Arsenio Hall saw off competition from former American Idol finalist Clay Aiken to be named Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday.

Aiken, who lost the American Idol crown to Ruben Studdard in 2003, was runner-up once again after losing to the Coming To America star in the final task.

Trump 'hired' the former talk show host after he raised $167,100 (£104,000) for the Magic Johnson Foundation and also banked an additional $250,000 (£156,000) for the charity as the overall winner.

Before announcing his decision, Trump told the two finalists they "should be very, very proud" of their accomplishments throughout the series, adding, "I've never been so torn."
