Gordon Brown to hire Sir Alan Sugar?

    Rumours are sweeping Westminster that Sir Alan Sugar could be set for a job in Gordon Brown's administration. But it is unknown whether he shouted his famous catchphrase, "You're fired", at the beleaguered PM.

    Sir Alan, a member of the Business Council for Britain, slipped in to Downing Street earlier on Thursday.

    Mr Brown is trying to piece together a new Cabinet and strengthen his grip on power after four ministers signalled their departures ahead of the elections.

    He is also facing a backbench revolt as Labour MPs circulated among themselves an email urging him to quit.

    Sir Alan last night fired three of his would-be business apprentices, whittling down the contest to two hopefuls for Sunday's final - Kate Walsh and Yasmina Siadatan - after James McQuillan, Lorraine Tighe and Debra Barr all got the boot.

    Businessman and 'Apprentice' star Sir Alan Sugar is set to receive a peerage as part of a new enterprise role in Gordon Brown's Government.

    The multi-millionaire, who was spotted arriving for talks with the Prime Minister this week, is expected to be given a seat in the House of Lords as part of the Cabinet reshuffle.

    A spokesman for Sir Alan refused to comment on the move but details of the appointment are believed to have been ironed out in Downing Street on Thursday.
