So you've heard the sad news about Nick Hewer.
That's right – he is leaving The Apprentice.
Speaking as an Apprentice fan, this news is a crushing blow. The doom-mongers who have been saying that the show won't be good again are right. It really won't be. He was more important than Lord Sugar, the candidates, and the man whose narration is pretending that it's a serious programme about business. Everything.
1. Why? Well let's start with his powerful face.
The Apprentice is 78% about Nick Hewer's face. Every key moment in the show's history has been based around his facial expression or his reaction to something that has happened. His face is literally a moral compass for how well his team are doing. You could mute the show and still know everything just from his face.
