Margaret Mountford | Action Medical Research

Margaret Mountford

Former corporate lawyer Margaret Mountford rose to TV fame as one of Lord Sugar’s original team of expert advisers on popular BBC show The Apprentice.

In 2009 Margaret announced she was leaving the show at the end of series 5 and has gone on to complete a PhD in papyrology (the study of ancient literature) at University College London.

In April 2013 Margaret joined guests for the annual Belfast Ladies’ Lunch, which raised more than £8,000 for the charity. She said: "I am delighted to be associated with Action Medical Research - a charity which 60 years on, continues to find and fund some of the best vital medical research."
