Of course, once the BBC's contract with Mark Burnett productions is through, then the format may be able to move channels. But considering the financial commitment the BBC made to the show it would be hard and possibly illegal, for a contract just to be broken because one person threw their toys out of the pram.
Is The Apprentice
on the same contract as Young Apprentice
though? One would have thought so, but considering the BBC have made it clear that they aren't making any more series of the latter, but have confirmed at least two more series of the former, it could be theoretically possible for Sugar to move Young Apprentice
to another channel, while continuing to do the adult show for the BBC.
