THE winner of this year’s Apprentice will fill in Lord Sugar’s job applications while he watches daytime TV, the BBC has admitted.
The Amstrad tycoon lost his last job more than a year ago and will employ the victor to trawl job sites, work on his interview skills and just generally for company.
The Apprentice producer Emma Bradford said: “The winner will get one-on-one time with a business leader while he shouts at The Wright Stuff while wearing monogrammed silk pyjamas and tapping cigar ash into his Cheerios.
“We’re looking for a bright, creative mind who can make the Amstrad E-m@iler look good on a CV and instantly identify which guests have been on Jeremy Kyle before.”
The new series’ tasks have been changed to match Lord Sugar’s situation, with contestants challenged to create a successful national radio and TV campaign to persuade Nick Hewer to lend them twenty quid.
