The Apprentice 2016 start date is nearing with a new trailer trailer this evening.

A clip was posted online by Lord Sugar on Twitter today as The Apprentice prepares for its return

But just when does it all begin back on TV again?

The BBC One reality series used to air in the spring but the past couple of years its return to TV been pushed back to the autumn.

That's the case again this year with the recent Rio 2016 Olympics together with the Euro 2016 championships ruling out any summer airing for the show.

Taking to Twitter recently, Lord Sugar confirmed that The Apprentice 2016 would be back on TV from October this year.

Although a precise launch date hasn't been announced just yet, based on previous years a premiere around October 5 - October 12 would seem the most likely.

Filming for this year's show took place earlier in the year as Lord Sugar, Claude Littner and Karren Brady all returned to the boardroom.

But it's change on BBC Two spin-off show You're Hired (again) as comedian Rhod Gilbert takes over from Jack Dee who lasted only a year in charge after replacing long-time host Dara O Briain last year.

"As a massive fan of The Apprentice, I can't wait to start hosting You're Fired," Rhod said today.

He added: "As someone who has been fired from 24 jobs in six series of my BBC work experience show [Rhod Gilbert's Work Experience] I feel I have what it takes to empathise with the candidates who've been so cruelly rejected, and provide a shoulder for them to cry on."

It was Joseph Valente who The Apprentice last year in 2015, securing a £250,000 investment from Lord Sugar into his gas and plumbing engineering company.
