I would like to know if, for those introductory statements at the start "Everything I touch turns to sold", "My first word wasn't Mummy it was Money!!!", did they just naturally say those things off their own bat and look like total knobs, or did the producers mislead them a bit and tell them to "knob it up a little bit, it might make good footage for Children in Need if you make it big" or something. Because I am having difficulty believing that anybody could be quite so Knobby McKnob to actually say things like that independently.

As for Stuart "The Brand" Baggs, loads of the time these "telecoms entrepreneurs" are just people flogging an overseas calling card franchise to death or a virtual VOIP thing on a wholesaler's platform.

Raleigh and his rejection letters - they probably don't even read past your name before putting the CV in the bin mate. Change it, or stick to applying for shop floor jobs at Fortnum and Mason.

As for anyone that proudly says "I work in the city", well they have sandwich shops and shoe cobblers there too.

They clearly hammed it up with the ******** bingo statements. Like other reality shows, it's usually not the winner you remember. But the complete prats who trap off and say arrogant things.

Also I just thought, the first places they went to was the boys to Portobello Road and the girls to Leadenhall Market in the city. But Portobello Road market is Saturday only as far as I know, and Leadenhall would NOT be full of city boys as they seemed to show on a Saturday. Were the boys and girls filmed on different days then?

Portobello has a market most days of the week selling fruit and veg with a few meat stalls.

The weekend market is different it's all crafts and tat with the fruit and veg down the tatty end.

No skin from Liz despite being the beach model

Often have to remind myself that these guys are Britain's finest business prospects.

So fine they are forced to resort to this show because nobody else will employ them and they can't make it on their own!

I think she's gorgeous. Cute, nice arse and pretty eyes - but saying that, I'v noticed everyone with blue eyes on this show always have exceptionally blue eyes, I'm gathering it's some sort of filter they use?
She reminds me of that Gretchen bird who was in Prison Break..



Not a very good episode so far this week, it's been dominated by the girls group, and I especially hate the episodes where they end up in the board room by the half way point...

Liz should be fired unless she comes back in with just her bikini on!

Crap product. Crap PM. Could have fired all three of those useless idiots in the boardroom. Crap episode - hardly raised a smile, am hoping "You're Fired" is better.

I feel picking on the point of not giving exclusivity is just idiotic.

You present a product to three companies, none of which are going to tell you how many they are going to order, if any.

And one says can you give us full exclusivity (but we won't tell you how many we will commit to)

How would anyone expect to to agree to this till you hear numbers.

If you got into negotiations and how many and what value to gain exclusivity then fair enough, but only an idiot would agree without any figures.

If I was in that situation and offered that deal, I would expect that Boots wouldn't make themselves look silly in front of the millions watching by agreeing an exclusive deal and then not following it up with a half-decent order.

Terribly executed task by the women's team, would have been a travesty if they'd have won due to the Boots order. I can't help but feel also that 'Lord Sugar' gave an opportunity to the PM to save herself. She named two candidates to take in, and then he let her 'repick' them... odd that. The person she chose the second time got fired.

Did nobody at the You're Fired recording have the decency to tell Joy that that dress she has on is several decades out of fashion?
