When does The Apprentice start? All you need to know

It is not long now until The Apprentice 2014 begins on BBC 1.

It has been announced that The Apprentice will return to our screens on Tuesday October 14 at 9:00pm on BBC 1.

This year’s series is the tenth in what has become a hugely popular show, and while those who have won previously have – for the most part – slipped quickly from our minds, it will not be long before we are fully engulfed in the escapades of another batch of self-proclaimed entrepreneurs.

This series will see 20 new candidates fighting it out for the chance to be Sir Alan Sugar’s business partner. So expect to see all the usual awful decisions on the part of the contestants (let’s face it, that’s what they are) and wonderful facial expressions from Sir Alan’s advisors Karren Brady and Nick Hewer.

What has long been my favourite reality show will also air on Wednesday October 15, giving fans the chance to quickly get used to the new batch of wannabes.
