BILL: I'VE BOOKED CASTLE FOR BIRTHDAY..MY 100TH; Apprentice star's vow to hit a century.
APPRENTICE boss Bill Cullen is so sure he'll live to 100, he's booked the venue for his birthday.
The 68-year-old tycoon may be more than a few years off the milestone, but partner Jackie Lavin, 63, has warned him to be fit for the massive bash. And the multimillionaire car dealer even hinted the couple might have tied the knot by then.
He said: "Getting married puts shackles on you, it says that you have to do this... we're both free to walk out the door every time we want but we don't. You'd be stupid.
"That's the way we are.
And you never know about a marriage.
"I've just booked Dromoland Castle for my 100th birthday party. Jackie says she's not going to carry me up the steps. I have to be able to walk and that's it!" Bill and fellow judges Jackie and Brian Purcell are searching for contestants for the next series of the Apprentice. To apply, visit tv3. ie/theapprentice before May 3.
