This year's series of The Apprentice has been full of hilarious blunders, boardroom drama and Lord Sugar's corny catchphrases. 

From creating a cruise ship experience in week one to baby food in week nine, Lord Sugar has certainly challenged the 10 candidates throughout the series. 

The candidates are now in their last two weeks, with the final four being an all-female line-up.

This week is the dreaded interviews stage and we can expect to see the final four have their CVs scrutinised and ideas grilled by a terrifying panel of entrepreneurs.

The 29-year-old describes herself as ambitious, kind and often "savage", who is there to win and expand her business.

Who is doing the interviews this year? 

Claude Littner will return for this year's interviews after not taking part in this series due to an operation. 

Claude said: "Well, I’m back! But, just for the interview stage of the process. 

"The whole team went to so much trouble to have me back. I had written off this series, but it would seem Lord Sugar and the production company had other ideas!

"It was quite funny how it came about - Alan arrived at my house one day (although he phoned me almost daily!) and he just said, 'You will do the interviews, won’t you?' and I replied, 'Yes, of course'.

"The moment it came out of my mouth I was thinking, how on earth am I actually going to do it? The truth is, by the time it came to filming I was feeling better but the team had been so kind and gone to so much trouble so I could be involved."

Mike Soutar, Linda Plant and Claudine Collins will also return and give Lord Sugar their verdict on who should be his next business partner. 

The Apprentice airs on BBC One at 9 pm on Thursdays.
