The ninth series of The Apprentice continues on BBC One this evening, with episode 3 – Flat-Pack
With Jaz Ampaw-Farr and Tim Stillwell having been fired, the remaining 14 hopefuls are summoned to the headquarters of the Design Council, where Alan Sugar sets them a design-based task.
They have to come up with an inventive piece of flat-pack furniture, before producing prototypes and pitching their products to retailers.
The candidates soon get creative with one team brings a folding chair to the table, while the others set out to manufacture a multifunctional cube. But while the boys get their measurements mixed up, the girls start squabbling over market research.
On sales day, half the teams hit the high street in search of orders for their products; but with the pressure on, some members of the street sales team come unstuck. The rest head for appointments laid on by Lord Sugar with some of the country’s biggest retailers – and under scrutiny one presentation goes bottoms up.
In the boardroom, there is high praise for some people and low opinions of others, and the losing team come in for a total hammering before Lord Sugar makes his decision and one person is told “You’re fired!“.
The Apprentice is on BBC One and BBC One HD at 9pm this evening!
