What businesses has he owned?

The business mogul has earned his money through a string of business ventures, most notably founding Amstrad, a computer and electronics company, in 1968.

At the height of its success, Amstrad alone was worth an estimated £1.2billion, however it was sold in 2007 to BSKYB for £125million.

On top of this, he runs Amsprop alongside his son, Daniel Sugar, who acts as MD for Amsprop Estates.

The company invests in commercial property across London and Essex, and has since sold on some of their portfolio to other investors for a significant profit.

In 2015, the firm sold Burberry's Haymarket flagship store location on for more than double the price – cashing in a £65million cheque on a property that cost them £31.5million.

When was Lord Sugar chairman of Tottenham Hotspur FC?

Lord Sugar was chairman of Tottenham Hotspur from 1991 to 2001.

An avid supporter of the team, Sugar teamed up with Terry Venables to buy the club to help bail it out of financial troubles.

However, two years later Sugar sacked Venables and later won a legal battle against him when the former footballer appealed to the high courts.

The move was unpopular among fans, who felt he was treating the club as a business rather than a passion project.

In 2001, he sold his majority stake of his shares for an estimated £22million, before selling the rest six years later for £25million.

He branded his sixteen-year investment in the club as a "waste of his life".
