If you've been itching to know just when The Apprentice 2014 starts on TV this year then we've got some good news: The wait is almost over!
It was revealed way back in February of 2014 that the new series - which will be the landmark tenth to have aired - won't be starting until the AUTUMN.
It's been been some 18 months since the last series, which saw Leah Totton win Lord Sugar's £250,000 investment last Spring in a final up against Luisa Zissman.
Lord Sugar tweeted earlier this year: "lots of people asking ,so only for those intetested. The apprentice is back this Autumn on BBC-1"
He added: “It won't be on until Autumn of 2014 to avoid the World Cup."
Today (September 30), Lord Sugar finally confirmed The Apprentice 2014 start date with a double bill kicking things off on October 14 and 15.
Last year's series ending up hitting highs of more than 6 million viewers on BBC One, proving to be a continued ratings hit despite having been on air for a decade now.
But its spin-off Young Apprentice didn't last as long with Lord Sugar very publicly blasting he BBC for axing it.
A source claimed to the Daily Mirror newspaper last year: “Lord Sugar loved Young Apprentice and felt he was helping youngsters learn about business."
They added: "He felt a show like that should not be all about ratings and was providing a valuable tool."
