A cake company owner, an online fashion entrepreneur and the owner of a novelty gift company will be among the 18 candidates hoping to avoid the firing line when The Apprentice returns to television.

Lord Alan Sugar will send 18 new hopefuls hoping to become his business partner to sell collectables for as much money as possible under the watchful eye of his advisers Claude Littner and Karren Brady.

Over 12 weeks Lord Sugar will whittle down the candidates until he chooses one to become his business partner and receive a £250,000 investment.

After one team wastes time at the valuers while another fails to sell their products in shops, one entrepreneur will be the first hear the dreaded words "You're Fired!" in tonight's episode.

In the show, marketing agency owner Paul Sullivan will make a successful bid to be project manager of one of the teams after declaring his passion for antiques comes from watching Bargain Hunt.

However, one of the teams finds themselves without their crucial stock on a visit to an antique dealer when they fail to tell the van driver of a change of destination.

:: Series 12 of The Apprentice starts on BBC One on October 6 at 9pm.
