- Billionaire Lord Sugar, 72, recently invested in Cheshire-based Siteform Flooring
- Director Brian Costello, 43, is alleged to have shared vile far-right propaganda
- He is reported to have posted a link to an anti-Islam blog called The Muslim issue
Lord Sugar has launched an urgent investigation after his new business partner was allegedly caught posting links to far-right propaganda.
The billionaire Apprentice star, 72, recently invested in Cheshire-based Siteform Flooring.
But its director, Brian Costello, 43, has been reportedly sharing content including a video bearing the manifesto slogan of the New Zealand terror attacker.
Unaware of Mr Costello’s posts, Lord Sugar even tweeted a job advert for his new business partner’s firm on Monday.

Unaware of Mr Costello’s posts, Lord Sugar even tweeted a job advert for his new business partner’s firm on Monday (the tweet is pictured)
‘My new business partner Siteform Flooring is now hiring staff. Apply below,’ he wrote.
Shocked at the find, uncovered by The Sun, the business mogul has now vowed to ‘get to the bottom of this straight away’, according to a spokesman.
Mr Costello’s firm provides commercial flooring throughout the United Kingdom.
On its website, the firm states: ‘With Siteform you get a truly complete job delivered with integrity, care, attention to detail and highly competitive pricing.’
But Lord Sugar, who joined the board last month via Amsvest, may now question his future relationship with the company.
The video which Mr Costello re-tweeted declared ‘Stop The Great Replacement’.
It has been said to refers to a theory that European populations are being supplanted by immigration.
‘The Great Replacement’ was used as the title of the New Zealand attacker’s manifesto.
The chilling 73-page manifesto details his twisted grievances, why he picked the mosques in Christchurch and how he was inspired by Norway mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 in 2011.

Brenton Tarrent, 28, an Australian white supremacist, is currently remanded in a maximum-security jail in Auckland awaiting trial for the murder of 51 Muslim worshippers on March 15.
Mr Costello was also reported to have posted a link to an anti-Islam blog called The Muslim issue.
His public profile has now been turned to private.
It comes as a racism row embroils the current series of The Apprentice.
Current contestant Lottie Lion came in for criticism after telling fellow contestant Lubna Farhan, 33, to ‘Shut up Gandhi’ and warning ‘I’ll f*** you up’ in a WhatsApp group conversation.
Miss Lion said Miss Farhan had misquoted Gandhi and made a cruel comment about a friend who had died.
She denies accusations of racism, bullying and homophobia.
