Next Episode of The Apprentice is
The Apprentice sees fourteen candidates, competing against each other for a position at Lord Alan Sugar's company. Each week the candidates take part in a task set by Lord Sugar. Each team will have a Team Leader who managers that group for that task. The team that performs the best will win a reward and avoid the boardroom. The losing team will be summoned to the boardroom where their team leader will be forced to pick two people in their team who we join them in the boardroom and a chance to be fired. After twelve weeks Lord Sugar will be left with his Apprentice, who will work for him at a salary of £100,000. Lord Sugar is very busy so he has Nick and Karen, who act as his eyes and ears, to inform him of what's going on.
The battle to become Lord Sugar's business partner is nearing the end, as the remaining candidates have 24 hours to brush up on their business plans and face the formidable interview process. It's time to get a grilling from four of Lord Sugar's trusted advisors - Claude Littner, Claudine Collins, Mike Soutar and Linda Plant. After plans are scrutinised and characters questioned, Lord Sugar selects his two finalists.
With the final just days away and Lord Sugar on the cusp of choosing his new business partner, this programme looks back on the candidates who fell before the final hurdle and the tasks that tested them to the limit. From slacking sales at a soggy boat show to the 'out of this world' virtual reality game Gordon's Lost His Badger, the candidates have had both great highs and jaw-dropping lows. Facing lost jeans, double firings, cream cracker canapes and even a sing-a-long with mermaids, the challenges have involved humour, heartache and some outstanding performances. With the help of previously unseen insights from the eagle-eyed Karren Brady and Claude Littner, Lord Sugar leads through the best and worst decisions made by the candidates. He looks back on the boardroom bust-ups and explains how he came to decide who would hear the words 'You're fired!'.
The two finalists receive a call summoning them to London's City Hall. Lord Sugar informs them that their final task is to launch their business by creating a brand and unveiling their campaign in front of a packed audience full of industry experts. A few old faces return as the two finalists choose key colleagues to try to help them secure the ú250,000 investment, and it is straight to work as they set out to build a brand, make a TV advert and create a company fit for Lord Sugar. In the boardroom, business plans are evaluated and ad campaigns are assessed, but there can only one winner. It is heartbreak for one and ecstasy for the other, as Lord Sugar finally picks his next business partner.
Rhod Gilbert meets the series winner and runner-up as well as Lord Sugar himself to discuss the tears, triumphs and most memorable moments of the past 12 weeks. They are joined by former candidates and special guests on the panel.
