The Apprentice contestants Kate Walsh and Philip Taylor have moved in together. Finalist Kate revealed Geordie Philip is currently staying with her and the pair are thinking about making it permanent. Kate, 27, revealed: "He is staying at my house at the moment while he's in London, so we've not made that permanent yet, but we'll see what happens." The competitive businesswoman revealed 29-year-old Philip has met her family and her mum loved him. She said: "We have met each other's parents - my mum thinks Philip is lovely, a real gentleman. "She was watching in the audience with Philip when they found out I'd been fired and he went over and gave her a big hug, so that definitely earned some brownie points. "My friends have given him the thumbs up... which is very important." But the couple have no plans to get married. Kate said: "Because of how we met, everybody's speculating about marriage. "If we were an everyday couple don't you think it would be a little too soon to be walking down the aisle?"
