The Apprentice's Lee McQueen is unrecognisable with a huge beard 15 years after winning show | The Sun

THE Apprentice star Lee McQueen looks very different 15 years after winning the BBC One show.

The entrepreneur and winner of series four of the business reality programme stunned fans with his handsome good looks in recent snaps.

Lee showcased his noticeably bushy beard, looking very different to his clean-shaven appearance on the hit show over a decade ago.

The former TV star, 44, became one of the most memorable contestants after he was caught lying on his CV about the amount of time spent at university, when in fact he had dropped out after four months.

He also baffled fans with his impression of a "reverse pterodactyl" during the final interview stage and left fans in hysterics with his catchphrase "that's what I'm talking about!".

Fast forward 15 years later and the businessman is now married and lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and three daughters.

The TV star regularly gives fans a glimpse inside his busy family life, which includes luxury holidays and his support for Tottenham Hotspur where he often appears on Spurs YouTube fan channels as a guest.

After his success on the show, Lee revealed that he'd become a sex symbol for women and men.

"I have had some very naughty offers sent to me. Some have been very explicit from girls telling me what they'd like to do to me in the bedroom," he told the Standard.

"Fair play to them! I don't think Nicole will be very pleased though."

"I've had letters from gay blokes. One guy said he didn't care if I won – he just wanted to spend some time with me. I'll probably give that a miss."

Lee, a recruitment sales manager with eight GCSEs and a BTEC Diploma, managed to beat competitor Claire Young after a final task in which they had to develop and then market a new men’s fragrance.

Lee worked for Sir Alan Sugar’s Amshold company as a development director, developing Amscreen-branded digital display advertising products for the outdoor market.

After two years in the role, Lee revealed that he was leaving to set up Raw Talent Academy to encourage organisations to look beyond university graduates for new talent.

At the time he said "Having gained a huge amount of experience in my role at Amscreen, I felt now was the right time to start up on my own".
