The Apprentice host, who is a keen pilot himself, was in a borrowed business jet on his way back to London when an emergency was declared at 41,000.

The plane was forced to land and Lord Sugar was left to make his own way home from Connecticut, where he's currently waiting to be collected by another aircraft to take him home.

Taking to Twitter to grumble about the incident, Suggs wrote: "On my way back to London in a Legacy 650 (not my one I did owner a favour, lent him my one - long story) anyway at 41,000 ft we dec[l]are a emergency and have to land.

"Now stuck in Connecticut waiting for a plane to get me home. The irony of doing a favour."

He didn't go into detail about the emergency incident that grounded the plane, but his Twitter followers were less than impressed by Lord Sugar's "first world problem".

"I have the same problem sometimes in my Ford Fiesta. Stuck in the motorway services. Oh how our lives are so similar," one told him.

"Feel for you mate in your private jet," said another.

A third wrote: "Aah millionaire problems."

His mid-air woes came after Mirror columnist and former Apprentice candidate Karthik Nagesan spilled the beans on behind-the-scenes secrets.

Karthik, who starred in Celebrity Big Brother this year, hinted that the decision to fire a candidate each week isn't solely Lord Sugar's - it comes down to what the producers think, too.

"We need big characters to make good TV at the end of the day," he wrote in his exclusive column.

"I see that Clark Kent wannabe Andrew got a mention during the treat at the end, and he nearly got fired the week before. Is that a sign he's lined up for the chop soon?

"I remember the additional screen time the editors graciously gave me during the end of my penultimate episode. #SpotAPattern," Karthik added, ominously.
