We’re used to bad blood between celebs, but we expected more from these two!

Two of BBC’s business programming stars, Karren Brady off The Apprentice and former Dragons’ Den star Duncan Bannatyne, have engaged in a good old fashioned game of mud-slinging. So much for festive spirit!

Karren kicked off the ‘feud’ on Sunday in her The Sun newspaper column, when she referred to Duncan, 66, as a “deluded prune” for sharing a snap of him kissing his 35-year-old girlfriend, Nigora Whitehorn.

The Apprentice aide appeared to suggest that Nigora was only with Duncan, who recently competed on I’m a Celebrity, for his “thick wallet”, before adding: "Maybe I should stop being bitchy – I’m sure there are millions of reasons why she is with him!“

A bit below the belt from Karren, no? We expect this from the Apprentice candidates, not her!

Duncan, having had the comments brought to his attention on Twitter, responded to several tweets from fans.

He wrote, “Brady has shown she is a complete coward attacking my girlfriend in this way Total coward Brady (sic)”

Asked why he thinks Karren, 46, is a “coward”, he added: “To attack an innocent girl that has no route of reply is cowardly.”

We expected more from the Baroness honestly… #disappointed
