PICTURES! The Apprentice 2013 candidates open new businesses

The six remaining Apprentice 2013 candidates are woken by a 6.30am phone call on tonight's show.

Still dressed in their PJs, the group watch a video message from Lord Sugar, who tells them: “Good morning. I’m sorry to get you out of bed so early, but I need you to have an early start because you’ve got a lot on in the next couple of days. I can’t be with you today because I’ve had to go off on a foreign business trip.

"But I’d like to say well done to you all for getting so far. There’s only six of you left and it’ll be in two weeks time I will be deciding which one of you is going to be my business partner. This task is all about seeing what you’re made of. I want to see if you can grow a business from scratch in 48 hours.

"You’re going to go off and buy some stock for a stall that I’ve arranged for you. The second day, you’re going to take all of your accumulated assets and stock out a shop. At the end of the two days, I will be judging who is the winner by the team that has accumulated the biggest amount of assets. In the losing team, one of you will be fired.”

Lord Sugar starts by changing the groups around so that it is once again an all-male team versus an all-female team, before sending the candidates out to begin this week’s task.

The Apprentice 2013 airs tonight at 9PM on BBC One.
