Who won The Apprentice 2016? Winner revealed in tonight's final task!

The Apprentice 2016 winner confirmed tonight


The Apprentice 2016 winner will be crowned in tonight's final task as Courtney Wood and Alana Spencer go head to head.

There have been ten weeks of tasks and the interviews are now over with after a triple firing that saw the final two candidates chosen.

Alana and Wood are the only two left standing and tonight they face the FINAL where one of them will go on to win Lord Sugar's £250,000 investment and become his new business partner.

This evening the pair must launch their businesses to win Lord Sugar's backing in the final boardroom of the series.


As usual, the past candidates return to lend a helping hand as Alana and Courtney choose key colleagues to try and help them secure the £250,000 investment.

Alana picks Grainne, Frances, Rebecca and Olivia for her team while Courtney selects Jessica, Karthik, Sofiane and Paul.

It’s then straight to work as they set out to build a brand, make a TV advert and create a company fit for Lord Sugar.

Courtney's business plan is an online website selling novelty gifts. While he currently mainly sells products created by others, he also hopes to expand on his own design ideas for gifts.

But his final task gets off to a bad start with indecision over just what to call his new business.

Alana is hoping to expand on her current home bakery business by turning it into a wholesale cake company. She wants to make big profit selling tray bakes - like brownies - to smaller, independent shops.

Like Courtney, she too struggles with a brand and ends up changing things at the the last minute.

Once the brand names are eventually chosen and ads are edited, Alana and Courtney enter the spotlight to pitch their business plans.

The finalists must present their brands to 200 leading industry experts - and Lord Sugar himself - while battling the worst nerves of the series.


After hearing back from the experts, Lord Sugar summons the final two back to the boardroom for one last time where he reveals his final decision.

The Winner of The Apprentice 2016 is chosen...

THE FINAL of The Apprentice airs on SUNDAY, 18 December, 9pm on BBC One and BBC One HD, immediately followed by an hour special of You’re Hired.
