Lord Sugar says BBC made the decision to axe Young Apprentice

Lord Sugar

Business tycoon Lord Sugar isn't afraid to voice his opinion as can be seen by his witty one-liners and blunt put-downs against mouthy, incompetent candidates on The Apprentice. However, it wasn't Stuart Baggs or Jim Eastwood who was feeling the force of his fury tonight but newspaper The Sun after they reported that spin-off to his successful reality series, Young Apprentice had been axed because Lord Sugar had no time for it.

Taking to Twitter to clarify the reason that the spin-off series will not be having a fourth series after the third series airs from October this year, he tweeted: ''Young Apprentice will be on in October. Decision to make further series taken by BBC not ME.The Sun and radio stations are talking rubbish."

This will not affect the mainstream series which is set to run for at least two more years. Whilst he has not clarified exactly why BBC have made the decision not to renew it for a fourth series, it is thought that the series failing to garner quite the same ratings as the adult version may have been a factor.

Young Apprentice will return to BBC One for its' third and final series in October.
