A former contestant on TV’s The Apprentice was a big hit when he dropped in to meet students at Knights Templar School.
James Hill, who was fired by Lord Alan Sugar in week eight in the last series of the BBC show, visited the Baldock school to meet budding entrepreneurs.
The 26-year-old’s business ventures have included supplying gaming machines to clubs, opening a bar and restaurant and even selling chocolate bars to classmates when he was just 13.
James said: “I had a great day at Knights Templar School. I have never had so many selfies!
“I want to thank everyone for being so nice.
“All the students need to remember to believe in themselves and dare to dream. Always think big!”
Business studies teacher Dossy Brando said: “It was like having a global star in the school. The kids went bonkers!

“He was so kind and generous – nothing was too much trouble – and he signed loads of autographs and did endless selfies.
“He spoke to my Year 10 business studies group about his life and entrepreneurship.
“His message was to be determined, not to give up, to go for it, take calculated risks and work hard.
“He also spoke a little about the process he went through to get onto The Apprentice.”
