The Apprentice is back! Yes the hit BBC show has returned for 2022, and sees the contestants face Lord Sugar in a bid to win a life-changing investment.
Each task will end with the candidates being summoned in to fight their corner in the boardroom, with one final opportunity to escape the firing line.
The contestants include one entrepreneur who thinks sleep is a “waste of time”, a Flight Operations Instructor who served in the RAF for 12 years and a Nicki Minaj superfan pharmacist.

After the first episode aired on 7 January, we saw the contestants return to their luxurious home, where they’ll stay for the duration of the show… unless, of course, they’re booted off by Lord Sugar.
The home’s exact location is on London’s Bishops Avenue – also known as Billionaire’s Row.
Inside The Apprentice house
The gorgeous mansion, named Huxley House, is just as swanky as you might expect, and has room a’plenty for the contestants.
The home has featured on Channel 4’s Britain’s Most Expensive Homes and spans over four floors, with an internal lift to boot.
Inside you’ll find five reception rooms and seven en-suite bathrooms.
There’s a swimming pool, jacuzzi, wide open rooms and lots of impressive artwork inside.
We caught a glimpse inside the grand hallway as the girls entered, with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and a spiral staircase.
Moving through to the lounge, you’ll find a fully-stocked bar, beige sofas, and an ambiance perfect for relaxing in.
Despite the luxurious nature of the mansion, former contestant Jackie Fast has previously said she wasn’t a fan.
She told the Mirror: “I hated living in the house.
“I’m 35, I don’t want to be sharing a bedroom. I haven’t lived with three people in one room ever. It’s just personal space. It’s like living in a locker room.
“Everyone wants to look their best because it’s on TV but there are three mirrors, so there are logistics issues.
“You’re all running around and there is no time. And there are camera crews. It’s mayhem.”
In the first episode of the new 2022 series, Harry Mahmood was the first to be fired.
In the brutal boardroom scenes, Harry, 35, was let go by Lord Sugar and became the first candidate to be pointed at and hear the words, “you’re fired.”
In an exclusive interview with OK!, Harry told us: “I was basically a scapegoat, if I’m honest with you. Akeem [Bundu-Kamara, the Project Manager of the task] had to take accountability.”
