Lord Sugar summons the candidates to an 18th-century tidal mill in the heart of London's East End. For the third task, they manufacture and sell upmarket doughnuts to both a corporate client and the public. One half of each group must fathom out flavours, while the others set off to bag a bespoke order from the corporate world. For one team, a decision to add spice turns up the heat, while on the other, toying with teabags sees tension brewing. Sugar then decides which candidate is past their sell-by date in the boardroom.
The Apprentice sees fourteen candidates, competing against each other for a position at Lord Alan Sugar's company. Each week the candidates take part in a task set by Lord Sugar. Each team will have a Team Leader who managers that group for that task.
The team that performs the best will win a reward and avoid the boardroom. The losing team will be summoned to the boardroom where their team leader will be forced to pick two people in their team who we join them in the boardroom and a chance to be fired.
After twelve weeks Lord Sugar will be left with his Apprentice, who will work for him at a salary of Â£100,000. Lord Sugar is very busy so he has Nick and Karen, who act as his eyes and ears, to inform him of what's going on.
