Tom Allen announced as the new host of The Apprentice: You’re Fired

The Apprentice: You’re Fired is the companion show to The Apprentice, during which the most recently fired candidate is joined by comedians, celebrity fans and business gurus to discuss their recent elimination.

Each week, Allen will attempt to find out what went wrong for the unsuccessful candidates, giving his own unique take on events with his signature acerbic wit.

A self-confessed Apprentice super-fan, Allen and the panel will look at the week’s biggest wins and fatal mishaps in front of a live studio audience.

The series will be produced by Sacha Baron Cohen and Andrew Newman’s company Spelthorne Community Television
