Apprentice star Solomon Akhtar wants new reality role

By Albertina Lloyd

The Apprentice candidate Solomon Akhtar has admitted he may have tried the wrong reality TV show, and is now considering Made In Chelsea, after he was fired by Lord Sugar in the interview round.

The 22-year-old technology entrepreneur - the youngest candidate to ever compete in the BBC show - was one of three fired in the semi-finals, along with Roisin Hogan and Daniel Lassman.

Akhta got the boot after submitting an eight-page business plan that was padded out with pictures.

But he shrugged off the failure as he branded Lord Sugar boring and confessed his main aim in life was to have fun.

He said: "I think I was too ambitious for Lord Sugar and too outgoing. He's not a fun person."
