British billionaire Lord Alan Sugar and his wife were granted permission by the New South Wales Government to self-isolate at a private venue instead of a quarantine hotel for two weeks, upon their arrival into Australia.
And this week, the 73-year-old revealed that he had completed the required time in isolation and is now able to begin filming The Celebrity Apprentice.
Speaking to ITV on Tuesday, the business magnate praised Australia for it's 'very strict' approach to the COVID-19 quarantine.

'I'm on the last day of very, very strict quarantine here,' Lord Sugar said during the interview.
'I have to say, with a lot of admiration for the manner in which the Australian authorities deal with a situation, which obviously reflects in the fact that here we are in New South Wales where they get alarmed when there's more than one case of Coronavirus.'
He added: 'But it's very, very strict and tomorrow, I'm out of jail.'
Lord Sugar was also accompanied on the trip Down Under by his wife of 52 years, Ann Simons.
