Former GMB presenter Piers Morgan took a cheeky jibe at Apprentice star and friend Lord Alan Sugar on Sunday morning after the announcement that the BBC’s Apprentice would be returning. As Sugar took to Twitter to reveal the trailer for the new series, Morgan retweeted the clip and added a caption that was perceived harsh by fans, despite their earlier ongoing feud being resolved.  

Alongside a clip of the new series trailer, Sugar captioned the clip: “I’m back in business for @BBCApprentice, watch weekly from 6th January at 9 pm on @BBCOne and @BBCiPlayer #TheApprentice.”

Morgan teased: “Oh no… I thought one of the few benefits of this pandemic was that we’d never have to see this – or him – on TV again….”

Noticing the sarcastic negativity from Morgan’s tweet, other users of the site replied, with many not being fooled by his attempt of sarcasm.

@Albertanza2 wrote: “Thought you patched things up, Piers? You are clearly advertising this on his behalf.”

@Jayke1981 added: “Piers, we’ve heard you two patched things up so, this negative won’t work!”

Despite their exchange, fans of the show were delighted to hear the series would be returning, with @JilStaines1 writing: “Can’t wait! I’m addicted to the Apprentice Australia!”

 @emjamesdj said: “Can’t wait for this! I’ve missed the Apprentice not being on this year! So glad you’re back @Lord_Sugar.”

Last year, Sugar and Morgan had a sensational falling out after Morgan criticised the Government’s handling of the pandemic on Good Morning Britain.

Lord Sugar took issue with the presenter’s comments and called him out on Twitter which ultimately left to a huge rift between the formerly good friends.

When the feud first began, Sugar tweeted at Morgan and wrote: “You are an utter disgrace @piersmorgan I don’t know who the hell you think you are on your self-appointed tirade against the GOV.”

In response, Piers said: “[If he] wants to spew constant repulsive abuse at someone for holding the Government to account for decisions that will decide whether people live or die, that’s a matter for him and his conscience”.

However, in Morgan’s new column for the Daily Mail, he explained that despite their disagreements on certain Government decisions he revealed he “began to miss the old goat”.

Sugar allegedly sent Morgan a reconciliation email, which Morgan revealed read: “It was difficult times, and the public were scared.

“But what’s done is done, and it’s not worth falling out over long-term, considering how far we go back.”

Morgan added he was happy to move on as “life is too short and fragile for petty feuds, especially with your family or old friends.”

After two years of not airing due to the pandemic, The Apprentice will finally return back on viewers screens in January 2022.

The latest instalment will see former winner Tim Campbell join as one of Lord Sugar’s aides.

He will be standing in for Claude Littner, as she is unable to take part in the new series due to medical reasons.

Tim will join Karren Brady with Lord Sugar saying: “My former winner Tim Campbell will step into Claude’s seat and be my eyes and ears as the candidates face a tough set of business challenges in the upcoming series.”

Carina Lepore won The Apprentice’s latest series in 2019, securing investment in her artisan bakehouse.

Lord Sugar picked Carina to be his business partner ahead of Scarlett Allen-Horton who pitched her new recruitment agency. 

The Apprentice returns 6th January at 9pm on BBC One.
