Sixteen ambitious candidates embarked on the challenge of becoming Lord Sugar's next business partner. Ten weeks of gruelling tasks has whittled that number down to just five. What makes them all tick? What qualities have made them survivors? What are their chances of winning the £250,000 investment?
The candidates give their assessment of their personal triumphs and failures and the lessons they have learned during the process. Not to mention the bitching, backstabbing and the blame games they have had to overcome to get this far. The programme investigates the five contenders' family backgrounds and reveals more of their characters as friends and family talk about the childhood, upbringing and personality traits that have shaped the final five into who they are today.
Nick Hewer and Karren Brady share their thoughts on the candidates' performance thus far and assess the strengths and weaknesses of each individual, explaining what qualities they believe Lord Sugar sees in the final five.
