Lord Alan Sugar’s search for his next business partner is about to reach its conclusion as viewers rush to their television screens to watch the final of this year’s The Apprentice. In what first started as a boardroom filled with 18 budding entrepreneurs, two now remain as they battle it out for £250,000.
This season has been filled with plenty of laugh-out-loud and cringey business decisions. Whether it be the green staining Venom skincare brand or the mushy worm-filled dog food, fans have experienced plenty of moments to remember.
Marnie Swindells, a court advocate from London, and Rochelle Anthony, a hair salon owner from Bedfordshire, are the two remaining candidates vying for not just Lord Sugar’s investment but business expertise.
A preview of the episode reads: “The last two must launch their business, create a new brand for their company, produce a digital billboard, direct and edit a television advertisement and design a metaverse, before pitching to Lord Sugar and industry experts at a black-tie event.”
Here is everything you need to know about The Apprentice 2023 final and how you can watch it live or on-demand. Also included is a list of all the show’s past big winners, including Harpreet Kaur last year.
