Who are The Apprentice 2017 interviewers? Claude Littner, Claudine Collins, Linda Plant and Mike Soutar

Alan Sugar's interviewers – Claude Littner, Claudine Collins, Linda Plant and Mike Soutar – are back this series and they have some serious questions for the so-called business experts. So, let's find out about the dream team.

Claude Littner

Claude was born May 6, 1949, and is a British business executive and the former chairman of Viglen.

He kicked off his TV career on The Apprentice as one of the official interviewers during the CV round of the show.

When PR guru Nick left the show, Claude stepped into replace him.

After training as an accountant, Claude developed a career as a turnaround specialist.

It was in this role that he met Lord Alan Sugar, and agreed to chair a number of Sugar’s companies. In the early 1990s, Claude was chairman and chief executive of Amstrad International, Amstrad Spain and Dancall Telecom.

Linda Plant

Linda is the owner of international interior design company Homerun Services and has known Lord Sugar for more than twenty years.

Linday started her business with what she describes as “humble beginnings” on a market stall selling clothes.

She expanded her empire by opening retail shops and importing clothes from Hong Kong, at which point she founded clothing brand Honeysuckle.

She has said: “If one could drown in success, then I would say I was nearly guilty of that”.

Mike Soutar

Mike is the chairman of a small magazine company.

He has been on Alan Sugar’s interview panel on the show since 2011.

The entrepreneur is also the former editorial director of IPC Media, editor of FHM in the UK and US Maxim.

Claudine Collins

Claudine’s the Managing Director of MediaCom UK, a £1 billion media agency. She’s been part of the show since 2013.

She has been a mentor working with The Prince's Trust and Marie Claire and was featured in Marie Claire Magazine.

She was honoured in 2013 as one of media's most inspiring women in the industry, according to her LinkedIn profile.

She has previously said that that while she "wasn't naturally the most academic person" at school, she has always worked hard.

The Apprentice continues Wednesday night at 9pm on BBC One.
