Sir Alan Sugar

Brett Butler-Smythe became the latest contestant to be fired by Lord Alan Sugar on Wednesday night’s edition of ‘The Apprentice’ after an ‘embarrassing’ performance during the team challenge. The teams had been challenged to pitch some ‘healthy snacks’ to retailers including Tesco, but their efforts were so bad that both ended up with zero sales.

Alan SugarAlan Sugar had a tough time deciding who to fire on Wednesday night’s ‘The Apprentice’.

“That’s never happened before,” Sugar said, when it was revealed that both teams had failed miserably. While there were certainly no winners, Butler-Smythe came into criticism for his ‘waffling’ pitch, which included describing a vegetable as ‘iconic’.

Sir Alan Sugar Katie Hopkins

Businessman and reality TV star Sir Alan Sugar has been branded as an ‘idiot’ and ‘out of touch’ after he suggested in a new interview that poverty doesn’t exist in Britain because poor people own microwaves and televisions.

The 68 year old knight of the realm, who is conservatively estimated to have a personal wealth of around £900 million, was speaking to The Times Magazine in an article that was published on Sunday (October 4th) when he went on an extraordinary rant, claiming that people should travel back in time 60 years to know what poverty is really like.

Sir Alan Sugar Tells Katie Hopkins To "Shut Up" After Her Cilla Black Comments


Sir Alan Sugar Katie Hopkins Cilla Black

Sir Alan Sugar has told his former protégé Katie Hopkins to “shut up” and called her an idiot, criticising her poorly-timed tweets mocking celebrities who have been mourning the death of Cilla Black over the last 24 hours.

The oft-controversial former ‘Apprentice’ and ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ star Hopkins, now a columnist for The Sun, sparked outrage on Sunday (August 2nd) when she took aim at the amount of tributes that were pouring in for the 72 year old on Twitter. She wrote “If there are any celebrities who haven't yet tweeted their sadness over Cilla, please report to Sincerity Services immediately #rushtogush.”

The Apprentice Nick Hewer Sir Alan Sugar

It is, with regret, that we have to tell you Nick Hewer has resigned as Alan Sugar's confidante on British business competition show 'The Apprentice' after ten years by his side. It is unknown as yet as to who will replace him.

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?"

Record Low Viewing Figures Haunt Leah Totton's Apprentice Victory


Sir Alan Sugar

This year’s Apprentice winner has been chosen – Leah Totton is a doctor, who hopes to open a high street chain of clinics, offering cosmetic treatments at an affordable price. While Totton might want to beautify the world however, the number of viewers her victory attracted wasn’t exactly a sight for sore eyes. The show, airing between 8pm and 10pm, was watched by just 5.7 million viewers, matching the lowest viewer activity ever recorded for an Apprentice final. This is down significantly from the 6.1 million, who tuned into the eighth series finale and it also marks a seven-episode low for this season.

Lord Sugar, BATA
Fewer people than ever seem to care about Lord Sugar's latest business partner.

Still, the BBC is keeping the show alive and, unlike other reality formats (cough, The Voice, cough) The Apprentice won’t be going through any major changes in its format or lineup. The only other finale with stats this low is The Apprentice’s second series, won by Michelle Dewberry.The current motivational speaker was crowned as the winner in 2006, but apparently she simply couldn't motivate people to tune in.

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."
