Lord Sugar has revealed the 12 candidates that will take part in this year's Young Apprentice.
Six boys and six girls, aged between 16 and 17, will battle it out in the boardroom competition in an effort to win the £25,000 prize fund from Lord Sugar.
The contestants hoping to prove that theyre the business tycoon of tomorrow include 16-year-old fashion designer Gbemi Okunlola, published author Elizabeth Lizie Magee and horticulturalist Ben Fowler.
Footballer Hannah Richards is also taking part, alongside Iraqi-born Haya Al Dlame, farming daughter Hayley Forrester and Member of Youth Parliament, Mahamed Awale.
Film buff Zara Brownless completes the girls team, with scuba diving Harry Hitchens, Irish James McCullagh, polo-playing Harry Maxwell and gym fanatic Lewis Roman making up the numbers of the boys side.
The teenagers will share a mansion in ultra-exclusive St Johns Wood. They will be set tasks by Lord Sugar which include creating an online video game, launching a deodorant brand and selling ice cream on the streets.
Sugar offered a warning to the new crop of contestants, saying:
"You are young, don't try and pretend like you know it all because believe me, it'll be embarrassing.
Lord Sugars advisors, PR man Nick Hewer and football boss Karren Brady, will return to watch over the candidates and offer advice.
Young Apprentice returns on Monday 24 October at 9pm on BBC One.
