Inside The Apprentice’s biggest backstage secrets from sex ban to toilet rules | The Sun
THE Apprentice is the most extreme hiring process out there.
Every year, potential candidates are ridiculed by their potential new business partner, Lord Sugar, and forced to compete in huge money-making tasks, while under the watchful eye of Claude Littner and Baroness Karren Brady.
But there’s much more to the show than meets the eye – and rules are put in place to keep things as professional as possible.

Chaperones are going to be watching contestants to make sure there’s not even a hint of flirting.
