The 73-year-old business mogul has been at the helm of ‘The Apprentice’ since it launched in the UK in 2005 The reality TV game show premiered across the pond after being popular with the public, featuring future US President Donald Trump Since then Lord Sugar has hired and fired a number of hopeful entrepreneurs who fought for his support and the coveted £ 250,000 jackpot to start their business. The coronavirus pandemic has blocked the show’s filming schedule this year and in its stead the BBC will air ‘The Apprentice, Best Bits’ tonight

Hard-talking Lord Sugar of London’s East End followed President Trump’s success with the show which was forced to postpone season 16 until next year

The businessman, known for pointing his finger at the slogan « You are fired », claimed to be himself on the show and said: « I am what I am. there is no play in this thing « 

He denounced any possibility that the TV hit could be corrected to keep the more entertaining contestants in the competition and said otherwise they would have « kept the weirdos » longer

Responding to skepticism about the stars’ business acumen and larger-than-life personalities, he said, « We can’t have 14 Boring Bens, or you might as well watch ‘Songs of Praise.’

In previous years, Lord Sugar has donated his appearance fees to charity and worked closely with governments on youth business ventures, in the hope of nurturing the future businessmen and women

The avid Tottenham Hotspur fan said: « I have taken this apprenticeship business seriously. I will make sure the winner succeeds As some kind of role model for the youngsters »

Arguably part of his hope to help inspire and teach his skills to the next generation might have stemmed from his own difficult rise in business.

Lord Sugar said: « I really taught myself I’m sorry to say that but I started when I was 18 You tend to take things from the people you have dealt with »

He maintained his determination to « hand over something » in his 2005 interview with The Guardian and said he wanted to help newbies

« I don’t think a lot of people would want my job, I’m a little crazy I work more in a day than the average person in a week »

Lord Sugar has previously admitted to being a « big fan » of Sir Richard Branson but joked: « He is not as comfortable in front of a camera as I am »

He remains widely regarded in the industry and media mogul Rupert Murdoch has dubbed him « possibly Britain’s greatest entrepreneur »

Despite his success with technology, Lord Sugar joked that in « about 750 years » his designs could appear on « Antiques Roadshow »

He continued, « They’re going to release the outrageous Amstrad word processor presented by this Sugar guy And they’ll say, ‘That was the Sugar special » «
