The Apprentice returned date revealed

Alan SugarThe return date for The Apprentice has been revealed thanks to the show’s main ‘star’ Lord Alan Sugar.

The business tycoon revealed via Twitter that the popular BBC One series will return for a brand new series in mid May. The Apprentice will return for its seventh season since launching in the UK, originally on BBC Two, in 2005. Last year’s run of The Apprentice was delayed slightly because of the General Election due to Lord Sugar’s role in the Labour Government of the time. The BBC did not want to be seen be breaking impartiality rules in the run up to the election and so pushed back The Apprentice.

The seventh season of The Apprentice will once again see Lord Sugar aided by Nick Hewer and Karren Brady as the show’s contestants battle it out – and stab each other in the back – to win the show. Lord Sugar revealed the series will return on Tuesday 10th May at 9pm followed by a second instalment on Wednesday 11th May with further episodes airing in a Wednesday evening slot.
