    A reminder of last year’s finale 2…

      About time! Love this show. Was hoping Claude would be back though.
      I have a bad feeling about this.

        I thought I'd read that there was meant to be a centenary special and Claude was back. Guess I read wrong or it was just rumours. However Claude did tweet that he was back filming full time so I'm a bit confused

          Actually weren’t two series announced for this year?

            BBC has confirmed the return of The Apprentice for a “bigger and better” 17th season that is set to air in 2023. It will see the groundbreaking return of Claude Littner to the boardroom.

            The competition, which has been running since 2005, sees 18 entrepreneurs compete for a 250,000 business investment from Lord Sugar. The Hackney-born millionaire will be supported by a line-up of advisors, which will see a shake-up for the next series.

            In 2021, he was supported by business executive and West Ham United vice-chairman Karen Brady, who is set to reprise her advisory role once again. She was joined by Tim Campbell, the winner of the first-ever series of The Apprentice, who was a stand-in for fan-favourite Claude Littner.

            Claude Littner will, however, be returning in a reduced role for the 2023 season of The Apprentice. He is scheduled to appear in just two episodes.

            Season 17 is set to feature a number of tasks that will see the candidates journey from a local setting to overseas. The first episode will take them as far as Antigua as they are tasked with selling excursions to tourists.
            Disappointing!

              Two episodes?! Hopefully one of them is interviews.

              As much as we complain about the format, this show is just always so watchable.

                That's what I thought. 1.was announced to celebrate the BBC 100th but it seems to have been forgotten

                  It really is! I can't believe it's been going nearly 20 years and yet it's still among my most anticipated TV shows of the year, every year - it's brilliant television.

                  On the subject of Claude, if he's only doing 2 episodes, one must be interviews - if only to possibly see another moment as legendary as this:

                      Can’t wait still one of my favourite shows but there’s a lot they need to overhaul on it as most of us have agreed in recent years.

                        Lord Sugar does the Australian Celebrity Apprentice now as well for the past 2 Seasons taking over from Mark Bouris. The last season had a bit of reality style dramatics and some fierce boardrooms.

                          I would like to see more on their individual businesses or business ideas throughout the show.



                          Hilarious when they get caught out though for lying.

                            It’s the only U.K. show I bother to keep up with and watch immediately while I’m living abroad. The format does need a major rethink though.

                              Just show us them being good at business and succeeding - if the show stopped setting them up to fail at every turn and stopped firing people for things that almost definitely wasn’t their fault, it would be absolutely fine.

                              I know the point is to find a business partner, but I’d prefer a smaller number of contestants that weren’t fired, and we got to see develop over time, before a mass firing just before the boardroom stage.
                              I have a bad feeling about this.

                                  Meet the candidates finally out. Avi is probably the fittest one. The Kim Kardashian one, I reckon they’ll keep her in for good TV.

                                        I'm not checking the previews of anything until the launch, I've missed this!

                                          karen complaining that one of them told the tourists to read the signs to get more info about the tour, knowing full well that he's been dropped in Antigua yesterday with no prep or time to do research. make it make sense.

                                          bet the producers told them to ask those questions...
                                          what's going on?

                                            I also don’t get how they’re expected to become tour guides overnight and have Karen and Claude raising their eyebrows at them when they struggle, but such is this show!

                                            Is this the youngest cast they’ve ever had? It was like sixth formers running an enterprise day at their college. The girls especially were squabbling like 14 year olds, so petty.

                                            Bless geeky Gregory and his obsession with cannons! The boys were definitely more cohesive.

                                            It’s always so amateur how they try and out-barter each other cos they think that’s going to get them some glory in the boardroom, and that 35% commission expectation from the girls was ludicrous.

                                              It's all a bit too love island for me this time around. Either I'm nearly dead, or they're all super young and naive. I'm sure previous contestants had more credentials than this lot?

                                                35% commission was an actual joke. Their face when he said they usually offer 1 or 2 was amazing. And then in the cafe when one of them said he wasn't bothered by it. He literally laughed in your faces!!!

                                                  I get so much second-hand embarrassment from watching this. None of the girls stood out for positive reasons that episode.
