CONTESTANTS on The Apprentice are vying to make it big in business – but their time living in the show’s swanky mansion gives them a tantalising taste of the high life.
Where is The Apprentice contestants’ house?
For the duration of their time on the show, The Apprentice’s 18 hopefuls will be living in a luxurious mansion in swanky Notting Hill, West London.
They will count as neighbours some of the capital’s most illustrious residents, including Simon Cowell, Damon Albarn and Robbie Williams.
Property website Zoopla estimates that the property has a current value of a staggering £13,137,000 – nearly eight times the average price tag for a property in Notting Hill, which stands at £1,667,494.
The impressive property is currently available to rent, but prospective tenants will need deep pockets to cover the £29,033 monthly rent.
What are the features of The Apprentice mansion?
The stunning double-fronted Victorian property includes eight bedrooms, a south-facing garden, three reception rooms and a playroom.
With over 6,400 square feet there’s plenty of room for everyone to have some space, which will hopefully prevent any huge rows between the hopefuls.
The property features colourful decor from award-winning designer Nicky Haslam and elegant furniture, including numerous sofas.
Last year, contestants spent their time on the show at a 10-bedroom home in Hampstead, north London, and in 2015 they bunked up in a Georgian townhouse in Holborn.
When is the The Apprentice 2017 on and who’s in the line-up?
After returning on October 4, The Apprentice 2017 is airing every Wednesday night on BBC One at 9.00pm, with episodes lasting an hour.
The show, which is back for its 13th series, aims to find a new apprentice for billionaire business mogul and Amstrad founder Lord Alan Sugar, who’s worth £1.4bn.
After working in teams for each of the weekly tasks, the line-up will be whittled down until we are left with the winner, who will pocket £250,000 investment from Lord Sugar.
