‘I’m half-machine.’ ‘I took inspiration from Napoleon.’ ‘I’ll do anything to win.’ Yes, ‘The Apprentice’ is back and, after a couple of lean years, it’s looking in fine fettle. A cracking sales task gets the ball (and Nick and Karren’s eyeballs) rolling on Tuesday – see our spoiler-free preview. Then check out our preview of Wednesday’s second episode, a flavoured beer promo that leaves everyone with hangovers. The casting looks superb, with a liberal sprinkling of toffs, wide boys and eager beavers. And what of Lord Sugar? ‘I’m sick of bloody clichés… for me, actions speak louder than words.’ In fine fettle, like we said.
‘The Apprentice’ is on Tuesday May 7 & Wed May 8 at 9pm, BBC1. Find out who not to back on ‘The Apprentice‘.
