Lord Sugar visits Isle of Wight

Lord Sugar has taken a brief Isle of Wight holiday in order to have lunch on the island.

The star of the popular BBC television show The Apprentice travelled to the Isle of Wight in his £150,000 Cirrus private plane, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

According to the local news provider, the business tycoon headed to Bembridge on the island for a meal at the nearby Propeller Inn.

Lord Sugar is thought to be worth as much as £770 million from companies such as Amstrad and last year he was invited to act as an adviser to the Labour government.

The newspaper added: "Lord Sugar is a keen pilot and regularly takes to the skies at weekends."

Lord Sugar, who has nearly 600,000 followers on the microblogging website Twitter, wrote on his page that he was heading to the Isle of Wight "for a cuppa and sarnie with a couple of mates".
