The Apprentice 2019 has arrived and here's where to follow this year's contestants on social media.
This year the opportunity to become Lord Sugar’s next Business partner is tougher than ever.
With a £250,000 investment up for grabs, The Apprentice 2019 has attracted candidates from a range of careers and backgrounds; from an athlete to an artisan bakery owner, from a chartered engineer to a sports management agent, and from a finance manager to a pillow salesman, each must draw from their own experience and natural talent to succeed.
Alongside Lord Sugar, Baroness Brady and Claude Littner return as trusted advisors, who are once again on hand to scrutinise the candidate’s every move. After each task, the candidates must face Lord Sugar in the boardroom, where they will have to fight it out to avoid hearing the dreaded: "You’re fired."
Here's a round up of this year's contestants and where to follow them on social media...
