Series Overview[ edit ] Following the success of the first series, the BBC decided to commission additional episodes of The Apprentice, with Alan Sugar opting to returning to front and aid in production of the programme.
Alongside Sugar, Nick Hewer and Margaret Mountford returned to resume their roles from the previous series.
Along with new episodes, the broadcaster also ordered for the creation of a companion discussion show to be aired on BBC Three. Given the title of The Apprentice: As with the first series, production staff and researchers went through applications made by those who sought to participate in the programme, until around fourteen candidates, consisting of the same balanced mix of genders, were informed that they had landed a place in the final line-up for the second series.
In the first task, the men named their team Invicta, while the women named their team Velocity. Like the previous series, the candidates faced a charity-based task, which this time featured a reward before its use was discontinued in future episodes.
Michelle Dewberrywho became the eventual winner of this series,  would briefly take up a post under Sugar following its conclusion, but leave in September following a series of personal problems.
Staff eventually reviewed the format after the production and broadcast of the second series, which led to eventual changes when work began on the third series.May 27, · If you watch this at work, one of you will get fired.
