The Norfolk-born owner of a pest control business scurried away from the famous boardroom this week as he was fired from The Apprentice. 

Mark Moseley was fired by Lord Sugar on Thursday night's episode of the hit BBC One show, which sees entrepreneurs battle it out for a £250,000 investment. 

He attended Reepham High School from 1994 to 1999 and then worked as a combat engineer in the British Army and later as an electrician at RAF Marham.

He now lives in East Dulwich in south-east London and runs the business PestGone Environmental Ltd.

On episode eight of the series, the candidates were tasked with hosting immersive events in Shropshire.

Lord Sugar said to Mark: "It’s never happened before to me in this process where the teams haven’t even kicked off yet and they’re already in the red. So, it is with regret, Mark, that you’re fired.”

Speaking to BBC Radio Norfolk following the firing, he said: "I'm going to be coming back to Norfolk soon to see my family and friends and for a night out.

"I hope you saw me wearing the yellow tie in Dubai which was a shout-out to you guys and I also mentioned Norfolk in the boardroom."
