Apprentice's Alex swaps suit and tie for board shorts on romantic getaway with girlfriend

Apprentice contestant Alex Wotherspoon swapped business for pleasure on a luxury holiday in Majorca with his girlfriend Hannah Robinson.

The 25-year-old looked rather thrilled to have traded the boardroom for the beach as he strolled hand in hand with his bikini-clad companion at the Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort.

The pair weren't shy about putting their affection on show, smothering each other with kisses as they frolicked in the water.

Alex, who came in joint third place with Helene Speight in the final of the BBC show earlier this month, became as famous for his pout as his sales prowess during the show and recently signed up to a modelling agency.

He explained: 'I didn’t get the job, so I thought I might as well use what I’ve got.

'So I went to see Models One. I saw the head of the men’s division, and it was brilliant!

'I was sat in reception with all these good-looking guys going past me and I was like, “S***”. They were pretty amazing looking.

'They’re putting out the feelers with Thomas Pink, Paul Smith and M&S.

'They said that I’m a bit taller than your usual model, but because I have the profile they’re interested in me. I’m definitely going down that route now.'

The former regional sales manager remains as ambitious as ever, and has set his sights on following in David Beckham's footsteps with a campaign for Italian designer Armani.

But he admits it might take a bit of work.

He says: 'I do need to buff up a bit. I’ve been going to the gym quite a bit - I have a personal trainer.

'You know Brad Pitt's look in Fight Club? That’s what I want to look like.'
