The Apprentice is back! Start date confirmed!


The start date for The Apprentice 2016 has been confirmed, and there is not long to wait!


Although previous series of the show have run during the Summer and Spring months, it would seem this was not the case this year due to the Rio 2016 Olympics and the Euros 2016.

Instead, this year it will be airing in October, October 6th to be precise. This comes as a shock as the new series will air on a Thursday as opposed to the usual Wednesday showing.

The BBC teased the new time slot saying “Wednesdays have been fired…”

The show is then set to run all the way through October and November, and finish around Christmas time.

The series will, as ever, feature Lord Alan Sugar, Claude Littner and Karren Brady, as they take their seats in the boardroom for the twelfth series of The Apprentice.

Claude, who joined the showed in 2015 following Nick Hewer’s choice to step down, has recently revealed that he wishes to do better in his second appearance.

“I think I was all right last year. But I think I can do better,” he explained: “With the role I was doing before, it was right that I was tougher. It’s the interviews so it’s got to be very strict and stern. It’s almost the final at that stage.”

“You’re helping find someone who will win. So you can’t play around. But when I’m there in my new role I can afford to show a different side to my character.”

There will also be change over on BBC Two as Rhod Gilbert will be replacing Jack Dee as presenter of You’re Fired.

So tune in on October 6th at 9pm on BBC One for the new series of the Apprentice!
