But one lady who is still getting Nick Hewer's expressions coming her way is Countdown star Rachel Riley.

We caught up with the maths whiz and she told us exclusively that Lord Sugar's right-hand-man Nick - who these days hosts Channel 4 show Countdown is ALWAYS raising his eyebrow at her.

She said: "Oh yeah [he always raises his eyebrow]. Anything I say kind of near the line. We're speaking a different language."

And Rachel told us that neither Nick nor Margaret - who made a special guest appearance on the show - are as intimidating as they come across on our screens on The Apprentice.

She said: "We didn't get too much gossip out of [Margaret] but she's lovely. They're not as scary in real life. Nick can be to the contestants.

"He's really impressed by the young ones. How entrepreneurial they are."

Rachel is getting married this summer and told us that she's using her maths skills to make sure her big day doesn't break the bank.

She said: "I'm planning my wedding at the moment so it's about not blowing the budget."

Giving her tips for personal finance (we're RUBBISH at saving) she said: "It's about budgeting. Working out how much things cost before you sign up to it. Working out all the overheads."

Rachel Riley is the face of Zipcar's 'Campaign Against Urbanitis', developed to help Londoners solve the financial gains to be made by switching their car for a Zipcar-calculating a savings of £3,162 per year.
