Lord Sugar wants King Charles to appear on 'The Apprentice'.

The 74-year-old businessman has ruled out the possibility of shooting an all-star series, but Lord Sugar would love to get the 75-year-old monarch on the BBC show.

Quizzed about the possibility of creating an all-star series, Lord Sugar told Express.co.uk: "Yeah, it's a very, very good question. And it has been raised before. The thing is it doesn't create the jeopardy that's needed.

"I think what we would like to do, and what I would like to do, and of course the decision lies firmly with the BBC, is that we have another series coming up, obviously series 19. And then they need to do something very, very special for the 20th year of 'The Apprentice'.

"Oh, you never know. I might invite the King to come along."

The outspoken businessman added that previous contestants, like Saira Khan, might be "too old" to return to 'The Apprentice'.

He said: "Well, the problem is you might find that if you go back 18 years ... Saira Khan lost the title to Tim [Campbell]. Uh, dare I say, and she'll bite my head off for this, she might be a bit too old now."

Meanwhile, Lord Sugar recently teased the new series of 'The Apprentice', suggesting that the contestants are better than ever.

He said: "I think it's probably the most highly qualified set of candidates we've ever had. Pharmacist, dentist, some already successful business owners.

"I think from that point of view, the standard is really very high, but with high standard and high achievers comes high ego!

"They think they're really, really, really, really good. And like most entrepreneurs and highly successful people, they often think they're the best in the room, and working as a team can prove very challenging for some people."
