If you think you have got what it takes to withstand a boardroom showdown and win a life changing investment to turn your business idea into a reality, the BBC One show, The Apprentice, is looking for new business-savvy contestants for series 14.

Impressing Britain’s toughest business backer won’t be a walk in the park though and contestants will be put through their paces to earn the seal of approval from Lord Sugar and his associates, Karren Brady and Claude Littner, with weekly tasks.

Lord Sugar has already invested over £1,500,000 in business start-ups through The Apprentice and the winner of The Apprentice 2018 is expected to scoop another £250,000, plus a 50:50 business partnership.

Contestants for series 14 will be more hopeful of landing an investment than ever before after last year’s nail biting final saw both Sarah Lynn, a confectionery company owner, and James White, a recruitment firm owner both win Lord Sugar's investment.

The joint winners were the first in the show’s 14 year history.

Applicants have until Monday 29th January to apply via www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours/takepart/apprentice.
