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.

“He spoke to my Year 10 business studies group about his life and entrepreneurship.

“He also spoke a little about the process he went through to get onto The Apprentice.”
