Tim Campbell hits back at The Apprentice stars after string of swipes at Lord Sugar | The Sun

TIM Campbell has hit back at The Apprentice stars after a string of swipes at Lord Sugar.

The hit BBC show has produced 16 winners since it began in 2005, with Tim being the first to triumph.

However, some former winners – as well as candidates who were fired by Lord Sugar – have gone on to criticise the 75-year-old for one reason or another.

Most recently, Amy Anzel – who competed on the most recent series of The Apprentice – claimed Lord Sugar picked on her, while Tim, 45, and Baroness Karen Brady had "obvious favourites".

However, Tim has nothing but good things to say about his former boss, and in an exclusive chat with The Sun Online, hit out at those who had taken nasty swipes at the businessman.

Tim, who returned to the show as an advisor to stand in for Claude Littner during the most recent series, said: "My experience is unique to the relationship I've had with him.

"And I'm really lucky that the way that we've always worked together has been positive and worked out.

"But relationships are relationship and people are people, not everybody's supposed to get on, not everyone's supposed to be harmonious.

"I think what every contestant would hopefully agree is that they have benefited from going through the process because whether it's the profile, it's profit, or it's a new partner or whatever it is, some positive has come out of the other side.

"So I know that my life was markedly better as a result. And I think most people, probably barring one actual case, I think most people would say that their lives had been enhanced or better as a result of it."

Tim loved being back on the show, but admitted he wasn't returning for the next series as thankfully Claude, 73, is fit and well again following his horror accident last year which ruled him out of the 2022 series.

Instead, Tim is focusing on his latest education campaign around T-Levels.

Tim is a T-Level champion and is now part of 'The T-Team' – a group that is on a mission to raise awareness and highlight the benefits of T-levels; a new qualification designed with employers that combines both work and classroom study, and is equivalent to three A-levels.

As children across the country deal with GCSE results day today, Tim spoke about his excitement at being part of something new in the education sector that offers youngsters more options regarding their future careers.

He said: "I think what the beauty of T-levels does for me is that it combines an individual choice around a passion that you might have or an inkling towards an industry sector.

"So that can be something as probably more traditional like accounting, or now more nouveau like digital skills with some of the more traditional or perceived as vocational ends like healthcare, or construction.

"I think that's a really important platform to give a young person, where they can be slightly more relaxed about where their next choice is going to lead them.

"And we know from our research with The Gatsby Foundation that if you take a T-level, you still have all of those options open to you afterwards.

"Because you can still go to university if you choose to. You can still go into the world of work if you don't want to do any more academia, or you can go and take an apprenticeship."
