Lord Sugar must be kicking himself right now for having let gorgeous Apprentice candidate Sam Curry slip through his fingers!

Why? Because the handsome tutor has teamed up with his fellow candidate Elle Stevenson to write a kids book called Gobble Gruff – just as they did in one of the tasks on the show (remember Snottydink?)

According to the blurb, the book is about a chap who’s part ogre, part chicken, an oversized beast who lives in a magical forest surrounded by friends and family who are a fraction of his size. Inspired by the great works of Beatrix Potter, Kenneth Grahame and Aesop’s Fables, Gobble Gruff conveys a strong message about the importance of acceptance at Christmas. Awww, we feel all warm inside.

Although he is now an author, Sam is still beavering away at his tutoring business. ‘My company Scholarly Tutoring offers one-to-one teaching and mentoring tailored to needs of our pupils and clients. Our tutors all come from Russell Group universities and work with students throughout London, the UK and internationally. I also work professionally as an actor; I’ve got two productions coming up in the New Year, one in February and one later in the year.’

Can’t wait for the follow up, Sam!
