The Apprentice UK FIRST LOOK: Does Alex come up Short? New contestant looks pensive as latest hopefuls face furious Lord Sugar… but who stays and who goes?
But from the looks of preview images for episode one, things get off to a difficult start for contestant Alex Short, 27, as he cuts a pensive figure while facing the business mogul, 71, in the boardroom.
While Lord Sugar looks furious as he makes his infamous phone call to his receptionist as the candidates await their fate – but who stays and who goes?
Meanwhile, the first task of the new series sees Nick Showering, 31, stripping down to his boxers as he films in front of a green screen.
But will his scantily-clad antics secure a victory for the boys?
Or will the girls, who are seen filming on a cruise ship, emerge as victors in episode one?
Whatever the outcome, fans will no doubt be delighted as Karren Brady’s legendary raised eyebrow is back as she casts her steely gaze over the candidate’s actions, ready to report back to Lord Sugar.
This year will see series one contestant Tim Campbell join Karren as Lord Sugar’s other trusted aide, having replaced former star Claude Littner who bowed out due to an E-bike accident.
Karren recently gave a hilarious insight into the eagerly anticipated new series of the reality show as she discussed the chaotic opening episode during an appearance on Tuesday’s This Morning.
