Lord Sugar has revealed when The Apprentice is coming back to TV

It’s another autumn return to the boardroom


Lord Sugar’s search for his next business partner continues this autumn, with the businessman and TV personality confirming via Twitter that BBC1’s The Apprentice would return to screens this October.


While the series used to air in Spring, this new airdate is in keeping with the most recent instalments of the business contest, with the previous three runs beginning in early-to-mid October, so it’s fair to say this news isn’t a big surprise.

Still, it’s good to know that we haven’t got too long to wait until those bum-badum-badums start blaring and a new army of besuited wannabe entrepreneurs descends on London with tiny suitcases. With apologies to Father Christmas, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
