The Apprentice (UK series thirteen)
|The Apprentice UK|
Series Thirteen of The Apprentice (UK), a British reality television series, began broadcasting in the UK during 2017 from 4 October to 17 December on BBC One. The scheduling for this series was purely done to match previous series which had been moved to Late Autumn, in order to avoid major sporting and political events being broadcast within the UK. Eighteen candidates took part, naming their teams Vitality and Graphene, with James White and Sarah Lynn both winning the series together, the first time in the show's history when more than one candidate won a series.
Two specials aired alongside it towards its final weeks, both being new editions - "The Final Five" on 8 December, and "Why I Fired Them" on 14 December.
