    Lord Sugar has won an employment tribunal case brought against him by Apprentice winner Stella English.

    Mrs English, who secured a job with Lord Sugar after competing in the popular BBC programme in 2010, brought a case of constructive dismissal earlier this year.

    Kent-based Mrs English, 34, earned £100,000 a year working at Lord Sugar’s IT firm, Viglen. She complained about her lack of specific duties and desk-based job. She resigned from Viglen in May 2011 because , she said, she felt like an “overpaid lackey”.

    In a witness statement, read to the hearing at the East London Tribunal Centre, Lord Sugar said: "I believe this claim, together with its publication in the media, is simply an attempt to extract money from me."

    After the ruling, he took to Twitter and attacked the “claim culture” in the UK.
