His Apprentice co-star Baroness Brady and former Olympian Lord Coe also fare poorly in the league of shame.
Some peers are present for only 2 per cent of days the Lords sits for.
Others claim the £305 daily allowance for turning up despite their poor attendance records.

Lord Sugar, who insists that Apprentice candidates use his title, attended just 28 days, for a rate of 12 per cent.'
