There is so much more to Nick Hewer than sitting at the right (or left) hand of Lord Sugar on the long-running TV series The Apprentice. For a start there is his association with Ireland. He went to school at Clongowes Wood College and would have gone on to Trinity College had his parents been able to afford the fees. His relationship with Sugar began in 1983 when he was taken on as the Amstrad boss’s PR consultant. When The Apprentice began he thought it might be a good idea to accept Sugar’s offer to take part in the show as an adviser. He did the job for ten years and then it was time to move on. Since 2012 he has been the presenter of the long-running Channel Four quiz show Countdown. Lord Sugar’s response to Nick’s autobiography My Alphabet: A Life From A To Z was: “I always knew he was quite creative, but I had no idea he was so reckless”. Nick will be in conversation with broadcaster Gerry Foley.
