The Apprentice returns for its 16th series tonight following a two year hiatus, featuring a new aide to Lord Sugar, Tim Campbell – here’s everything you need to know about the businessman. 

The long-running BBC show is finally back, with another crop of contestants looking to impress Lord Sugar enough to win investment in their business plan from the man himself.

However, things look slightly different this series as usual aide Claude Littner will be absent from the programme.

While Baroness Karren Brady will remain in her role to keep an eye on all the candidates for Lord Sugar, Littner is being replaced by the show’s first-ever winner Campbell for series 16.

Littner explained he was forced to back out after getting caught up in a bike accident not long before filming on the latest series started.

‘I had a cycling accident shortly before filming @bbcapprentice,’ he shared last year. ‘I was hospitalised and unable to be part of this year’s series. Good news… I am well on the road to recovery.’

But who is his replacement and when did he win the hit show?

Who is The Apprentice judge Tim Campbell?

Timothy Campbell MBE was the winner of the first-ever series of The Apprentice.

He’s hails from East London, having attended secondary school in Forest Gate, Newham, before attending Middlesex University, where he later graduated with a degree in psychology

Campbell worked as a Senior Planner within the Strategy and Service Development directorate of London Underground, before he applied for the show.

He became Project Director of Lord Sugar’s company Amstrad’s new Health & Beauty division after being hired as a result of his win.

Campbell stayed at Amstrad after the end of his original 12-month contract, but in March 2007, after two years at the company, he left to set up a perfume business but this was later abandoned.

He went on to have further success and was made an MBE back in 2012, for Services to Enterprise Culture, having worked extensively in helping with social enterprise.

In 2016, Campbell set up a digital marketing agency called Marketing Runners Ltd with Derin Cag.

When did Tim Campbell win The Apprentice?

Tim won The Apprentice back in 2005, when it first began on the BBC.

He beat off competition from former Loose Women panellist Saira Khan, who finished as runner-up.

At the time, contestants battled to win a £100,000-a-year job working for Lord Sugar at his company.

Shortly afterwards, it was commissioned for a second series and has been running on the broadcaster ever since.

Campbell appeared in the franchise once more in a special episode prior to the second series, entitled ‘Tim in the Firing Line’ – documenting his first year with Lord Sugar.

The Apprentice airs tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
