'Apprentice' star on bail over fraud
Thursday 28 October 2010
A contestant in Lord Sugar's hit show The Apprentice will find out in December whether he is to be charged with fraud, police said.
The mortgage broker Christopher Farrell's bail has been extended until 8 December pending a decision from the Crown Prosecution Service.
Mr Farrell, 29, from Plymouth, was originally arrested in August and it is understood the allegation relates to making a false representation via cheque or card.
A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman said: "Christopher Farrell has been further released on police bail to attend Charles Cross police station in Plymouth pending a charging decision by the Crown Prosecution Service."
Mr Farrell's fraud arrest emerged on the eve of the start of the current series when it was also revealed that he has a weapons conviction, which he did not disclose to TV producers. Mr Farrell was in the dock at Plymouth Crown Court last September – just before filming started – and admitted two charges of possessing an offensive weapon.
