Apprentice fans work out how long boardroom takes to film after Alan Sugar clue

Three contestants have already been at the receiving end of Lord Sugar's firing finger in the boardroom, and The Apprentice fans have now spotted a clever way to see just how long the famous boardroom scenes take to film.

Lord Sugar could be seen wearing an expensive watch during the most recent episode, which saw pharmacist Navid Sole become the third contestant to be fired.

Fans quickly spotted that his watch revealed how long the board and the contestants spent in the boardroom, with the time on Lord Sugar's watch saying 1.20pm as the meeting got underway.

However while discussing the team tasks, viewers noticed that Lord Sugar was still talking to the contestants at 5.30pm – more than four hours later.

When Navid Sole was fired from the boardroom, more time had passed again, with Lord Sugar's watch showing the time of 6.45pm – definitely a long day for the contestants and the boardroom panel.

Fans also noticed that the time of day had passed significantly too, with daytime passing into evening throughout the five hour meeting.

However this is not the first time that the long boardroom meetings have been noticed, with Lord Sugar himself addressing the long filming hours in 2019.

He also revealed that the boardroom scenes are heavily edited for the programme, telling The Sun: "We've seen it all. What you get there [on TV] is an edited version of a four or five-hour session in a boardroom.

"If you saw the rest of the four hours and 30 minutes, you'll see I don't have much patience and we don't have much tolerance and we do get a bit excited ourselves.

"Of course we're quite used to it now."

The most recent episode saw the groups mixed together, with each tasked to design and brand a non-alcoholic drink.

However, Navid Sole was accused of not contributing to the flavour of the soft drink by his teammates, and was ultimately fired in the boardroom by Lord Sugar.

The Apprentice continues next Thursday at 9pm on BBC One.
