A female impersonator from Manchester says his search for an apprentice was directly inspired by Sir Alan Sugar.
Lanzarote based Titti Trollop (real name Paul Carroll) has advertised for an apprentice drag queen to star alongside him at The Music Hall Tavern in Peurto del Carmen.
The 39 year old has been running the review act for 15 years but feels the time is approaching for him to hang up his high heels.
He said: “I have a handful of other performers in the show but, not to put too fine a point on it, none of us are getting any younger.
“What we desperately need is some new blood. Someone hot, young and fabulous.
“I turned on the television the other night and saw an episode of The Apprentice. It hit me like a bolt of lightening – that’s what I need!”
He added that no qualifications would be required for the job and full training would be provided. The location is fantastic – right on the beach at one of the most popular tourist resorts in the Canary Islands. Hours though are unsociable – the apprentice will be expected to work six evenings a week.
On the upside a uniform will be provided – sequined dress with high heels and feather boa. The salary is undisclosed but is thought to be slightly more modest than the £100,000 Sir Alan offers to his apprentice.
Titti added: “This is a great opportunity for someone. It’s a fabulous life out here in Lanzarote. We’ve got sun, sea, sand and sangria.
“I don’t really care about qualifications. I’m looking for a young man with a great voice, a great pair of legs and an outgoing personality. I can’t wait to tell him, ‘You’re hired!’”
