A former The Apprentice contestant may face a £200k legal bill after a legal row with a neighbour over a hole between his home and theirs.

Alexander Britez, who was on the seventh series of Alan Sugar's entrepreneur reality show, lost a court battle sparked after his neighbour’s stepfather fell into the trench.
