Tim, a newcomer to The Apprentice, gives an update on Claude Littner’s health.
Tim Campbell, who plays Lord Alan Sugar’s long-time aide Claude Littner on THE APPRENTICE, has provided an update on his health following a horrific cycling accident that forced him to leave the new series.
The Apprentice returns to BBC One with a brand-new cast of cocky hopefuls vying to be Lord Alan Sugar’s next business partner.
Rather than being joined by Claude Littner as Lord Sugar’s aides, Baroness Karren Brady will be advising the business guru with former Apprentice winner Tim, who had to miss out due to a serious cycling accident.
Tim, Claude’s temporary replacement, provided an update on Claude’s health on GB News ahead of the new series’ premiere.
After suffering a horrific injury in a cycling accident in April, Claude will be absent from the 16th series of the popular BBC One business show.
After falling off an electric bike, the 72-year-old had nine surgeries and is now learning to walk again after doctors thought he’d have to amputate his injured leg.
Tim, who was the show’s first-ever winner back in 2005, has replaced the business executive on the most recent season of The Apprentice.
Tim was invited onto Thursday’s episode of GB News to discuss his return to the cutthroat boardroom after winning the show and joining Lord Sugar’s company Amstrad on a £100,000 salary.

Eammon Holmes and Isabel Webster received an update on Claude’s recovery from the businessman, who went on to found his own digital marketing agency.
“It’s wonderful to hear that Claude is on the mend,” Tim said. “Many blessings to you, Claude, and a Happy New Year.”
“All of the candidates were attempting to impress Lord Sugar, and our roles as advisors were simply to ensure that we could relay the information to Lord Sugar so that he could make the final decision,” he continued.
“We all know about that magical finger, and I can’t even put it up because it’s against the rules, but we all know about it.”
Isabel inquired if seeing the contestants under “unbelievable stress” reminds him of his own experience on the first season.
“It’s about the stress and, as was said, having,” he replied.
