Myleene Klass In Sweary 'Countdown' Incident


Myleene Klass Nick Hewer Rachel Riley

Middle class icon Myleene Klass turned the air blue in an episode of ‘Countdown’ when she spelled a rude word. The 37 year old former ‘One Show’ presenter is a guest this week on the show’s ‘Dictionary Corner’, and managed to form a crude – but rather impressive – word.

She told presenter Nick Hewer: “I’ve got a rude one”, before spelling out the eight letter word ‘gobs***e’ on Tuesday afternoon’s show, after the two contestants had only made the same seven letter word ‘ghosted’.

Known for his quizzical eyebrows and cutting comments, Nick Hewer would be an ominous presence watching over the tasks of one of two teams on the show, before subsequently snitching on them to Lord Sugar when they were called to the boardroom. Now, however, the 70-year-old has decided to leave his post, admitting that he's no longer up to the task of following groups of young, enthusiastic, would-be entrepreneurs for twelve weeks as they rush to complete their assignments.

Countdown Host Nick Hewer's Watch Stolen by Tourist


Sir Alan Sugar Nick Hewer

The right hand man of Lord Alan Sugar, Nick Hewer has hosted Countdown for the past two years, but he might be struggling to keep an eye on the time this week after he was the subject of a street robbery, losing his International Watch Company timepiece. The IWC are a high-end Swiss watch manufacturer with prices beginning at £3500 for a basic design, so it's no wonder Hewer wasn't too happy about the theft.

Hewer was asked by tourists to take a photo of them, and when he went to hand back the camera phone, the opportunistic thieves swiped his watch, which is believed to be worth up to £10,000. Hewer was understandably annoyed by the incident, taking to his Twitter account where he posted "NEVER agree to take photo of stranger with their camera phone. They'll steal your watch so fast when you hand phone back Anyone seen my IWC?"

The Apprentice Winner Crowned, But Is It Leah Or Luisa?


Sir Alan Sugar Karren Brady Nick Hewer

It was the kind of edge-of your-seat TV that the BBC's The Apprentice provides so well - editing as clunky as ever - as the candidate who was set up to look like a winner suffered a crushing defeat. After weeks of squabbelling and drama, Lord Alan Sugar's pendulum-like sausage finger swung round to hire Dr. Leah Totton and her cosmetic surgery chain business plan.

Wraps Up For Another Year.

After the first few weeks of girl-on-girl bitchiness and constant catfights, it's a small marvel any girls prevailed at all. Hair was furiously tossed, spidery eyelashes were glared through and towering heels were stamped as the show saw some of its most aggressive power struggles in its nine series.

The Apprentice: After This Week's Firing The Show Gets Serious


Sir Alan Sugar Nick Hewer Karren Brady

Alex Mills was this week's latest boardroom casualty, after failing to impress Lord Sugar on this week's ready meals task. Fans of such classic moments "Will you shut up Jordan, you silly sh*t!", 'Bad-date' Herbert, and "I don't need Viagra - I'm from Wales" will collectively shed a mournful tear as the 22 year-old Welshman was the latest to fall victim to the Lord's pointy finger.

Hard-Faced Businessman Lord Sugar Decided Alex Mills Wasn't Up To Scratch.

At this stage in the game, after nine episodes, each remaining candidate has been put rigorously through their paces, with such challenging tasks as designing an office away day, creating a dating website, and selling caravans at a convention. This week the teams had to come up with a new ready meal brand to pitch to supermarkets, with Mills project managing team Endeavour against the formidable Neil Clough-headed team Evolve. Mills came up with an idea for children's "Poppity-Ping" meals, named after the Welsh slang for microwave. However, he conceded to dashing teammate Miles Mordaunt's "Deadly Dinners" suggestion, which excited the kids with its horror themed, skull-adorned packaging but parents, executives and Sugar's aide Nick Hewer weren't impressed, with Hewer remarking with his trademark wasp-chewing expression: "There's a skull in the middle of it. You find them on dangerous products like bleach and drain cleaner."
