BBC bosses were furiously left behind after a participant in The Apprentice let friends slide off that they made the last two of the show.

The 12 weeks of challenges have already been shot and the first episode will only be broadcast on Wednesday, but one cast member has reportedly broken his secrecy.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: & # 39; The participant has seriously irritated many people by not keeping this to themselves. You would have thought that this would weigh heavily on the mind of Lord Sugar if he finally decided who would be hired in the final. & # 39;

The name of the participant is not leaked on social media, but production employees are afraid that this can happen at any moment.

An insider said: & # 39; Producers have little choice but to keep everything crossed and hope no one talks online.

& # 39; You would expect some very powerful words to be addressed to the person who slipped here. & # 39;

This is the 14th installment of the popular BBC show in which eight women and eight men compete for the £ 250,000 investment from Lord Sugar.

The news comes after it was revealed that another participant in The Apprentice 2019, Lewis Ellis, once traveled around the world & # 39; after he lied about ending up in Syria during a boat trip from Ayia Napa, Cyprus.

The 28-year-old Digital Marketing Project Manager, then 25, worked as a representative in the party town and said he was boarding what he thought was a dolphin observation boat just to be taken to the port of Tartus – 80 miles from Homs, Syria.

Lewis, from Manchester, told the Mirror at the time: & The last club closed at 7:30 am, so we just drove on to our boat trip at 9:00 am and walked our way to the wrong boat.

& # 39; We were wearing boardshorts, hangover, it looked like we were ready for a boat party. & # 39;

He told news.com.au: & # 39; It's the most ridiculous story, isn't it? We went to see f ****** dolphins and we ended up in f ****** Syria. & # 39;
