Lord Sugar confirms Covid has delayed The Apprentice until 2022

Fans of The Apprentice are set to be disappointed after Lord Sugar announced the show won’t be returning to our screens this year.

The popular BBC reality business contest has had to be pushed back yet again due to Covid, with the show originally set to air last July.

The 16th series was expected to return this summer after Lord Sugar had admitted he was disappointed that the show couldn’t be filmed in 2020.

But the pandemic has once again scuppered his ideas, meaning viewers will have to wait a little bit longer to hear him utter the famous words “you’re fired” once more.

Lord Sugar, 74, has told The Sun that the new plan is to resume filming by the end of the year.

He shared his thoughts that some people like to work while others just shirk their responsibilities and said he’ll soon find out who is who when the new series begins.

Lord Sugar also told how previous winner Carina Lepore’s bakery business had suffered during lockdown, but insisted if winners run out of his money, they don’t receive any more.
