The Apprentice’s Nick Hewer pays emotional tribute to show’s first ever winner – & reveals his impressive career change | The Sun

THE Apprentice’s Nick Hewer has paid an emotional tribute to the show’s first ever winner – and revealed his impressive career change.

Nick, 78, was one of Lord Sugar's advisors on the BBC show from the first series in 2005 until 2014.

Since then, Nick has gone on to host Countdown and regularly appears on other TV shows, but The Apprentice remains close to his heart.

Taking to his Twitter account on Wednesday, Nick shared a selfie with the show's first ever winner, Tim Campbell.

Both men looked dapper in suits and ties as they smiled for the snap.

Nick captioned it: "1st winner of the Apprentice now adviser to Lord Sugar, Tim Campbell MBE, lead judge at the Livery Academy Awards at Mansion House last night."

Nick continued with pride: "Livery companies helping stimulate business and entrepreneurial skills among sixth form pupils at state schools."

Tim, 45, certainly has come a long way since he appeared on the show.

After working for Lord Sugar's Amstrad company for two years, he went on to co-found the Bright Ideas Trust.

In 2012 he was awarded an MBE for Services to Enterprise Culture and continues to work on a number of business projects.

Tim returned to The Apprentice as one of Lord Sugar's aides in 2022 after Claude Littner injured himself in a cycling accident, before returning for the current series airing on BBC One.

Tim told The Sun Online last year of working with Lord Sugar: "My experience is unique to the relationship I've had with him.

"And I'm really lucky that the way that we've always worked together has been positive and worked out.

"But relationships are relationship and people are people, not everybody's supposed to get on, not everyone's supposed to be harmonious.

"I think what every contestant would hopefully agree is that they have benefited from going through the process because whether it's the profile, it's profit, or it's a new partner or whatever it is, some positive has come out of the other side.

"So I know that my life was markedly better as a result. And I think most people, probably barring one actual case, I think most people would say that their lives had been enhanced or better as a result of it."

The Apprentice continues tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
