When does The Apprentice 2014 start? New series begins on TV SOON!

The Apprentice 2014

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."
