The Apprentice stars Sam Curry and Elle Stevenson have teamed up to write another children's book together.

On the show, viewers will remember Sam and Elle put their pens together to create their short story, Snottydink.

As part of a creative task, the candidates were asked to put together a children's book to sell to publishers. But despite losing out to the other team on the show, Sam and Elle have been inspired by their first creation as it is now selling for a whopping £60 on eBay...

Yup, the original version of Snottydink can be snapped up for £40 online, or for over £60 when sold with the other team's story, Bizzie's First Adventure, too.

Now that's one pricey story, right?

Hoping to build on the success of their initial tale, Sam and Elle are now in the process of writing a series of children's book, he has revealed.

Speaking to the Radio Times, Sam spilled all on his latest business venture.

"Elle and I are currently in the process of writing a children's book together," he said. "I am being 100 percent serious."

He continued: "Whether it will be a Snottydink sequel, or whether it will be something else entirely, I'm not sure yet. But it's happening."

And proving how committed they are to the cause, Elle has reportedly quit her job in construction.

Sam's comments come after viewers recently watched Lord Alan Sugar fire him from The Apprentice.

In last night's episode, the candidates had to set up their own discount stores and the team that made the most profit would win the task. Sam found himself in the losing team and was later brought into the firing line for miscalculating the store's stock.

His exit follows that of Elle's who was fired in a triple firing the week before. She was given the boot, along with Mergim Butaja and April Jackson, after failing to "plan, organise and build a strategy" for her team and sub-team during the show's handyman task.

Since then, she has opened up on what it's like to face Lord Sugar, referring to him as "terrifying".

"Lord Sugar is absolutely terrifying," she insisted. "I think I wet myself a little bit when I first walked in there because he was so scary. I couldn't stop shaking."
