The Apprentice bosses forced to halt filming after candidates repeatedly flooded multi-million pound mansion | The Sun

THE Apprentice filming was repeatedly hampered by flooding at the contestants' million-pound mansion.

The Sun can reveal despite bosses splashing tens of thousands to rent the plush North London home it failed to cope with the 18 candidates.

Former soldier Mark Moseley and Sohail Chowdhary have let slip that the issue was so regular that producers begged them to stop talking about the soggy floors as they tried to film morning scenes for the hit BBC One Show.

Each episode usually shows the flustered contestants racing to get ready after receiving an early morning call from Lord Sugar to meet him somewhere in the capital.

Speaking about the secret issues, Mark said: "The bathroom, it used to flood and the camera guys would come in and there would be water all over the floor and massive puddles

"We would be talking about the floor being wet [while they were filming] and they kept telling us not to talk about it.

"It was almost like a scene out of the Titanic . I am exaggerating but it was mad. We flooded the bathroom a lot."

Meanwhile, Sohal added: "We were rushed so much that one day there were puddles on the carpet as the shower flooded the bathroom and out onto the carpets in the corridor."

Despite the Beeb spending thousands renting the plush London home, it seems not everyone was impressed.

Former soldier Mark said: "There was no water pressure on the top floor and the shower just trickled out as we were so high up on the fourth floor."
