Fans will be able to watch the show over two episodes from Thursday 7 March on BBC One. Red Nose Day will then air a week later on Friday 15 March. Lord Sugar will, of course, be joined by his trusty aides Baroness Brady and Claude Littner. Alan shared the news on Twitter, writing: "BREAKING: New Celebrity Apprentice coming to your screens 7th March BBC-1. All for Comic Relief."

In 2017, the celebrity version of The Apprentice made headlines after Lord Sugar fired Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, which led to a feud between the pair. At a press launch for the next series, Lord Sugar boldly revealed: "I think actually it was me who launched his television career. No seriously, I'm being absolutely serious. I knew him from the Mirror. He went from being the editor of the Mirror, he got fired from there for his famous front-page thing and he wanted to do something in TV. He actually phoned me up and when he heard that Celebrity Apprentice was on, he said, 'Please can I do it?' And that's the first time he appeared on television. And then afterwards I coached him how to win the American Apprentice; seriously, you should have been a fly on the wall."
