The Apprentice may be all about the candidates but without Lord Sugar and his boardroom experts, there’d be nobody to put the eager entrepreneurs through their paces – and bring them back down to earth with a sassy bang every now and again.
Throughout the past 11 series (yes, 2017 really does mark the 12th run of the BBC favourite) we’ve seen the faces on both Lord Sugar’s left and right-hand side change, while the main man himself remains more or less the same, but who’d been the most consistently brilliant in the boardroom?
Who’s had the most entertaining put downs? Or made the most brilliantly passive aggressive remarks about the men and women vying for Lord Sugar’s support and expertise?
Is it the marvellous Margaret Mountford? The brilliant Nick Hewer? Perhaps it’s the clever Karren Brady or the canny Claude Littner?
Have your say by casting your vote.
The Apprentice returns to BBC1 on Wednesday October 4th at 9pm
