What does The Apprentice winner get, what's the prize money and do the champions go into business with Alan Sugar?

EACH season, The Apprentice candidates give the 12 weeks of competition their all as they try and win each challenge as a team.

But what do the ultimate winners get? And how involved is Lord Sugar? Here is everything we know…

What does The Apprentice winner get?

By winning The Apprentice, the chosen candidate lands a cash prize from Lord Sugar.

The money can be used to put their business plan into action and push their company to the next level.

Last year Lord Sugar shocked viewers by choosing two winners, Sarah Lynn and James White.

The prize was previously a job within one of his businesses but it changed to its current incarnation in series seven back in 2011.

What is the prize money and do the winners go into business with Lord Sugar?

The Apprentice winner receives £500,000 from Lord Sugar for triumphing in the series.

Last year, with two winners, the millionaire gave both of them a half share of the prize money to invest in their respective businesses.

As well as receiving the prize money, the winners go into a 50/50 partnership with Lord Sugar.

The businessman will mentor the winners to help them and their businesses reach their full potential.

This year, Sarah Lynn has a confectionery business while James runs an IT recruitment company.


What time is The Apprentice on BBC One?

The Apprentice is a hit BBC reality show and its 14th series will conclude tonight, (Sunday December 16) at 9pm on BBC One.

Each series of the programme aims to find a new apprentice for billionaire business mogul and Amstrad founder Lord Alan Sugar, who's worth £1.4bn.

It aims to recreate the toughest of business environments and tasks for its set of contestants, but it is often very funny due to the incompetence and arrogance of the competitors.

After working in teams for each of the weekly tasks, the line-up has been whittled down to just two finalists, Sian Gabbidon and Camilla Ainsworth, who must pitch their business idea in front of Lord Sugar and a room full of industry experts in tonight's final.
