One star of BBC business show The Apprentice made waves as he was caught bragging about his huge manhood on Twitter.
Pillow salesman Thomas Skinner appeared on series 15 of the programme back in 2019, making it through to week nine before he was fired and lost the potential for a £250,000 investment from Lord Sugar.
Now the TV star keeps fans entertained on social media – but he caused ripples by catching a black cab all the way from London to Manchester.

In response to the backlash, Tom penned: “Why are people getting angry that I took a black cab to Manchester and back?
“I didn’t fancy sticking the miles on me Rolls Royce, my wife was using the new Q8 I bought her for Chrismtas, my RS5 is only for short journeys and I didn’t fancy doing it in one of my vans [laughing emoji].”
One irate fan, however, fumed: “Should have got the train. Cheaper. Quicker. Better for the environment and most importantly no need for your unnecessary bragging about how considerably richer you are than many of your followers. Win win win win.”
But Thomas wasn’t having any of it as he cheekily replied: “I’ve also got a MASSIVE John Dory as well.”
His followers were divided by his response, with some in hysterics and others branding him “insecure”.
One fan giggled: “No need to boast about the size of your John Dory. Some of us manage just fine with regular sized ones!” as someone else posted: “Hahahaha class reply Tom, love it.”
Someone else reassured him: “Haters gonna hate! I’d have gone train, you can stretch your legs a bit. But I don’t have your money (and you’ve earned your money to spend how you like. Good for you!)”
But one social media user hit out: “What a very insecure man… odd behaviour.”
Tom has always been open about his love of fast cars, and in July 2021 celebrated being able to afford a brand new Audi RS5.

Posing alongside the sleek black motor, Tom looked chuffed as he told fans: “We all like to live it large every now and then. Only a few years ago I was driving old spunky £500 vans, yesterday I bought myself a brand new Audi RS5.
“Honestly hard work and dedication, not giving up and having good people around you. Anything is possible. Bosh. Let’s go smash it.”
He has also been in talks to produce a new black cab hailing app with discounted fees for users, explaining his reasoning for trialling one out to Manchester.
The app would charge around 4%-7% of fees – unlike the majority of apps which charge 20%.
