Just a heads up. The Apprentice is back for a new series starting 10th May. I for one am looking forward it. Not sure if it's being broadcast in HD. Always been an enjoyable series. This time the winner gets a £250,000 business investment rather than a role in his business.
BBC - BBC One Programmes - The Apprentice, Series 7, £250 Business Start Up
The stakes are raised higher than ever in this series of The Apprentice, as this time there is no six-figure salary job on offer. Instead, the sixteen candidates are vying for one life changing opportunity: £250,000 investment to start their own company, with Lord Sugar as their business partner.
Lord Sugar wastes no time showing the candidates he means business, using the first task to challenge his potential partners' entrepreneurial skills. Each team are given £250 to invest in fresh fruit and vegetables, and Lord Sugar makes it clear that he expects a high return.
Packed off to New Covent Garden Market, the teams race to buy the best produce at the cheapest price and set to work adding value to their haul by making juices, fruit salads and soups, and pasta to tempt London's hungry workforce. With the pressure on to exploit both the lucrative breakfast and lunch trade, it's not long before the tension rises and the blame game begins.
The highly competitive candidates desperately attempt to sell their stock, bring back the highest return and avoid the firing line in the boardroom.
But for one candidate, business dreams are crushed as they are the first to hear the dreaded words 'You're fired'.
BBC - BBC One Programmes - The Apprentice, Series 7, Mobile Phone Application
An early morning delivery sends the candidates into the fast-paced world of technology. Lord Sugar challenges the teams to think big and go global as they must design, launch and promote a new mobile phone application.
In the battle for downloads, the teams must create a mobile app and pitch it to three influential technology websites to become 'App of the Day', as well as attempt to convince a huge crowd of bloggers and software experts at a major gaming fair to support the application and increase downloads.
With their apps downloadable for 24 hours, a dramatic result leads to a fierce boardroom battle, and one more candidate faces Lord Sugar's immortal words: 'You're fired'.
BBC - BBC Two Programmes - The Apprentice: You're Fired, Series 7, Episode 1
With the prize of a partnership with Lord Sugar, 16 candidates have gone into battle. But who is the first to bite the dust? Dara O Briain hears what the one who didn't get away has to say, as they are grilled by Innocent co-founder Richard Reed and journalist Kate Spicer.

Dara O Briain meets the candidate who got a slap from an app when their mobile phone creation failed to set the world on fire. Getting to the bottom of what went wrong are Lord Sugar's aide Karren Brady and comedian Andy Parsons.
Disappointed that there is no baggs wannabe.
