Ready for business: the line-up of contestants for the new series of The Apprentice

A former beauty queen, a builder and a private tutor are among candidates hoping to secure Lord Alan Sugar's backing in The Apprentice.

This year, 18 contestants will be hoping to impress Lord Sugar and his aides Karren Brady and Claude Littner.

The popular BBC One show returns for its 11th series next Wednesday and in a new twist, the contestants will not be divided into male or female groups for the first show tasks.

Viewers will also be treated to a double helping of boardroom antics for the first week, with the launch episode followed by another one next Thursday. The first episode will see the newbies being tested on product creation, negotiation and selling.
