Apprentice finalist Alex Wotherspoon is turning his back on the business world to pursue a career in modeling.

After being rejected for the £100,000 job with Sir Alan Sugar on the hit BBC1 show, Alex has decided to make the most of his boyish good looks.

Talking to heat magazine, he said: “I didn’t get the job, so I thought I might as well use what I’ve got. So, I went to see Models One, one of the top modeling agencies in London. I saw the head of the men’s division, and it was brilliant!

He added: “They’re putting out the feelers with Thomas Pink, Paul Smith and M&S. They said I’m a bit taller than your usual model, but because I have the profile they’re interested in me. I’m definitely going down that route now.”

Alex’s dream is to model for Armani like David Beckham. He said: “I’d get my pants off, but only if they money was right. I’d probably do topless for £10,000… If it’s good enough for David Beckham, eh?

But he admitted he needs to work out a bit before that happens.

“I do need to buff up a bit first, though. I’ve been going to the gym quite a bit – I have a personal trainer. You know Brad Pitt’s look in Fight Club? That’s what I want to look like.”
