After a two-year hiatus, Lord Sugar is back in the boardroom to puncture the inflated egos of another group of British entrepreneurs. But which of the remaining 15 contestants will be next to file their P45? Find out with our below guide on how to watch The Apprentice 2022 episode 2 online, which you can stream 100% FREE on BBC iPlayer.
*Warning: episode 1 spoilers ahead*
UK viewers have obviously missed the schadenfreude of seeing the 'best' business brains in the UK falling flat on their smug faces, because the inaugural episode of The Apprentice 2022 was watched by more than 4.6 million people.
And the back-biting, high-pressured drama didn’t disappoint as the boys’ team took on the girls to produce a marketing campaign for a luxury cruise liner. Project Managers Kathryn and Ashkay both alienated their underlings by refusing to take on board any feedback, but it was the boys’ team that was eventually sunk by a godawful logo that Lord Sugar described as the worst he’d ever seen.
This time the contestants are tasked with designing an electric toothbrush and an accompanying app aimed at children. Kids stuff, right? The preview suggests that the endeavour is something of a disaster. “I’m so bloody disappointed with the lot of you,” Lord Sugar laments as the teams grapple with imaging tech and the interactive app.
Who will come out sparkling and who will get the most plaque…sorry, flack…from Sugar and his business aides? Find out below as we explain how to watch The Apprentice 2022 episode 2 online from anywhere this week.

How to watch The Apprentice: You're Fired
Comedian Tom Allen is back on hosting duties for The Apprentice: You're Fired, the sister-show that's almost as catty as the real thing.
You're Fired follows each episode of The Apprentice, airing at 10pm GMT every Thursday on BBC Two. Remember, you can also watch the half-hour show FREE on BBC iPlayer, either live or on-demand.
Tom Allen and a rotating panel of guests will roast and rehabilitate each week's unwanted candidate, who'll get a flavour of what the public really thinks of their antics on the show.
It's always packed with unseen footage, bloopers and suspiciously generous testimonials from boardroom frenemies.
