Lord Sugar's right-hand man Nick Hewer has admitted he ''hates every minute'' of 'The Apprentice'
Nick Hewer "hates every minute" of 'The Apprentice'.
The PR mogul - who is Lord Alan Sugar's right-hand man on the BBC One business show - explained taking part in the series requires him to put his life on hold in favour of "eating sandwiches in a gutter in Hackney".
He said: "I hate every minute of it because it's very hard. We put our businesses and our social lives on hold for weeks and weeks and then spend our days eating sandwiches somewhere in a gutter in Hackney.
"And then we go into the boardroom after a 20-hour day with no script and Lord Sugar, who clearly missed his vocation as a criminal barrister, is in charge."
Nick - who has worked for Lord Sugar for more than 20 years - admitted even he has been on the receiving end of a tongue-lashing from the multi-millionaire businessman.
He added to heat magazine: "You'll be out for dinner with him and then he'll ring you at 8am the next morning and give you a b******ing. Even when you don't work for him, you get a b******ing.
"It's immediately forgotten, though, and the great thing about Alan is he's exceptionally loyal and inspires great loyalty in everyone he works with. He's by far the greatest leader I've ever come across."
