The Apprentice: Mark Wright's Climb Online already making a profit

The Apprentice winner Mark Wright says his company has already made a profit.

It's despite the SEO expert only launching his Climb Online website last month.

Mark had originally predicted not to turn a profit until eight months in but was elated to inform Lord Sugar that he was already making money.

However, Mark confessed: "Lord Sugar is the type of businessman who when you say you made a £10 profit, he wants to know why it's not £20."

The series ten champ won the show last year in December, securing £250,000 worth of investment from Lord Sugar.

Australian Mark took on The Apprentice without a clue about about the show or what he was letting himself in for.

And Mark reckons that was for the best, saying: "Not knowing who Lord Sugar was helped me. I was very normal around him while other candidates were trying to impress him or busy being characters that had been in other series' of the show."

Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, Mark went on: "I told myself, If I could get through week one, I would go on and win it. It is a game of Russian roulette, and people can end up not doing enough on the show, or doing too much.

"You can end up being just a face or name in a crowd, especially in the series I was in, which saw more candidates than ever before enter. I was just selling and hanging on for dear life."

The Apprentice will return to BBC One with a new series this autumn.
