The Apprentice: Villans hit the boardroom

It's one of the highlights of the year when it comes to television, and tonight The Apprentice returns to our screens for a 13th series.

The show provides the ultimate test of entrepreneurial nous, and many of the candidates' attributes are relevant on a football pitch and vice-versa.

Therefore, we've put a few of our own players forward that we think could make the grade and give Lord Sugar some food for thought in the boardroom.
