Sugar replied: "NO BBC HAVE DECIDED TO STOP IT."



The series, which ran for three series between 2010 and 2012 and starred aides Nick Hewer and Karren Brady, offered teenagers between the ages of 16 and 17 the opportunity to win an investment for their business plans.

There had been rumours that the broadcaster was not keen to renew Young Apprentice following poor viewing figures for the series that aired last year.

Arjun Rajyagor, Zara Brownless and Ashleigh Porter-Exley were all crowned as winners of Young Apprentice.

Sugar also confirmed that the new run of The Apprentice would air "late spring this year".
