Admittedly, it’s a little early to be mentioning the ‘C’ word (we’re looking at you and your advent calendars Marks & Spencer!), but a little birdie tells us that Wednesfield native and runner up on BBC TV show The Apprentice Ruth Badger has signed up to turn on the Christmas lights in Wednesfield this year.
Since finishing as runner up on the 2006 series of The Apprentice Ruth has presented her own TV show, Badger or Bust, and now has her own consultancy firm, Ruth Badger Consultancy Ltd in Manchester . The former Wodensfield Primary School pupil now looks set to be ‘driving home for Christmas’.
Local officials are pledging to make this year’s Christmas lights turn on bigger and better than ever before – stay tuned for further details very soon.
