Four of The Apprentice 2016 candidates have reportedly got into romances on the show.

Despite being rivals in the boardroom, some of the contestants have been hitting it off in the bedroom.

As usual, all of the candidates are living together at a London mansion for the duration of filming.

And on time off between tasks, they've been 'getting to know one another'.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Jessica Cunningham has been involved in some 'close negotiations' with Courtney Wood, while Grainne McCoy and Paul Sullivan have also been 'doing business'.

A source told the tabloid: “Both couples would suddenly ­disappear and there were several times they’d be found upstairs under the covers, kissing.

“Production team researchers had to go into one of the girl’s rooms and tell the boys to move back to their own beds.”

Couples on The Apprentice are nothing new with Elle Stevenson and Mergim Butaja said to have got close last year.

In 2014 James Hill and Lauren Riley supposedly got together while 2013 saw rumours that Jordan Poulton and Luisa Zissman had hooked up while on the show.

And in 2009 there was an epic boardroom battle when Phillip Taylor and Kate Walsh's relationship was brought up in front of Lord Sugar after the pair's team failed a task.

The Apprentice 2016 continues Thursday night at 9PM on BBC One.
