Fronted by business tycoon Lord Sugar alongside his trusted advisors Baroness Karren Brady, and Tim Campbell MBE, the latest season of the hugely popular reality show will see 18 new contestants battle it out in the boardroom in the hopes of impressing Sugar, and securing a whopping £250,000 investment and mentorship from the notoriously tough and hard to please business mogul.

Those who successfully make it through the first boardroom will face a host of equally challenging tasks over the series – from a virtual escape room through to creating children’s cereal, and tackling a tourism task in Budapest.
