MILLIONS of viewers saw Ruislip born and bred recruitment sales manager Lee McQueen declared the winner of The Apprentice.
Lee, 30, was brought up in South Ruislip and his father still works as a milkman in the area.
The former Queensmead School pupil beat 15 other contestants to be crowned this year's Apprentice by Amstrad boss Sir Alan Sugar last Wednesday.
Gary Capp, assistant headteacher at Queensmead School, said: "Lee contacted the school as soon as he knew he was on the programme and we were obviously very excited for him. We all followed his progress and we were thrilled that he won.
"Before he was on the programme he said he was keen for any kudos to be reflected on the school, and he said he is planning a visit at the end of June."
Lee left school with eight GCSEs and also went on to gain a BTec diploma in IT.
