Stevenage businessman Scott Saunders has told the Comet viewers are in for a treat in tonight’s latest episode of Lord Sugar’s The Apprentice.

The 27-year-old, who runs a successful online comparison website called Payroll-Supermarket, is telling people to tune into BBC One’s hit show as it’s: ‘One of The Apprentice’s funniest ever programmes’.

Scott has been on the victorious Versatile team both times so far for the show which has been watched by 6.4 million fans – making it the programme’s most impressive opening viewing figures since 2011.

He said: “I’d urge everyone to watch tonight’s show as it is really funny.

“I’m also looking forward to reading the article in the Comet!”

Today Scott has been with Aisha Kasim – who was given the chop on last Thursday’s show – at The British Invention Show and Awards at the Barbican Exhibition Centre, the same venue which saw his Apprentice team Versatile learn about their cactus-based challenge.

Scott, who went to Fearnhill School in Letchworth and lived in Ickleford before moving Stevenage, triumphed despite fluffing his lines during his presentation in week two, leaving him to admit to Lord Sugar: “It wasn’t the best pitch I’ve ever done”.

Speaking afterwards to the Comet, he explained: “I was watching the show with my friends and they all went quiet! My pitch was a bit of a nightmare, but everyone was really supportive.

“I’m now getting people start to recognise me which is surreal – but it’s all good fun.

“I was in a bar the other day in London and there was a group of girls on the next table and I could hear them say to each other: ‘That’s the bloke off The Apprentice’, and another said: ‘No it isn’t, it can’t be him!’

“The response from everyone in and around North Herts, including Hitchin and Stevenage, has been great. People have been really getting behind me which is nice of them.”
