Tough-talking: Claude Littner

Lord Sugar's new sidekick on The Apprentice has been announced - Claude Littner, the straight-talking executive famous for crushing candidates' egos during the interview rounds of the show.

The 65-year-old business executive replaces PR guru Nick Hewer, who quit after a decade.

He will join Baroness Karren Brady as an adviser, following candidates in each task and reporting back to Lord Sugar in the boardroom, on their progress. Littner has become famous for his ruthless put-downs. He warned: "If the candidates think I am soft and fluffy, they haven't been watching me on The Apprentice over the past decade.

"I'm ready, and this won't be a walk in the park!"
