Chesterfield’s Apprentice star James Hill is today splashed across the front page of The Sun.
The national newspaper claims the 26-year-old is a “convicted thug who bit a man’s ear and left another scarred for life”.
The Sun refers to two court cases.
According to the newspaper, James’s spokesman said: “He was young and irresponsible. He very much regrets his actions.”
James is competing against 19 other businessmen and women in the hit BBC show in a bid to land a top job with Lord Alan Sugar.
