APPRENTICE runner up Luisa Zissman has been accused of rigging a TV award in which she beat Helen Flanagan to a gong.

The 26-year-old lads’ mag favourite, who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year, is alleged to have hired in computer experts at a marketing firm called seo77 to rig an online vote which gained her more votes than actress Helen, aged 23 — winning her a National Reality TV Award.

Luisa has denied being involved with any underhand dealings and said someone was “making money out of me with false allegations.”

Helen is yet to comment on the matter.
