RUGBY School boy Harry Maxwell was hauled into the boardroom to face Alan Sugar in this week’s episode of the Young Apprentice.

But the teenager avoided being fired by Lord Sugar, despite being named by his team leader Lewis Roman as being one of the people responsible for the team of boys losing the weekly task against the girls.

In week two of the BBC1 series, which attracts millions of views, the young entrepreneurs were asked to come up with a new product for the parent and baby market.

Harry and his fellow contestants designed a bottle warmer in the shape of a cartoon but lost the task.

Despite Harry being partly blamed for the failure, he survived for another week when Lord Sugar fired Ben Fowler.

Harry, 16, who boards at Rugby School and lives in nearby Brixworth, is battling it out to win a prize from Lord Sugar worth £25,000.

Earlier this week Harry was pictured in a national newspaper apparently drinking from a bottle of £1,000 Dom Perignon champagne as he partied in London nightclub Mahiki last week.

He was also photographed kissing various girls on the night out.

The entire series of Young Apprentice has been pre-recorded but the outcome will not be revealed until the final episode.

Next week the candidates will set up rival florists.
