Season 13 / Episode 1 and airs on 04 October 2017 21:00
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.
It's week eight and the candidates are taken back in time to the Museum of Childhood. Lord Sugar instructs the teams to become party planners, with just two days to set up and host a children's party for some high-spending clients.
With a £2,000 budget, the candidates must throw an event to remember, keeping an eye on profits but also pleasing the punters. Contending with tricky teens and hard-to-please parents, both teams have a challenge on their hands.
For one project manager it's a dream gig. But with grand plans for the teens to have a blast, it's not long before a massive oversight threatens to derail their task completely. Elsewhere on the team there's a party pooper, as one candidate's attempts to keep a tight rein on the budget risk spoiling the day for the birthday girl.
On the other team, efforts to make merry with the kids fall flat when an overzealous double act lead a lacklustre assault course. Things go from bad to worse with a mix up over the birthday cake and a blunder with the party gifts. Faced with disgruntled customers, the blame game starts and the party falls flat.
As the figures are added up and the profits announced, in the boardroom it's a celebration for some. For the losers, an indignant Lord Sugar takes an unprecedented step, and for someone the party is most definitely over.
The eight remaining contestants are tasked with creating a new health food snack that they have to pitch to three major retailers. The teams are given two days to come up with the snack and then compete for orders.
A profile of the remaining five candidates with a look into each of their backgrounds and analysis from Lord Sugar's aides.
The remaining candidates have just 24 hours to brush off their business plans and face the interview process with four of Alan's most trusted advisors - Claude Littner, Claudine Collins, Mike Soutar and Linda Plant.
Lord Sugar takes a look at the best and worst of this years tasks with insider analysis from advisors Karren Brady and Claude Littner.
The final task involves the last two candidates creating and unveiling their own brand in front of industry insiders in only a few days. The candidates are allowed to bring back past candidates to help them net the £250,000 investment. Lord Sugar finally announces the winner of the series and his next business partner. Jack Dee is then joined by the contestants from tonight's show and Lord Sugar to discuss the winner's journey and the rest of the series.
