Don’t worry – it’s the British one, not the one involving Trump.

In the last series, Lord Sugar couldn’t decide which of the two final candidates to hire, so he chose both and split his investment between them. Hopefully we will be more decisive with this year’s contestants, which include a professional speaker, a solicitor, an IT analyst and the owner of a tree surgery firm.

In this opening episode, the contestants have to purchase nine particular items at the lowest price – in Malta.

The Apprentice is on BBC One at 21.00, with The Apprentice: You’re Fired on BBC Two afterwards at 22.00.
