Lord Alan Sugar has confirmed that The Apprentice will return to our living rooms this autumn.
The English entrepreneur and TV personality announced on Twitter that the reality series, in which a group of businessmen and women battle for the opportunity to work with him, will be back in under a fortnight.
The launch is scheduled for Tuesday 14 October before a second episode the night after. From then on, the series will run every Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One.
For more dedicated fans, there will also be a 10th anniversary special on Monday 13 October at 10.35pm. This one-off show will remind viewers of “classic moments and characters” from past series.

To get you ready for the new series of Apprentice, on Mon 13 Oct 10.35pm BBC1 there’s a 10-year special with classic moments and characters.— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) September 30, 2014
Doctor Leah Totton won last year’s series after attracting Lord Sugar’s business attention with her proposition for a medical cosmetic surgery company. She won £250,000 to put towards the business.
Lord Sugar will be back in the judge’s chair for the tenth run to tell more wannabes “You’re fired!”, accompanied once more by Nick Hewer and Karren Brady.
The show first began in 2005 on BBC Two and soon became a huge ratings success with its gripping, competitive format.
English lost her case for claiming he treated her like “an overpaid lackey” and gave her menial tasks.
Media columnist and commentator Katie Hopkins also originated on The Apprentice. She turned down Lord Sugar’s offer of a place in the series three final because of childcare problems and withdrew from the competition.Reuse content
