Mountfitchet Castle was featured on episode 17 of Lord Alan Sugars’ The Apprentice show on BBC 1 on 15th November 2017. The crew and cast came here to film back in April 2017 and were blessed with lovely weather. The resident chickens, ducks and turkeys all enjoyed the filming and are now hoping for fame and glory! We would like to wish the eventual winner of the series all the very best for the future.
