'Apprentice' Nick Hewer wants OAP version

By
Apprentice star Nick Hewer has revealed that he would like to see a pensioner version of the competition.

The public relations consultant, who acts as an advisor to Lord Alan Sugar on the BBC series, said he would like the show to air more often than it currently does.

"We have 20 weeks of it a year now. But is that enough?" he told The Sun. "We need an old persons' Apprentice next, I think."
