A group of candidates on The Apprentice will make history in Thursday night’s show.

In upcoming scenes for week six, Lord Sugar will task the two teams to pitch a cereal brand to some of the biggest industry buyers and retailers in the UK.

The two separate groups with design and create a new breakfast cereal aimed at six, seven and eight-year-olds.

One lucky team will secure a deal with a popular supermarket and make a deal for a staggering 200,000 units for a three month selling period – which has never been done on the show before.

Lord Sugar’s trusted aide Tim Campbell says: ‘The good thing is that brands like this supermarket have been at the heart of communities for generations.

‘All of us know about getting some form of frozen item whether it’s a dessert or something that you want after an interesting night on the town that you put in the oven the next day. 

‘But I think the good thing is that in this where retail is being so heavily challenged at the moment with the economic conditions, it’s great that The Apprentice is able to highlight opportunities for our candidates to create enterprises and initiatives and projects which are taken up and positively reviewed by some of the UK’s most respected business brands. 

‘In addition to this supermarket, there are some other very well-known high street retailers who are also part of what we’re doing, and we are really pleased that they want to be associated with this show, which I think is a great testament for us.’

It comes after fans of The Apprentice slammed the show, bemoaning a ‘fake’ format and saying they have uncovered a ‘clue’ that makes them believe it could be staged. 

The long-running BBC show sees Lord Sugar test the nerves and brains of the hungriest hopefuls in the business world as they compete to win a £250,000 investment from the businessman.

Despite its popularity, eagle-eyed viewers spotted a hint on last night’s episode that appeared to indicate that the show does not stick to its script.

On the show’s Thursday night airing, the narrator said the secretary called at 4am to inform the contestants that they had 20 minutes to get ready and leave to meet Lord Sugar at Battersea Power Station.

However, some viewers said this detail takes away from the reality of the show, pointing out that 20 minutes is an extremely short amount of time to look their best when waking up at 4am.

They observed that the call for the house to get ready can come in the early hours of the morning, but the sun is shining by the time they depart, when it should still be dark outside. 

Pointing this detail out, viewers wrote: ‘One the guys gets a phone call at 4AM and it’s still dark to say the cars will be outside in 20 minutes, 20 minutes later there walking out and it’s broad daylight, someone’s got timing well out of sync!’

‘So @Lord_Sugar secretary calls the house at 4am..20 mins for those boys, let alone the girls to get ready & yet it’s daylight in the cars.’ 

On Thursday night’s episode, Onyeka Nweze was the latest candidate to be fired from after her team lost out in a big-money challenge.

The candidates were tasked with launching a new Formula E team before pitching it for sponsorship, and stunned the boardroom by securing the largest sum in the show’s history.

Multi-million-pound negotiations were put in jeopardy when disastrous car designs were unveiled, and questionable branding was revealed.

However, Lord Sugar was left in shock when the winning team gained sponsorships valued at £38.7 million.

As her team lost out, Lord Sugar noted that Onyeka’s ‘lack of ethos’ during the task continued to be a concern, especially after her pitches to bankers failed to win them investments.

The Apprentice continues Thursday at 9pm on BBC One and BBC iplayer
