The first episode of The Apprentice 2024 will air at 9pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer and is already set to see plenty of arguments between the candidates.

The synopsis on the Radio Times reads: "The hunt is on for Lord Sugar's next business partner and this year's candidates kick-off proceedings in the breathtaking Scottish Highlands.
