Murder shock for Apprentice's Laura

Apprentice reject Laura Hogg has spoken of the moment when she heard the father of her child had been murdered while she was filming the hit show.

The Glaswegian bridal shop owner said it was the "the worst moment" of her life when a member of staff on the BBC show took her aside to tell her that former boyfriend Chris Lindsay had been attacked in Spain. Mr Lindsay, the father of her four-year-old son Reece, died of his injuries.

Laura told The Sun she was "in an absolute state of shock" when producers took her aside during the recording last October.

The 28-year-old said: "I went back to the house after the task. No one knew what had happened. I don't even know if Lord Sugar knows.

"I was acting as normally as I could but deep down I was upset as hell. My mental state was all over the place. In those situations you usually want to have a glass of wine with your pals and get it out.

"I shared a room with my fellow contestant Jade and it eventually came out.

"The next day we were full-pelt continuing with the task but by lunchtime it hit me and I just felt sick.

"I got through the afternoon but as soon as the cameras stopped at 5pm, I burst into tears."

Viewers saw Laura booted off the show this week after the contestants were challenged by Lord Sugar to sell modern art.
