Hotline: The BBC may move next series of The Apprentice

The BBC Trust has warned that the BBC may have to move the next series of The Apprentice to later on next year if a General Election is called.

Responding to a complaint from the shadow culture secretary, Jeremy Hunt, the Trust ruled that Alan Sugar's new role as government "enterprise champion" posed a "greater than normal risk to the impartiality, integrity and independence of the BBC".
