Karthik lasted seven weeks on the hit BBC1 show, before being unceramoniously fired by Lord Sugar.

Now back in his home town, Karthik will be joining students and staff from Isebrook and Wren Spinney schools at The Studio, Lower Street, Kettering, from 1pm on Saturday, December 3, to support them with their Christmas opening.

Both schools have been working hard over the last term building up a stock of items for the Christmas market.

Ise Print with their successful printing business offer personalised printing services on items such as Christmas sacks, mugs, coasters and T-shirts, and many more at highly competitive prices, while Wren Spinney students have produced a range of hand-crafted Christmas decorations and gifts for children and adults.

Also available in store is a wide range of ‘pre-loved’ children’s and adults clothing.

Ann Brown, business manager at Wren Spinney School, said: “The work experience our students undertake at The Studio equips them with valuable life and employment skills for the future through real work experiences in the community.

“We are sure that Karthik will share some of his tips and expertise with our students!”

The Studio is located in Lower Street, in Kettering (opposite the Post Office) and is open weekdays from 10am to 2.30pm. In the run-up to Christmas it is open Saturdays from 10am to 2pm.
