"Sixteen candidates, two eagle-eyed advisors and one self-made millionaire. Sir Alan Sugar is back to test the nerves and brains of the hungriest hopefuls in the business world."

Every week, those on the receiving end of the dreaded pointed finger will be on 5 live to talk about the horrifying experience.

Hosted by Richard Bacon, The Apprentice on 5 live  is part of Matthew Bannister's programme (Thursdays from 10am).
