Nick Hewer wants to marry his former 'Apprentice' co-star Margaret Mountford.
The former PR guru - who acts as an advisor to show boss Lord Alan Sugar - is happily married, but admitted he will always have a place in his affections for Margaret, who had a similar job to his on the show until she left in 2009.
He said: "I'm very fond of her. I like to think she's fond of me. She has got Elizabeth Taylor's eyes and great teeth. Margaret is not currently married. I always remain hopeful."
Nick - who has worked alongside Lord Sugar since 1983 - also revealed the multi-millionaire businessman "tortured" him into agreeing to appear on BBC One series 'The Apprentice.
He added to G2: "Lord Sugar rang me and said he wanted to be on this new TV show called 'The Apprentice'. He tortured me for days at his house in Marbella. I said, 'I don't want to be on TV'. He said, 'You're a wimp'. He said he would fix a fee for me, which I thought was a bit rich.
"In the end, I went for it. I had nothing else to do."
