Junior Apprentice gets a May start date on BBC One

BBC’s Junior Apprentice has been given a start date.

The new spin-off series, which will feature contestants aged 16 and 17 only, is due to screen on BBC on Wednesday 12 May.

Up for grabs is not the high profile job of the original series, but a £25,000 cash prize which would be put towards the winning contestant’s future plans.

The show will feature an even split of five boys and five girls and is set to run for six weeks kicking off at 9pm on BBC One.

The series was commissioned by the BBC last year, with Apprentice boss Lord Sugar assigning top businesswoman Karren Brady and Nick Hewer to keep an eye on the youngsters.
