• One Celebrity will earn more money for their chosen charity than any other in the history of the show
Celebrity Apprentice Australia will make its way onto screens Sunday, May 23rd at 7.00pm on Channel Nine and 9Now.
Viewers will be invited into the boardroom of CEO Lord Alan Sugar, the respected – and feared – British billionaire and business magnate synonymous with the show after starring in all 15 seasons of The Apprentice UK.
Lord Sugar has made his presence felt down under, guided by his two business advisors – Boost Juice pioneer and investor Janine Allis, and fashion designer and entrepreneur Lorna Jane Clarkson.
They will oversee 14 Celebrities as they compete to become the next Celebrity Apprentice. They will use every trick in the book as they each fight to raise money for a charity close to their heart, with the winner of the series earning a further $100,000 in prize money.
This season will be packed with boardroom showdowns, clashes of egos, plenty of twists, Celebrity guest cameos, and tasks for the Celebrities to conquer.
One Celebrity will also make history – earning more money for their chosen charity than any other in the history of the show.
