Lord Sugar has confirmed that the Apprentice is to return on BBC One this May.
The multi-millionaire businessman announced the news via his Twitter page on 26 April, posting details of the show's launch.
Sugar and his aides, Karen Brady and Nick Hewer, will return for the seventh series of the show, which tries to find the country's next budding entrepreneur.
The winner will land an all-new prize of £250,000, which will be invested by Sugar into the business of their choice.
The programme will return to its usual springtime slot, with episode one airing on Tuesday 10 May at 9pm on BBC One.
Episode two will follow on Wednesday 11 May at the same time and the series will continue to air every Wednesday for 10 weeks.
Stella English won last year's series, beating rivals Liz Locke, Stuart Baggs and Chris Bates to become Lord Sugar's apprentice.
