This years batch of The Apprentice contestants have finally been announced and Claude Littner is not impressed.

The 70-year-old business executive, who acts as Lord Alan Sugars aide on the BBC series, revealed that he finds the fresh intake pretty grating and has promised viewers that they too, will agree with him.

Normally, Im completely dispassionate. I watch the candidates day in day out and I dont really care, Claude told at an exclusive press screening.

However, this year I found them incredibly irritating and as you go through, youll find them irritating as well, I guarantee it.

Oh, we have a feeling well be filled to the brim with rage in no time after watching their questionable decision making.

The first episode of the 2019 series will see the 16 candidates flown out to Cape Town in South Africa to set up and run a bespoke tour – ranging from a safair tour and wine tasting.



Among the pack includes 19-year-old librarian Lottie Lion, pillow salesman Thomas Skinner, and sports agent Dean Ahmad.

Lord Sugar will once again be joined by Claude and Karren Brady in his attempt to find his next business partner, admitting at the press screening that sometimes wannabe reality stars do make it onto the show.

Theres no question of a doubt that some people do come on it for the wrong reasons but nevertheless we kind of weed them out throughout the course of the process.

He continued: We sort them out pretty quickly. Not many slip through the net but we do get a couple.

There are easier ways to get on TV than this process, Karren added.
