Ebene News – GB – Alan Sugar’s sister dies of Covid two weeks after her brother

Alan Sugar’s sister died of Covid, two weeks after the host apprentice’s brother also died of the disease

The 73-year-old businessman paid tribute to his older sister, Shirley Regal, on social media, claiming she died on Monday at the age of 88

“She had been ill for a while, but I guess Covid finally got her to join our brother Derek, who passed away two weeks ago RIP SHIRL,” he wrote on Twitter He added on Instagram : “I guess another victim of Covid”

On December 15, Lord Sugar announced that his brother had died from coronavirus, describing it as “a sad day for all of us in the family”

He tweeted: “Today I lost my long-suffering brother Derek, another victim of Covid, which made his underlying health problems worse

“He’s always been a passionate Spurs fan. I never forget my sister-in-law who jokes with me, thanks me for buying him the club”

In September, Sugar condemned “unfair” criticism of the government’s handling of the pandemic, saying Chancellor Rishi Sunak had done a “good job under the circumstances”

“I think the Chancellor has done very well in general, and I say that as a person who is not exactly a supporter of the government,” he told PA Media “A lot of people have said how expensive it cost and gave them stick, but I think it’s unfair to be honest “

However, he said the government should demand that office workers return to work to “support the City [of London], support the economy”

“The city is suffering because there are no workers there, so until they really push to attract more people there, it will continue to look like a ghost town”

This year’s The Apprentice series, in which Sugar judges promising entrepreneurs facing business challenges, has been postponed by the BBC due to Covid-19

“We can’t send people around the world for chores, or go out on the streets selling things. It’s a shame, but it had to happen,” he said at the time
