The Apprentice is in full swing as teams compete to impress Lord Sugar by making the most amount of money with their tasks – which so far have included selling boating experiences to holidaymakers and creating tasty bao buns to sell to the masses. While both tasks saw each team make a profit – what's the most a team has ever made on the show? Find out here…

Back in 2019, Lord Alan Sugar was left shocked when a team brought in the show's biggest ever profit, making an incredible £1.2million in an electric bike challenge, while the other team made just over £423,000.

The leader of the team was Iasha Masood, who based the bike around a client named 'Sophisticated Sarah', aiming their bike invention towards to 'Yummy Mummy' market. The group made a total of £1,232,810.

Reacting to the win at the time, one person wrote: "I can’t believe they made that amount of money on sophisticated Sarah," while another person added: "We all mocked Sophisticated Sarah but apparently she sells. Over a million! #TheApprentice."

Alan was very impressed

At the time, Alan was deeply impressed after Claude Littner told him about the team's progress, telling them: "Wow. Wow. One million, well done Iasha. You've certainly stepped up a gear, that's for sure." He then treated the winning team to a go-kart experience.

In this season, Claude has sadly been missing from much of the show due to illness. Explaining Claude's absence, Lord Alan Sugar explained: "Unfortunately, Claude suffered some medical issues and so I was asked to think of someone else."

Claude suffered a bike accident back in 2021, and underwent nine surgeries after his accident which occurred near his home in Mill Hill, London.
