Alan Sugar twitter feud Lewis Apprentice

The Apprentice winner has rocky start after Lord Sugar calls her out for Twitter blunder

It's a bit awkward...

Sian Gabbidon may have beaten the competition to be crowned the winner of The Apprentice, but she’s already faced the wrath of new boss Lord Alan Sugar.

The 25-year-old had a rocky start to her partnership with the businessman after he called her out for using the wrong Twitter handle when tagging him on social media after her win.

The now deleted tweet featured the wrong Twitter account for Lord Sugar, which meant the 71-year-old businessman was not receiving her comments.

Lord Sugar then unapologetically tweeted the swimwear entrepreneur: “Sian you are using the wrong Twitter handle for me it’s @lord_sugar.”

Sian quickly updated her tweet, writing: “I DID IT… &what an absolute rollercoaster it’s been, overwhelmed and still can’t believe it – I’m ready and excited to start the journey with @Lord_Sugar”.

Fans saw the funny side and commented to Sian, who beat wannabe nut milk mogul Camilla Ainsworth to the £250,000 investment.

One joked: “Great start Sian! Fired,” while another wrote: “Fantastic start to the wrong investment.”

Before the final, Sian admitted that she knew she had to be ruthless to win.

She said: “I didn’t come in to make friends, I came in it to win and there was no way I was gonna think, ‘Oh I don’t wanna offend anyone’, I was like, ‘This is what I have to do’ and I do believe that you have to be a bit ruthless sometime.”

“And I did believe that when I was talking to Lord Sugar I wanted him to see that everything I’ve done was on my own.

“I’ve spent two years of my life working on this business and putting everything into it and I wanted that to come across.”
