The firing line-up of TV series Apprentice.

Byline: KATIE FITZPATRICK

THE Apprentice is back for it's 14th series, bringing with it 16 new candidates with their wheelie suitcases and hilariously lofty claims.

The hit BBC show is back on BBC One at 9pm on Wednesday, October 3, as budding entrepreneurs are put through their paces by Lord Alan Sugar, Baroness Karren Brady and Claude Littner.

In the series, Lord Sugar sends the candidates to Malta tasked with buying nine items at the lowest possible prices, puts them in Glasgow to sell art and has them launch a budget airline.

Last year, the show was won by James White and Sarah Lynn, the first time two finalists were joint winners.

This year's candidates come from a broad range of backgrounds, all with a passionate desire to secure a PS250,000 investment and win a partnership with Lord Sugar, pictured.
