“Lord Sugar Wrecked My Life” Apprentice Winner Sues Alan

Two years ago, Apprentice winner Stella English bagged herself TV’s most coveted job as sidekick to Lord Sugar.

But a £100,000-per-year post was not enough for our Stella, who is now suing Lord Sugar for the experience which she claims nearly “wrecked her life?.

The 32-year-old quit her placement just two months before completion of her training contract, telling boss Sugar: “I don’t give a s**t.” She has now embarked on bringing legal proceedings against Lord Sugar for constructive dismissal – a challenge being contested.

Stella claims that the role she was offered as head of an IT project was “way beneath [her] abilities?. She added that she was “totally over-qualified?.

She told the Daily Mail: “Even if I’d wanted to I couldn’t go back to banking because I’d been out of the market too long and lost my qualifications. And I’d effectively taken several steps back down the ladder. Ten years’ worth really. It was very frustrating.”

But The Apprentice star does not hold anything against the business mogul personally. In fact, it turns out she wanted to see more of his beardy face!

She said: “In a funny way this isn’t about Lord Sugar. Odd as it sounds, I do quite like him as an individual – he can be quite funny and quite charming, and in a way I wish I’d spent more time with him – that he’d taken me under his wing more.

“If he had, I don’t think I would be in this situation. What I experienced had very little to do with him – and that was the problem.”

she is stupid if dosent like the job leave without causing a fuss and using bad language after lord sugar had just let you win the apprentice and is paying you 100k a year thats just greedy and selfish many people would love to have that Job and the apprentice is a great show.

C’mon, the Appentice is a joke program it should be called ‘market trader’ as really all they do is walk around the streets selling stuff, and they’re generally crap. The only ‘highlight’ of the show is when they show their true colours and try stab each other in the back in front of the bearded chipmunk.

Perchance another inadequate wannabe bemoaning her lot after realising that working for Mr. Amstrad ain’t sexy?!? Laugh, I split my sides!
