The BBC today have officially announced details of Series 3 of The Apprentice UK.
Here is the Introduction
Highlights of the Introduction include...
16 applicants this series.
Sir Alan is firing on all cylinders and has set the two teams some of the toughest assignments ever seen on the hit show – including two international tasks.
Weekly tasks are tougher than ever, examples are having to sell British farm produce at a French farmers' market, design accessories for dogs, create a new brand of trainers, sell art photography at a trendy gallery, produce sweets to sell at London Zoo and compete with the likes of Starbucks and Costa to sell the most coffee on a busy high street.
In the first episode Sir Alan makes it quite clear who's in charge and what he's looking for: "I am looking for someone who is drop dead shrewd ... but this is the job interview from hell."
The Apprentice online is back and will see a hive of activity designed, developed and managed by FremantleMedia's Interactive division to give a truly cross-platform experience. The site will provide a full service delivering fans the opportunity to keep up and delve deeper in to the show with news and images, plus exclusive behind-the-scenes video clips, delivered both online and on mobile.
And, for the first time, The Apprentice will have its own weekly podcast.
Each week bbc.co.uk/apprentice will offer breaking news, video interviews, previews, teaser and highlight clips from the show coupled with the chance to view exclusive behind-the-scenes content and extended footage that producers couldn't fit into the BBC One show, keeping fans completely up to date.
There will also be an exclusive weekly column from one of last year's most memorable candidates, Jo Cameron, who will be commenting on the tasks, new candidates and her recollections of the Boardroom.
---------------------------------------It really does seem they are pushing the boat out for this series, as its moving to BBC ONE.
Sir Alan seems he is good as ever! Some of the quotes in the Introduction are hilarious.I love the sound of the weekly podcast, much improved website with unseen footage, its something a show like The Apprentice has been crying out for, also its much more for us to get our teeth into!
Jo Camerons column will be a good read as Jo never lets the punters down at all.
Mobile coverage also, I didn't expect that. Now where is my mobile and where do I sign up!
Next entry is on the Girls Team...
