The Apprentice House 2011
The house that 2011's The Apprentice contestants lived in.
Location: Christchurch Road, East Sheen
Description: 2011's The Apprentice starring East End business beardy bruiser Alan Sugar is partly filmed here. This is the house the contestants lived in for 2 months and returned to after each had been eliminated.
It's an eight-bedroom gated house owned by singer Katherine Jenkins, who bought it in 2010 for 4.7 million and is reputed to have earned her 50,000 from letting it to the BBC for the show.
The Welsh soprano and her boyfriend, former Blue Peter presenter Gethin Jones, 33, moved in shortly after shooting finished.
The shows 7th series got off to a good start in the ratings, with the first episode attracting an audience of 8m.
Before the show aired the contestants were largely anonymous, helping to keep the winner a mystery - and residents in East Sheen were certainly blissfully unaware.
