'The Apprentice' UK host Lord Alan Sugar has revealed on Twitter that he wants to replace Donald Trump on the US version of the business reality show
Lord Alan Sugar wants to take over from Donald Trump on the US version of 'The Apprentice'.
NBC fired Trump after he made derogatory comments about Mexican immigrants during a speech last month in which he announced his bid to run to be the American President and Sugar, who hosts 'The Apprentice' on BBC One already, is keen to replace him on the show
When a Twitter user wrote "With Trump not doing The Apprentice USA anymore, @Lord_Sugar would make perfect replacement", Alan replied saying "I would like the challenge."
And People.com reports that NBC has "already reached out to Sugar".
A source told The Sun newspaper: "As soon as NBC cut all ties with Trump, Lord Sugar and [show creator] Mark Burnett started talking.
"They obviously know each other really well from working on the British version and have a great relationship."
The news will not please Trump, who had a Twitter spat in 2012 with his British rival in which he said: "Without my show you'd be nothing".
The insider added: "The fact that Sugar has a pretty bad relationship with Trump would make landing his old job all the more sweet."
