‘Apprentice’ duo Margaret Mountford and Nick Hewer are to be reunited on ‘Countdown’, it has been confirmed.
The pair were Lord Sugar’s right hand people on ‘The Apprentice’ for five years before Margaret departed to focus on her Ph.D, making way for Karren Brady to replace her.
Earlier this year Nick Hewer replaced Jeff Stelling as host of the popular tea ime show on Channel 4, boosting ratings in the process.

Co-presenter Rachel Riley also tweeted about the news saying, "We're filming Countdown this weekend with Margaret Mountford. Hoping to get the insider gossip on Nick Hewer.... what would you ask?"
Her appearance will be seen on Channel 4 later this year.
