He is the suave and dashing contender who gets the ladies' pulses racing. But now it has been revealed that The Apprentice candidate Myles Mordaunt has a racy past – because he he has an 11-year-old daughter with the sister of former F1 racing driver Eddie Irvine.

Myles – one of the favourites to win this year's series - started dating physiotherapist Sonia Irvine when they worked together in London organising F1 black tie events for VIP guests.

According to The Sun, they had daughter Megan before moving to Monaco in 2003.

There they set up entertainment business Amber Lounge, which hosts celebrities such as Kylie and Dannii Minogue at F1 races.

Myles - who is now married and has a two-year-old son - said on Twitter of his daughter: "Very proud Dad... Megan just became French Champion at 1m Springboard in the French National Diving Championships!!" A friend told the paper: "Myles and Sonia remain good friends sharing their daughter's activities, sports, school and birthdays."
