We have slashed the odds on Lord Alan Sugar being sacked from The Apprentice following an inflammatory tweet about the Senegal World Cup team.
The now-deleted tweet has seen his odds tumble from 20/1 into EVENS for the BBC to announce that he will not appear on the next series of the show.
Just been reading the reaction to my funny tweet about the guy on the beach in Marbella . Seems it has been interpreted in the wrong way as offensive by a few people . Frankly I cant see that I think it's funny. But I will pull it down if you insist .

He is also rated at 5/1 to delete his Twitter account before the end of the year, despite saying he ‘can’t see what he has to apologise for’ in a follow-up tweet.
Asked about the controversy spokesman Paddy Power said: “It looks like we could be saying YOU’RE FIRED to Alan Sugar today, after posting a tweet referring to the Senegal national team as beach touts.
“His odds of cancelling his account altogether are shortening, too, which would give us all a break from his musings.”
