FORMER winner of The Apprentice Ricky Martin has returned to the show.
Ricky, originally from Stubbington, appeared on the show tonight to grill candidates in the semi-final of the series.
He won the show in 2012.
Ricky grilled the candidates on their experience in the world of business.
Solomon Akhtar, 22, was one of three fired in the semi-finals, along with Roisin Hogan, 32, and Daniel Lassman, 27.
Speaking about being back on the show, Ricky said: ‘As soon as I looked into the first candidate’s eyes I felt an instant empathy. All my own old feelings came back as I remembered how tough this process really is.
‘At this stage, you are highly strung and exhausted. The process is even more intense than it appears on screen.’
