Apprentice star Jessica Cunningham lingerie China to launch racy business-themed lingerie after shes pictured in steamy embrace with fellow contestant Courtney Wood
APPRENTICE candidate Jessica Cunningham is launching a raunchy business-themed lingerie line inspired by her experience on the show.
As well as six boardroom outfits, it will feature six “really provocative” sets of lingerie – which her fellow contestant Frances Bishop, 25, has promised to model at the range’s launch next month.

The entrepreneur, who was known for her sexy image on the Apprentice, will release her Boardroom to Boudoir collection through her Prodigal Fox clothing firm, which she had been fighting for Lord Sugar’s investment in.
In an exclusive chat, Jessica explained: “There are six business outfits and six sets of lingerie which are going to be really, really provocative.
“I’m going to launch it next month and Frances has agreed to be a model for me.
“I want to get a few different female entrepreneurs to do the same to show that being a businesswoman doesn’t mean you can’t be sexy and body confident.”
After being criticised for stripping off after appearing on the programme, she has created the line to empower like-minded women.
She said: “I got slated for posing in my lingerie by people who said I’m not a credible businesswoman, so I want to break the stigma.
“Women have so many facets now, they can be what they want to be. Just because I’ve posed in my lingerie, it doesn’t take away the years of experience that I have.
“Also I’m a mum of three and people think that when you’re a mum you have to be really mumsy whereas I want to break all that kind of stigma that you have to be one thing or the other.
“It’s a very backward thinking thing. I want to empower women and show them that you can be whatever you want to be.”
The 29-year-old businesswoman reached the final five of the competition but was fired by Lord Sugar, 69, after the interviews stage.
The news of her new range comes just days after she went public with fellow Apprentice finalist Courtney Wood, 29.

The couple were photographed kissing poolside in Tenerife during a getaway after Christmas.
They were first linked romantically during their time on the show but remained coy about their relationship status and originally distanced themselves from each other.
Speaking last month, she said taking part in the show was “like a holiday” because she didn’t have to worry about looking after her kids as well as her business.

She said: "To be fair, I think with having children, I’ll be honest, that was like a walk in the park doing The Apprentice. It was great, it was like a holiday for me. I missed them but I made amazing friends.
"It’s been an incredible journey. I’m just going to embrace every opportunity and not put pressure on me, just see where it takes me."
