The deadline for applying for the new series of The Apprentice is 23:59 on Monday 25 January.

So if you think you've got what it takes to be Lord Sugar's next business partner, you haven't got long.

The businessman says he only wants "serious people" for the 12th series of The Apprentice.

You can apply on the show's website but there is a word of warning from Lord Sugar if you just want to be famous:

"Forget it. This isn't some kind of game show. Be under no illusion, this is a life-changing process. It's a new year, new opportunities. We want people who've got experience in a certain area and want to take it to the next level." - Lord Sugar

Lord Sugar has said he would like the BBC to commission a new programme focusing on the progress of past winners of The Apprentice.
He said such a series "would show what a great service the programme is performing for young entrepreneurs, young people, to inspire them".
The BBC said there are no current plans to broadcast a spin-off series.
Speaking about some of the show's past winners, Lord Sugar said: "They've turned into great business people."
He added: "I think the BBC need to do something about that. They need to do a programme, for example, on where they are now."

The new series of "The Apprentice" starts tonight on UK television with series 14.

The search for Lord Sugar's next business partner begins, and this year the challenges are bigger and better than ever. Lord Sugar has already invested his own money in eight businesses, and he is now ready to take a gamble on a brand new venture. The 16 hopeful candidates will be whittled down over the next 12 weeks until only one remains. To demonstrate just how much is at stake, Lord Sugar summons the aspiring entrepreneurs to his boardroom, where he kicks off proceedings with something he has never done before.

This year's series of The Apprentice has been postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, the BBC has said. The show, which sees Sir Alan Sugar pick a business partner, has been broadcast every year since 2005, and normally starts in October. But series 16 has been put on hold in the interests of "production safety and the wellbeing of everyone involved". Instead, highlights of previous boardroom highs and lows will be broadcast later this year.
