Alan Sugar has actually printed that controversial cartoon of Piers Morgan with Donald Trump onto a canvas, bringing that disturbing image to the forefront of our minds once again.

The boss of The Apprentice revealed the news in a tweet on Friday and is now offering the work to a major art gallery, along with another canvas of the two figures.
