The Apprentice






Former Apprentice winner Tim Campbell is to stand-in for Lord Sugar’s assistant Claude Littner on this year’s series.

Littner, 72, will be absent from the 16th series of the BBC One business programme following a cycling accident. 

Campbell, who became the first ever Apprentice in 2005, said returning to the show was like coming "full circle". 

"It was a great regret when we heard about Claude, who is such a massive part of the franchise," he said."We're really pleased that he's doing well and he's on the road to recovery." 

Littner's accident occurred last April while riding an electric bike. The 72-year-old injured his right leg so badly that doctors considered amputating it. 

As a result, he was unable to film The Apprentice, so Campbell was assigned to follow the two teams, along with Lord Sugar's other aide, Karren Brady.

Campbell joined Sugar's company Amstrad on a £100,000 salary after winning the first series in 2005. He went on to set up his own digital marketing agency and was made an MBE in 2012.
