As reported on The Star website, Frances Bishop who starred in the 2016 series of The Apprentice has called for tougher sentencing for shoplifters after being attacked in her own store.

Frances Bishop was working at the store in Waterdale Shopping Centre when she approached a man who was furtively placing two outfits into a large bag.

As she did so, he grabbed the bag, turned round and struck her in the face before running off.

Whilst only scratched on her arm during the encounter, Ms Bishop claims shoplifting is a growing problem for retailers nationwide and believes courts are too lenient when dealing with the culprits.
