You’re Burgled: What Alan Sugar’s Apprentice Did Next

But news is that the 27-year-old’s wealthy grandfather had been tied up and robbed at his home. Ambrose Jnr is “in shock”, according to the Mail.

Wealthy jeweller Percy Ambrose, 83, who runs the ‘Frocks n Rocks’ boutique at Frinton-on-Sea, Essex, with his wife Naomi Collins-Ambrose, had been sleeping when two men forced their way into his plush home.

Says Percy: “When I woke up I was confronted by two hooded men. I thought I was dreaming. They filled up five enormous bags with paintings and jewellery.”

Dearest Simon, who is, according to the Mail, “very close” to his grandfather, is currently eschewing the high-life in order to comfort the old man.

But the diamond merchant hasn’t lost his bottle. Says the posh pensioner: “This is the fourth time I have been robbed. I have had a gun put up my nose three times. I am getting used to it.”

Maybe he should get better security so he won’t have to ‘get used to it’ again?
