'The Apprentice' star April Jackson had a secret four-month romance with Usain Bolt after meeting the athlete in 2012
'The Apprentice' candidate April Jackson dated Usain Bolt.
The 26-year-old former beauty queen - who is currently competing for a £250,000 business investment from Lord Alan Sugar on the BBC One show - reportedly enjoyed a four-month romance with the world record holding sprinter.
A source revealed: "They were introduced in 2012 but it wasn't until the following year they got closer and started to date. It was more than a fling and they developed feelings for each other. It was tricky because of Usain's busy schedule."
April is said to have enjoyed a number of secret dates with the sprinter but was forced to call time on the romance because of his busy schedule.
The insider told The Sun newspaper: "Whenever he was in London they enjoyed going to clubs and having fun.
"They called it quits as Usain's work commitments kept them apart."
However, April's fling with the 29-year-old athlete appears to have left a lasting impression on her as she referred to his incredible speed during her introduction on 'The Apprentice'.
The former Miss Jamaica said: "I'm Jamaican. We come first, we win on the track and we will win in the boardroom."
