THE APPRENTICE: MEET THE CANDIDATES OF 2023

Joining Lord Sugar will be his trusted advisors Baroness Karren Brady, Tim Campbell MBE and Claude Littner, who returns for two episodes. For the first time since series 13, the show will return with 18 new candidates, all competing to win a life-changing £250,000 investment in their businesses.



Thrown in at the deep end from day one, the candidates travel to Antigua where they are tasked with creating and selling excursions to tourists. Candidates who aren’t cast away in the first task are back to face a host of equally tough challenges for the series ahead.



From creating their own cartoon, to the world of male beauty, from immersive events, to street food, our aspiring titans of industry will once again have to prove that they have what it takes.



With the stakes higher than ever and the loser’s cab on standby, as always there’s no easing gently back into boardroom life in this series as our candidates bid to become Lord Sugar’s next business partner and winner of The Apprentice.
