The Apprentice’s Reece Donnelly’s brother is serving a life term for a horrific murder outside a Glasgow tower block.

The Apprentice star Reece, 25, was introduced as a contestant on the iconic BBC show last night, but the Scottish acting school boss has had a difficult couple of years after his brother Nico was jailed for life.

Nico was sentenced in 2016 for severely stabbing Jamie Johnstone, 21, to death in Sandyhills, Glasgow.

According to the Daily Record, the 29-year-old has had extra time added to his sentence for violent behavior inside the institution.

Reece, from Cambuslang, near Glasgow, told the publication that he extends his ‘heartfelt condolences’ to Jamie’s family in the aftermath of his brother’s horrible deed.

Despite their four-year age difference, the latest contestant for the hit BBC reality show claimed he didn’t truly know his brother.

“I am not acquainted with the individual in question. This information was only recently brought to my attention. “My heartfelt condolences go out to the affected families,” he said.

“Reece has worked hard to build up his business but had to start it at a horrible time – just as Nico was being put away for life,” a friend said of Reece’s determined work ethic in the aftermath of his brother’s imprisonment.

“It was a terrible period for his family because they had done nothing wrong but had to experience a lot of pain as a result of Nico’s acts.

According to the insider, the brothers were ‘never close,’ and their lives became ‘poles apart’ as they grew older.

“Reece wants to plan for the future and is focusing on The Apprentice.” “His close friend said.

Nico Donnelly was convicted guilty of murder in December 2016 at Glasgow’s High Court.

Jamie, from Cranhill, was stabbed twice in the chest on Sandyhills street the previous January.

Donnelly claimed he was acting in self-defense and that the knife struck Jamie twice as he sought to cover himself.

“As a result of your unforgivable brutality, Mr. Johnstone has lost his life at the age of only 21, and his family has lost him forever,” said Lord Beckett, who condemned Donnelly to life in prison and ordered him to serve at least 20 years behind bars.
