The Apprentice boss was diverted to America
THE Apprentice’s Lord Alan Sugar might well miss watching his own show tonight after a private jet in which he was travelling was forced to make a terrifying emergency landing in America.
The business guru was 41,000ft in the sky when he received the nail-biting news which saw the aircraft immediately touch down in Connecticut, instead of London.
Letting slip his nightmare commute Lord Sugar took to Twitter to re-tell his horror – and insist he was not travelling in his own private jet at the time.
He wrote: “On my way back to London in a Legacy 650 ( not my one I did owner a favour, lent him my one – long story)
“Anyway at 41,000 ft we declare a emergency and have to land.
“Now stuck in Connecticut waiting for a plane to get me home. The irony of doing a favour.”
The Apprentice head honcho was alerted to the drama at 41,000ft
The private jet in which he was travelling was then diverted to America instead of continuing to London
One witty fan responded: “You’ll be late for the boardroom tonight to fire one of the chicken nuggets,” as another joked: “This tweet is the definition of privilege 😂 “i have to wait now on a plane to take me home…” God love ye. Try Ryanair . 😂”
A third heaped on the sarcasm to post: “I missed my bus the other week” as another remarked: “That’s what my sister in law describes as a ‘first world problem’.”
A Twitter fan then wrote: “EasyJet Edinburgh to Stansted was on time today. Xmas miracles all round gaffer.”
In 2016, The Sunday Times Rich List estimated Lord Sugar’s net worth at £1.15billion. This makes him the 95th richest person in the UK – so no wonder he can afford to take to the skies in style.
Alan, 70, will be back on screen in tonight’s episode of BBC show The Apprentice.
