'Apprentice' winner is sick on first day
Apprentice winner Lee McQueen has missed his first day at work for Sir Alan Sugar due to illness.

The reality TV contestant, 30, reportedly angered his new boss by calling in sick yesterday.

"This will make Sir Alan really cross because he hates being let down," a source told The Sun.

"Lee was really keen to start work but he felt he wasn't up to it and had to stay at home."

McQueen beat 15 contestants to a £100,000-a-year job helping develop digital display advertising last month.

A spokesperson for Sir Alan Sugar's holding company Amshold said: "Lee is at home with a virus. He'll be at work as soon as he is well."
