Thamesmead-born Apprentice winner Stella English has lost her claim of constructive dismissal against Alan Sugar, it was revealed today.
The former Bexley College student was suing Lord Sugar at East London Tribunal Service after quitting her £100,000-a-year job at his Viglen company, complaining she was nothing more than an “overpaid lackey.”
The 34-year-old won the 2010 series of the BBC One television show but she claimed her role with the IT division of Lord Sugar’s business was nothing more than a “sham” and a “PR construct.”
The tribunal heard the case last month but decided in the millionaire businessman’s favour.
