THE Apprentice’s Nick Showering has revealed a VERY different side to Lord Sugar that viewers don’t see on screen.
The 31-year-old finance manager from London became the latest candidate to leave the series after failing to impress Lord Sugar during a task based at Silverstone.
The remaining candidates headed to the British Grand Prix track to run team building days for two businesses.
Whoever managed to make the most money at the end – once any refund requests had been taken into account – was the winning team but unfortunately Nick was on the losing side.
Nick had had a lucky escape from being fired last week, but in an exclusive chat with The Sun Online he revealed how he knew his days were numbered this week.
He said: “When we lost the task, I thought, Okay, I’m in a bit of trouble because in the previous episode, the pod one. I almost got on the wrong end of a double firing.
“And I knew then ‘if I don’t win the next task, I could be in huge trouble’.
“I was going to put myself forward as PM, but Steph obviously was in hospitality so I couldn’t really go for it. So I just have to hope that we won.”

He continued: “When we lost. I thought, ‘well, I’ve kind of messed up a bit in the kitchen. I’ve been really late with the lunch. I might not have sort of contributed enough. So I could be in real trouble.’”
Nick’s gut feeling was right and Lord Sugar, 74, gave him the sharp end of his tongue before pointing the dreaded firing finger at him.
But Nick revealed the billionaire has a softer side that viewers don’t get to see on the show.
He said: “There was a moment in Cornwall where I was on the market stall selling and I was on fire selling the tacos.
“Then in the boardroom Lord Sugar actually, as we left because we won, he sort of stopped us and gave me a mention in front of everyone.
“He said ‘Nick, just before you go I want to say well done in Cornwall, I heard you were fantastic, well done.”
The Apprentice airs Thursdays at 9pm on BBC One and is available on BBC iPlayer.
