Sweet and low down

Sir Alan Sugar might have power and wealth but Tulkinghorn wonders why he never seems to be happy. It might be because he has to contend with three lawyers on the new series of The Apprentice.

One of them is already known to Tulkinghorn. Shazia Wahab, who successfully sued Allen & Overy (A&O) for victimisation five years ago, will be appearing on the show. She describes herself as “a stubborn cow who wants to have the last word”. A&O may want to vouch for that.

Trainee barristers Nicholas De Lacy-Brown and Sarah Dhada make up the lawyerly trio. Well, at least until De Lacy Brown was fired last week. And then there were two.
