And while temperatures will rise in Lord Sugar’s boardroom, it seems pulses will also be racing for a different reason this year.
Two of the contestants, Jade English and James White, reportedly started up a “steamy fling” while filming for this season’s business-based reality show.
PR and Marketing guru Jade reportedly struck up a romance with James from the moment they met, their attraction immediate as they filmed for the popular BBC show.

A source told The Sun: “Tension had been building between James and Jade during filming. There was clearly an attraction from the beginning.
“They’re both young and attractive people and they really got along during the process. They couldn’t resist getting to know each other that bit better during their time in the house.
“Afterwards they kept things going for a while, but relations have cooled off between them since filming ended.”

James, 26, is an IT recruitment firm owner and lives in Birmingham.
He is apparently determined to outshine everyone, saying: “Intimidation motivates me. I want to be bigger and more successful than anyone else.”
