Dragons' Den judge Duncan Bannatyne has criticised Sir Alan Sugar for employing Apprentice winner Lee McQueen.

The Scottish entrepreneur, speaking at the Silver Clef music awards in London, said he would never give a job to someone who had lied on their CV.

"I'm absolutely disgusted that Alan Sugar employed somebody who lied on his CV and sent that message out," he said.

New Dragons' Den

The 59-year-old also thinks that the latest series of Dragons' Den, which starts on BBC Two on 21 July, is the best one they've ever recorded.

He's revealed it starts with two amazing investments in the first episode.

Duncan Bannatyne said: "They're both quite shocking. In both cases the entrepreneur has a choice of dragon and the dragons compete with each other for the investment and it's a bit of surprise who gets the investment."
