First time I've tried the junior version this year. I didn't last more than a couple of episodes. Quality was low (but what do I expect from kids). And it felt uncomfortably exploitative.

Then again, I've faded very heavily on the adult version, so I'm maybe just apprenticed out.

Does there have to be a winner? They are all nauseating twats!

Yet I am still watching it! Force of habit I suppose.

I'm surprised Lucy didn't win, she was clearly the best.

Lord Alan Sugar has confirmed that there will not be another series of Young Apprentice.

The entrepreneur took to Twitter this evening (February 7) to respond to a user's query as to whether the reality TV show would be making a return to BBC One.

There had been rumours that the broadcaster was not keen to renew Young Apprentice following poor viewing figures for the series that aired last year.

Arjun Rajyagor, Zara Brownless and Ashleigh Porter-Exley were all crowned as winners of Young Apprentice.

Sugar also confirmed that the new run of The Apprentice would air "late spring this year"

Watched the first few minutes and I'm really not sure I have the heart for this anymore. The Lordy one doesn't like soundbite/BS/clichés and all that nonsense. No he believes 'actions speak louder than words' which I will be honest now, is an expression I've never heard before, in my life.

I utterly hate this show. I used to work with people like these total fucking c-words and there wasn't a single moment of any working day when I didn't wish they would die. Lierally, I wanted them to die. Their parents were probably yuppie bastards from Thatchers big era who thought arrogance was a virtue. Their bullshit soundbites..?

So, yeah, won't be watching...

Haters gonna hate, I guess.

THE APPRENTICE 2013

Well I watched the first episode tonight and was delighted to see that this year's sorry lot look to be the biggest bunch of hateful, arrogant tossers yet. The Apprentice is a misanthrope's dream; frothing with indignation at the contestants is the highlight of my year. Literally; I don't get out much.

CHARACTERS OF NOTE: EPISODE ONE

ALEX
The first ever Welsh contestant, he looks like the son Liza Minnelli and David Gest would have had if they met 23 years ago (he's 22; I checked). Notable for sporting, by choice, bizarrely shaped eyebrows Ming the Merciless would covet. Looks like he'll be getting all lairy in episode two and swearing at posh boy Jason - GOOD. Which leads me onto...


JASON
The obligatory toff, Jason appears to have gathered up Alex's eyebrow shavings and glued them between his own. Despite never having had a job, he is chockful of bullshit and has already shown an impressive aptitude for swaggering arrogance, stating, "I just feel my effortless superiority will take me all the way." Yes Jason, all the way to the Jobcentre.


NEIL
Dominant alpha male type who virtually sabotaged Jason's stint as Project Manager by bulldozing all over him. Very competitive, seems to be a bit of a prick. As such, has potential.


LUISA
"I have the energy of a Duracell bunny, the sex appeal of Jessica Rabbit, and a brain like Einstein." And a voice like Stacey Solomon uhuhuhurrrggghh. Clearly the wilting wallflower of the group *snort* she has already demonstrated her vast brain capacity by asking Jaz who the current president of England is. I HATE HER ALREADY.


LEAH
A qualified doctor, so probably does her own collagen lip injections. Notable for her pronounced Northern Irish accent. Appears cool and collected, or cold and calculating - time will tell. Possibly one to watch.


UZMA
Notable for her big shiny noise stud (you ain't in the Spice Girls, love) and escaping being fired. That is all.


JAZ
Nauseatingly cheerful and enthusiastic school teacher who gulped the poisoned chalice of being first Project Manager for the girls and came a cropper as a result. FIRED.


More tomorrow!! Woop! I look forward to growing to hate the rest of them as much.

It was, of course, horrible to watch. Not just for the obnoxious personalities on show, but for the sheer amount of tatt that Sugar has no problem launching on the world (or at least London).

Tonight's episode seems to require an ability to do something that isn't within the realm of shouting loudly or running up and down a London street. Should be fun.

You can't give up, this is the only time we see you

Hated more of the boys (loved the high 5 - really? moment) than I did the girls surprisingly.  Like with BB now, people know the show/format so try to be and act how they think Lord Sugar wants them to and they just end up looking like massive tits.

I know, who am I kidding, I did manage to keep it on, and expect I'll watch again tonight.

I know twattery is something shoehorned in by production but they appear to have outdone themselves this time, even allowing for the obvious spoon fed bragging. So the boys barely won despite selling far more of their stock?

No real first impressions on the candidates yet, apart from being highly annoying as usual - the failed high 5 was a nice little comedy spot - who was the guy crawling to Lordsugar at the end (after they won) getting late week tactics in early!

I'll see if anyone grows on me tonight, either for likeable or unlikeable reasons. On the plus side I was reminded of former candidate Raef's appearance on 8 out of 10 cats earlier

Raef is my favourite Apprentice candidate EVER. We badly need another Raef.

Can't wait for tonight's beer task. The phrase 'couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery' springs nimbly to mind.

Oh good, a team switch already. If I was a candidate I'd suggest the team names of 'who the fuck cares' and 'what the fuck does it matter'.

I remember teams would bicker for ages about team names.

Is it just me or is 'a bitter this' a bloody awful name. Rhubarb and Riches might be worse though.

I used to go to a pub that brewed a beer called "That". After 5 pints, "a pint of That" works well. My point? "A bitter this" is a crap name.

Yeah, let's go to a pub and try and sell them a shit sounding beer without them tasting it. Blinding!

I like Uzhma's shoes though

No, that didn't happen?

They didn't take an empty bottle to a sample tasting?

That never took place?
