Lord Alan Sugar will begin searching for his third 'Young Apprentice' when the series returns in November
The new series of 'Young Apprentice' kicks off on November 1.
Lord Alan Sugar is back in the boardroom and searching for the next junior business mastermind to mentor in the third series of the BBC One show.
Twelve young candidates will face off against each other in a series of cut-throat tasks in the hopes of impressing the business mogul with their creativity, entrepreneurial flair and business sense.
Addressing the contestants in the opening episode, Lord Sugar declares: "I don't like teacher's pets and I don't like school bullies. This is about the real world. I'm not making you sit exams; the only grade you'll get here is 'F' for Fired."
This year's crop of hopefuls are aged 16 to 17 and include a former head girl, a farmer's daughter, a female rugby-player, a fashion designer, a choral scholar and a ukulele player.
Straight-talking sidekicks Nick Hewer and Karren Brady will once again assist Lord Sugar in his search to find the next business-minded teen he can mentor to their full potential.
Tasks on the BAFTA Award-winning show will include designing a new cookbook, sourcing props for the English National Opera, branding a hair-styling product and selling goods at Womad festival.
