Joseph Valente on The Apprentice win
'The Apprentice' winner Joseph Valente believes he'll succeed because he never takes "a break" from work.
The Peterborough plumber won Lord Alan Sugar's £250,000 investment on Sunday's (20.12.15) final, beating Oxford university student Vana Koutsomitis, with his impressive plumbing plan, and is confident he'll make the businessman a lot of money because he never slows down.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Joseph said: "It went amazing, I wanted to show how we were going to stand out and I think me and Lord Sugar have got very similar traits in how we like to work... I'll never stop working, I haven't got time for a break."
And the entrepreneur says his company Prime Time Plumbing - which he wants to expand across the UK - will take off because of the country's current housing situation.
He added: "The exciting thing is plumbing is advancing very quickly technologically, the country is getting bigger and bigger and more houses are being built so they require plumbers to install service and you know I've been in the business 10 years now and know it like the back of my hand. Lord Alan Sugar has invested money in me, and he isn't gonna lose, it's a simple as that."
Meanwhile, the likeable 27-year-old talent has also rubbished claims a twitter feud between axed candidates Selina Waterman-Smith and Charlene Wain dampened the show's spirits, after the bolshie blonde refused to return to the programme to help the finalists in their last task.
He revealed: "The show pushes you and tests you mentally, physically, emotionally. It's exhausting but exhilarating, exciting. I've made friends for life, enemies - not so much. Everyone has been humble which is good.
"Everybody gets on outside the show, and the ones that don't wanna talk, don't talk."
