Apprentice star Jessica Cunningham wraps up in vintage-style fur for night out... after teasing her incredible figure in racy swimwear shots

She proved on Tuesday that she had the beauty as well as the brains, when swimwear shots of Apprentice candidate Jessica Cunningham surfaced online.

But Lord Sugar's boardroom protegee was keeping covered up that night though, as she hit the town to celebrate a former contestant's success.

Jessica, who is on the final straight for the win herself, looked glamorous in vintage-style fur, which she robed around her shoulders to conceal her hourglass shape.

The fashion entrepreneur hoisted the side of the swimsuit up to reveal her slender sides and a glimpse of her pert derriere.

Before turning her hand to business, mother-of-three Jessica from Dronfield in Derbyshire, used to be a stripper in a club in Liverpool.

Jessica could pocket from £40 to £300 as an exotic dancer at X In The City, a club which describes itself as 'Liverpool's number one lap dancing bar for stag nights', reveals the Sunday People.

The online entrepreneur, who runs women's fashion house Prodigal Fox, told MailOnline: 'I briefly worked in a strip club a long time ago for a couple of months and this is very much a part of my past.'

Jessica's favourite song to perform to was Private Dancer by Tina Tuner and a pal told the People: 'When that came on, she would work the pole and entice the punters to get a dance from her for £5 or £10.

For richer clients, she would offer them private dances at £50 a time.

'It was a means to an end but Jess made the most of it. She's drop-dead ­gorgeous and was a real hit with the punters.'

Just six of the initial 18 Apprentice candidates remain in the show, with the finale airing on Thursday.

They are: cake company owner Alana Spencer; novelty gift entrepreneur Courtney Wood; children’s clothing boss Frances Bishop; make-up studio owner Grainne McCoy; online fashion maven Jessica and recruitment agent Trishna Thakrar. 

The winner of the £250,000 prize is such a closely guarded secret that two endings are filmed so that only a handful of people know the real result.
