Lord Sugar recently wrapped up filming for the upcoming series of The Apprentice and it’s now been claimed the BBC is keen for two more batches of episodes in the near future.

The Apprentice sees some of Britain’s brightest business hopefuls fight it out for the chance to go into business with Lord Sugar, 74.

But the series was notably absent from the BBC’s schedule last year after it was unable to go ahead due to Covid.

Luckily, fans of the show are soon set to get their fix of the boardroom antics very soon as the show will be back for series 16, set to air in early 2022.

It seems there will be even more on the way as according to reports two further series of the show are slated to come back-to-back after this.

A TV source told The Sun: ‘BBC bosses like what they’ve seen on the upcoming series and want two more.

‘The Apprentice was a big miss in the schedules last year, which they think will be reflected in the ratings.

‘So they want to strike while the iron’s hot and tie Lord Sugar down for two more series in quick succession, which they hope will have more of an international feel now lockdown restrictions are gradually lifting.’

It comes after Lord Sugar previously stated he wanted to make it to 20 years of the show before hanging up his boardroom boots.

Speaking earlier this year, he told PA: ‘I said last year that I wanted to do 20 years. We would have been doing series 16 this year and I was happy to do four more.

‘But of course, it is the BBC who will decide if they wish to do it.

‘I fully understand they are in charge but if they wanted to do it, I think 20 years is a nice round figure.’

Lord Sugar recently took the show down under, to film the sixth series of Celebrity Apprentice in Australia.

The star was criticised for showing off his view from the 21st floor of The Sheraton in Sydney, where he was staying in order to isolate for two weeks before production started.

The Apprentice returns next year to BBC One.
