AN Apprentice star who was fired by Lord Alan Sugar is now making mega money thanks to his insurance firm.
Alex Mills was just 22 when he appeared on the show back in 2013, when he became an unlikely fan favourite thanks to his unforgettable eyebrows.
Sadly, the businessman, now 30, was promptly fired by Lord Sugar after a disastrous sales pitch for a horror-themed ready meal.
But the entrepreneur has had the last laugh as he's just been named one of the highest-earning young people in the UK.
His insurance firm Dynamo Cover employs 30 people in Barry, South Wales, and is already worth £16million.
The former contestant is so successful that he even drives a flashy red Ferrari 488.
Despite being rejected by Lord Sugar, Alex proved he still has a sense of humour – and even used a Lord Sugar lookalike in TV ads for his insurance firm.
Alex made it down to the last seven candidates of the reality show back in 2013 before being painfully sacked by an unimpressed Sugar after failing to impress him on one particular task.
The BBC tycoon told him at the time: "Alex, I think you’re a young, enthusiastic chap and I want to send you off with a bit of advice.
"Stick at something – you are going to succeed."
And it looks as though Alex took the advice to heart – and his business is now absolutely thriving, turning over millions each year.
Alex initially ran a company making gravestones before switching to insurance – and hasn't looked back since.
The former contestant also took a cheeky swipe at Lord Sugar, saying: "He isn’t having half my business for 250 grand now."
Alex joins a whole host of successful youngsters on the Under 30 rich list, including celebrities, footballers but business owners.
The Duke of Westminster tops the list though with an estimated fortune of £10.054billion.
Little Mix stars Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 29, Jade Thirlwall, 28, and Perrie Edwards, 27 also topped the list with a staggering net worth up to £54million.
The band has made their fortune through their sixth EP Confetti, brand deals with Pretty Little Thing and five concert tours in the last decade.
It comes after The Sun revealed that former band mate Jesy Nelson had financially cut all ties with the group – meaning she won't receive a penny from their upcoming tour next spring.
