Is King Charles star signing 20th series of The Apprentice?

Lord Sugar is setting his sights on none other than King Charles as his star signing for The Apprentice's special 2026 series.

The 74-year-old entrepreneur is determined to make the anniversary edition of the BBC show a memorable one, and he believes that securing royalty for the special event is the way to go.

Having committed to hosting The Apprentice until he reaches two decades in the hot seat, Lord Sugar is on the lookout for entrepreneurs eager to vie for his £250,000 investment. 

Lord Sugar is contemplating the possibility of an All Stars season. 

However, he noted that former Loose Woman Saira Khan, who was a finalist on the inaugural season, might be deemed 'too old' for a return to the boardroom.

As the 18th series of The Apprentice kicks off this Thursday, Lord Sugar is already contemplating the grand plans for the 20th year. 

Lord Sugar pondered the participation of past contestants, expressing uncertainty about former finalists like Saira Khan, who lost to the first winner, Tim Campbell, in 2005. 

Lord Sugar emphasized that his iconic one-liners and off-the-cuff jokes are not scripted by writers.
