This year's The Apprentice series was back with all the drama and competitiveness we wanted to start the year with a bang. 

The first episode saw the 16 candidates battle it out to win over Lord Alan Sugar and his aides, Baroness Karen Brady and first-ever The Apprentice winner Tim Campbell.

The candidates are in for a winning prize of a £250,000 investment from Lord Sugar. 

Kathryn Burn, an entrepreneur from Swindon, was featured on the first episode of The Apprentice.

She is hoping to win over Lord Sugar to expand her pyjama business, which launches in January 2022. 

How did Kathryn Burn do in episode one? 

Before The Apprentice aired, Kathryn said: “My dreams in my head are absolutely huge and I believe I can achieve them.”

She described herself as ambitious, kind, often "savage", and says she is on The Apprentice to win and not make friends. 

At the beginning of the episode, the candidates were thrown in at the deep end and started the task straight away.

Teams had two days on board a ship to create an advertising campaign before pitching their concept to industry experts. 

Sleepwear supremo Kathryn put herself forward for a project manager.

She went in with a strong vision, wanting to create a 'Bouji Cruises' campaign with the tagline 'Live the Lavish Lifestyle'. 

Kathyrn had some pushback from her teammates, who didn't understand the correlation between 'bouji' and their logo. 

The team had similar feedback on their logo from ship employees, with one saying they thought it looked more like a booze cruise than a luxury holiday. 

In the boardroom, Kathryn said: "As soon as you set the task, I knew it was for me.

"I used to work at Virgin Holiday's cruises," she said to Lord Sugar. 

The girls won the task and went back to a sprawling London mansion, where they would be staying throughout the series, and had a champagne reception.

"The girls won because there was a real synergy in their campaign," Lord Sugar said. 

The Apprentice airs on BBC One and iPlayer at 9pm on Thursdays.
