The Next Episode of "The Apprentice UK" Airs on Monday, September 8th on CNBC

The next episode of "The Apprentice UK" (episode 3) airs Monday, September 8th at 9PM and 1AM ET on CNBC.

Twelve candidates are left in the running to become Sir Alan Sugar's Apprentice.

The business task sounds simple -- buying goods at the lowest possible price -- to test the candidate's skills and flair for negotiation. Both teams have to buy the same items including a dinner jacket, saffron and lobsters for as little money as possible.

But where do you find cut-price saffron and cheap lobsters? It's a race against time as they scramble to meet the deadline. The winning team gets a day at the races, the losers reflect on defeat and one of them is fired.

"The Apprentice UK" will air on CNBC on Mondays starting August 25th through November 10th. The show airs at 9PM and 1AM ET. Each episode of "The Apprentice UK" will repeat the following Saturday at 8PM and 11PM ET starting on Saturday, August 30th.
