THE Apprentice returned with the usual mix of drama and huge personalities.
But which candidate was fired and when can viewers get their next fix of boardroom action? Here’s all you need to know…
Who was fired from The Apprentice 2017 and what happened?
Danny Grant was the first candidate to be fired from The Apprentice 2017 following a failed stint as task manager.
With the teams split between men and women and given the task of selling burgers to both traders and members of the public, the women made a profit but the men made a loss, sealing their fate as losers of the challenge.
Lord Sugar made his disappointment with the men’s team clear, branding their performance of the day as “diabolical”.
Danny came to blows in the boardroom with Charles Burns and the 32-year-old business owner has since lashed out and said it’s Charles who should have been fired.
Grant told the Press Association: “It’s hard to say because I was only there for a week but I think Charles is definitely playing some sort of game and I think that’s why we maybe didn’t see eye to eye.
“He definitely should have been fired, I should have stayed.”
Who are the remaining The Apprentice 2017 candidates?
There are now 17 contestants left vying to impress Lord Sugar:
- James White
- Ross Fretten
- Jeff Wan
- Andrew Brady
- Jade English

When is the The Apprentice 2017 on?
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.
