The Apprentice 2014: James Hill tried to hit on Karren Brady

The Apprentice 2014

Fired Apprentice candidate James Hill has claimed he tried (and failed) to chat up Karren Brady.

The cocksure contestant, booted out two weeks ago by Lord Sugar, revealed how his charms failed on the businesswoman when filming for the series earlier this year.

James said: "I did try to chat her up but she said I'm like a cross between a puppy and a teenager, so I don't think she's that interested."

It seems that the knock-back has done little to harm James' confidence, telling Heat magazine this month: "It's hard being so good-looking."

He said: "I've had marriage proposals and all the usual stuff, but I've not met the perfect woman, that's for sure."

James reckons he's been this year's Apprentice eye candy but said that other guys in the competition did potentially put up a challenge.

"I thought Stephen [Ugoalah] was quite a handsome guy. He's got a presence and is a strapping bloke," declared James in an interview with Heat magazine this week. "Mark [Wright] is probably number three."

The Apprentice 2014 airs Wednesday nights on ITV.
