Lord Sugar: Apprentice may kill itself off if I was replaced

OHMYGOSSIP — Lord Sugar thinks ‘The Apprentice’ would “kill itself off” if he was replaced.
The 75-year-old businessman has fronted all 17 series of the BBC show, but he “can’t think of anybody” who could sufficiently replace him on the programme.
He told The Sun newspaper: “I don’t want to sound too big-headed but a lot of people underestimate me.
“They hear me talking like a cockney, but I know everything, I really do.
“I’m not degrading people like (‘Drag­­ons’ Den’ star) Peter Jones, because they’ve done a lot also.
“But none of them have done as much as I have.
“Who would I put in my place? I can’t think of anybody. There’s loads of people that would queue up.”
Lord Sugar has previously hinted he may exit the show’s boardroom after a 20th series, but now admits he could do another 25 years of the show when he is into his 100th year.
He said: “There’s no reason why I can’t go on to do 25 years. I’m very fit, so I don’t know whether it stops at 20. But if I ever did stop, I get a feeling the BBC wouldn’t stop it.
“I think they would try to find someone new to do it and that’s where it may kill itself off.”
The star thinks the only way the show could go on after him is if the series was rested for 10 years.
He added: “When Donald Trump gave up his one in the US they got Arnold Schwarzenegger to do it.
“But he was pathetic – and Trump was bad enough. It really destroyed the format.
“If it was up to me, I think it should be, ‘Thank you very much, it’s been great, but maybe in 10 years’ time we’ll bring it back’. like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, but with different characters hosting.”
In January, Lord Sugar insisted the only way he would leave ‘The Apprentice’ is “in a coffin”.
He said: “If I was to finish, 20 years would be much nicer. Of course, that decision is not mine. The BBC would have to make it.
“But I’d certainly be prepared to do it at least to the 20th and if I feel fit and happy, there’s no reason why I can’t just carry on until they take me out of the boardroom in a coffin.”
