The Apprentice 2018 is back: Here are the contestants, results so far and latest spoilers.
The Apprentice Series 14 attracted applicants from a range of business sectors - from tax advisors to eco cleaning - who will all have to adapt quickly to work as a team and avoid the boardroom firing.
As always, the budding entrepreneurs will be put through their paces by business heavyweight Lord Sugar as the search for his next business partner begins.
Baroness Brady and Claude Littner resume duties as Lord Sugar’s trusted advisors and his ‘eyes and ears’ on the tasks, reporting back on the candidates’ every decision in the boardroom.

The Apprentice 2018 spoilers
This year, the award-winning series will be bigger and better than ever, as Lord Sugar ups the ante right from the start and warns the candidates to “expect the unexpected”.
In Week 6, the candidates are split into teams and asked to create and brand a new budget airline.
They must come up with an original marketing campaign, including a TV advert, to promote their new brand and pitch it to advertising executives. After his clash with Lord Sugar in the boardroom last week, Kurran will head up one of the teams.
The Apprentice 2018 airs Wednesday nights on BBC One.
