Cover Time: Here - Alessia Cara

James Gilmore charts his favourite covers of Alessia Cara's hit single, "Here".

Here by Alessia Cara has made massive waves in the music industry since it was released earlier this year.

It acts as the breakthrough single for new 19-year old Canadian artist Alessia Cara who was discovered by Universal Music after she started posting covers on YouTube. Whilst it had a mediocre performance on charts around the world (it made the #10 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and #144 on the UK Singles Charts), the track has since been celebrated by fans internationally.

Interview with Ruth Whiteley

Joseph Perry catches up with the colourful candidate from The Apprentice

Interview with Ruth Whiteley
Few Apprentice candidates have caught the public eye in the way that Ruth Whiteley did earlier this series. Between the arrogant architects, and brash beauticians, stood an enthusiastic businesswoman - and an even brighter suit!

She earned the affection of Twitter users and the wider public with her straight-talking, no-nonsense approach to business. Whether she was starring in a billboard advert for ‘Desert’s Secret’ (remember that?), or shovelling animal excrement on a farm in Kent, Ruth Whiteley took on every challenge with professionalism and humour.

She brought a lighter, more polished touch to a series embroiled in ‘fix’ claims and general incompetence.

Although the Pet Show task proved to be her undoing, Apprentice fans will remember Ruth and her suit for some time.

She spoke to Joseph Perry on his Saturday afternoon show about her time in the boardroom, Lord Sugar’s controversial…
