The Apprentice 2014: Nick Hewer is a DIVA!

Nick Hewer (The Apprentice 2013)

Nick Hewer has apparently turned into a bit of a diva since starting on The Apprentice.

At least that's according to his own boss Lord Sugar.

The Amsair chief told this week how he originally had to practically beg PR guru Nick to take part in the BBC series when it first started but now the spin doctor is fronting his own shows such as Channel 4's Countdown.

Lord Sugar joked: "Now he's a bleeding diva and he'll go to the opening of envelope.

"But he's a lovely bloke and I'll do anything for him."

Both Lord Sugar and Nick will be back for the tenth series of the show later this year which won't air until nearer Christmas time.

According to Lord Sugar, the delay is due to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil which will air on the BBC between June and July this summer.

Asked about the return of the show recently, the Apprentice boss replied to a fan on Twitter: "It won't be on until Autumn of 2014 to avoid the World Cup."
