The Apprentice UK starring Lord Sugar is a British television reality show shown live on BBC TV with catchup streaming on BBC iPlayer.
A British reality game show The Apprentice UK groups together aspiring businesswomen and men compete for the chance to win a £250,000 investment from British business magnate, Lord Alan Sugar, towards a business of the candidate’s creation, with Sugar as a 50% owner.
The show, billed as a “job interview from hell”, is very similar in format to the American series of the same name, which starred entrepreneur Donald Trump. Both the American and British versions of The Apprentice are produced by Mark Burnett. Compared to the US series, the British version has a more rigid format that requires twelve episodes per series and at least four candidates for the final round of interviews.
