The Apprentice is finally back for its 2023 series, as Lord Alan Sugar puts 18 brand new candidates to the test with the offer of an £250,000 investment on the table.

As per usual, the cast is filled with big aspirations and even bigger egos, as the contestants vie to impress not only the main boss, but also his trusted aides, who follow them along every step of the way during their challenges.

Last year, Claude Littner – who’s been on the BBC programme as Lord Sugar’s advisor in 2015 and has also been on every series during the interview stage of the competition – was replaced by Tim Campbell MBE, the first ever winner.

Claude suffered serious injuries following a horrific bike accident, resulting in him having to undergo nine surgeries and learn how to walk again.

So will he be appearing in the latest season?

During the 2022 series of The Apprentice, Claude wasn’t present in the boardroom as a result of his accident, but did return for the interview stage of the competition, when the remaining candidates were grilled over their business proposals.

This year, he does make a return to the boardroom, making his comeback in the first episode of the show.

He’ll take his place back by Lord Sugar’s side in episode one, with Karren Brady on the other end of the tycoon.

However, he won’t be present in every episode, as he’ll only be appearing in two – the season premiere, and the interview challenge.

Speaking to and other media at a recent press conference, Lord Sugar said of Claude’s absence and replacement: ‘Obviously it’s been a great journey starting with [former aide] Nick Hewer and then Claude.

‘Unfortunately, Claude suffered some medical issues and so I was asked to think of someone else – and who better than somebody who’s actually been through the process?

‘So it was a bit of a no-brainer really, because when it comes to making excuses like these candidates do, you’ve got Tim there, who’s been there, done that, seen it and heard it all.’

Karren recently opened up about how Claude coped with the bickering candidates on this season of The Apprentice, revealing he went to extreme measures to take a break from their squabbling.

‘I know Claude said that the bickering got so bad, I saw him at the end of the very first day and he literally had to lay down in a dark room,’ she recalled.

‘He said it was really really bad, they were really at each other.’

The Apprentice returns tonight at 9pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
