Celebrity Apprentice Australia: When will it air and who is on it?

Celebrity Apprentice Australia will officially hit our TV screens on Sunday May 23, and is promising to be a 'drama-filled' and 'record-breaking' season of the popular series.

British billionaire and business magnate CEO Lord Alan Sugar has been the star of the show in the UK for 15 seasons, before joining the Channel Nine edition in 2021.

Guided by his two trusted business advisors - Boost Juice pioneer and investor Janine Allis, and fashion designer and entrepreneur Lorna Jane Clarkson - they will oversee 14 celebrities as they compete to become the next Celebrity Apprentice.

They will use every trick in the book as they each fight to raise money for a charity close to their heart, with the winner of the series earning a further $100,000 in prize money.

If the promo of the show is anything to go by, there will be dramatic boardroom showdowns and plenty of twists.

MAFS star Martha dubbed 'Kmart Kardashian' by 'new boss'

Lord Alan Sugar is introduced in the clip and his first comment is to former Married At First Sight star Martha Kalifatidis, saying, "They call you the Kmart Kardashian."

While we don't see Martha's response, she appears shocked.

And Nova's Michael 'Wippa' Wipfli is heard saying under his breath, "This is a little bit intense," with Alan looking unimpressed.
