Filming for The Apprentice 2015 has reportedly begun in London.

The new series will not begin to air until the autumn on BBC One but camera crews have already started work on the eleventh run.

Lord Sugar will return with another £250,000 worth of investment up for grabs while this year will see Claude Littner replace Nick Hewer as one of the boss' trusty aides.

Nick stepped down from the show last December after ten years with the BBC announcing last month that Claude would replace him alongside Karren Brady as Lord Sugar's helpers

London newspaper the Camden New Journal reports that show bosses have set up a house for The Apprentice 2015 candidates in Holborn, but locals aren't happy with the planned eight-week intense filming schedule.

Noise and parking issues are top of the complaints with one resident of the street quoted as saying: "The council may talk to the producers about it, but when were we asked whether we’d like The Apprentice house to be in our street and all that that means?”

A spokesperson for Camden council commented: “We are proud that Camden is such a thriving destination for the film and TV industry and encourage the economic benefits that filming brings.

"As with all filming requests that we receive, minimising disruption to residents is our most important consideration.

"We have set out our expectations with the production company and are assessing the impacts of different parking plans on local residents to ensure any concerns from local residents are taken into account.”
