SHE was famously fired at the final hurdle by Sir Alan Sugar in the second series of top TV show The Apprentice.

Now Ruth Badger is set to pass on the wealth of her business knowledge at the University of Hertfordshire.

She will be hosting UHAngels - a Dragons' Den-style event in which wannabe entrepreneurs will pitch their ideas to some of Times Territory's best business minds: the Angel Investors.

Ms Badger, who set up her own consultancy firm in June 2006, off the back of her fame in the hit BBC show, will also deliver a keynote speech and preside over a question/answer session.
