The Apprentice is finally back for the first time since 2019.

Sixteen brand new entrepreneurs will be seen battling it out in the boardroom to win £250,000 worth of investment into their business.

And that investment will once again be coming from Lord Alan Sugar.

But this year, his aides on the BBC One reality series will be different.

Baroness Karren Brady will return to help Lord Sugar in his quest for another business investment.

She'll be joined by former The Apprentice winner and entrepreneur Tim Campbell.

Tim, 44, won the first series of the show back in 2005, earning himself a £100,000-a-year job working with Lord Sugar.

His appearance on the show is in place of Claude Littner after he had to pull out of the 16th series.

Claude has appeared as Lord Sugar's aide on The Apprentice since 2015 after originally appearing during the interviewing stage.

But due to injuries sustained in a cycling accident, the 72-year-old businessman has had to take time away.

Claude has been having to learn to walk again after injuring his right leg so badly that he has required nine surgeries to date and doctors initially thought they may have to amputate following the accident in April while riding an electric bike.

The former chief executive of Tottenham Hotspur and long-time friend and business associate of Lord Sugar said last year that the accident happened about a mile away from his home in Mill Hill, London.

Despite missing this series, Claude said he will return as soon as he is able to, commenting: "There’s no ifs and buts about it."

Lord Sugar said when the announcement on Claude's replacement was made: "Claude has been part of the series since the beginning and is leaving an important boardroom chair to temporarily fill. I’ve been speaking to him regularly about his recovery, and of course, hope we see him back in the boardroom very soon.

"In the meantime, my former winner Tim Campbell will step into Claude’s seat and be my eyes and ears as the candidates face a tough set of business challenges in the upcoming series."
