That sairi was annoying. in the flower market when she wanted to chat to the woman who was fired, when they only had 5 mins left, stupid. Harping on about the concept and interupting everyone.

hard to say if the right one was sacked, as there were about 3 women who i don't even remember (ie the 4 not in the boardroom, less the woman with red streaks in her hair)

and WHITE STILELTOS!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I didn't think it was as good as the US one but its still worth watching. I'm glad Alan Sugar was harder than Trump that made it pretty compelling. He did a good interview with the Sunday Times last week where he didn't exactly stay "on message". Among other things he said that he hated the US version and was sure he was at least the 4th choice for the UK version behind, Branson, Stelios and Philip Green.

loved it. hes obviously watched the trump version and i cared who won, whilst laughing at all of them

The women's behaviour was awful though "as a strong woman I have advantage over any strong man" ahem. maybe set back the cause of equality 20 years. The infighting as well, and if that ruddy Saira said "we are not the enemy within" once more I was going to break the telly.

Great show but this was bugging me...

Alan Sugar's Company HQ is based in Brentwood in Essex, this is clearly seen when they walk in and out. Seems a bit odd that they make them travel all the way from West London to Brentwood (up to 2 hour journey) everytime they meet with da Boss.

I enjoyed it too, seemed to have more substance then the US version (despite the Sugar/Trump comparasons). So many egos crammed into one house though, there are going to be some cracking arguements in the series.

That just at the very start. The Boardroom is almost certainly in a TV studio.

At last! A reality show that's worth watching!

I didn't see the Trump US version, but this one looks really intriguing, especially in the sense that it's hard to see any of the contestants as particularly likeable - they've all got that corporate patter down to a tee, haven't they? - but we do witness these ultra-confident success story legends in their own toilets get taken down a peg or two by Sir Alan.

I'm starting to like Sir Alan a lot, but maybe that's easier for me to say as I don't support Spurs...

I thought it was funny the way Sugar kept saying Trumps lines but in a Cockney accent.

I do and I think the fans have been unduly harsh on him over the years. If you can accuse him of anything it's not knowing much about football, I don't think he ever did anything malicious or selfish.

Am I the only one who thinks Paul is a spitting image of Joe Buxton (of Adam and Joe)

OK, I have to say I think the wrong person got fired. Clearly Saira is a fr00tL00p who has absolutely no people skills and is full of BS, not to mention completely up herself. I wonder how well the girls would have done if they'd not been so demoralised by her harping on about her "strategy" every 5 minutes.

If I were Alan she would have got the chop no questions asked.

Unfortunately, confidence to spout BS means that your BS is more likely to be believed, and the more people believe in what you say, the more successful sales person you will be, and on this basis Saira did fine - better than the other two.

Does this mean she is vacuous and annoying? YES

Does this mean she is a bad salesperson? NO

Thought this was quite a watchable start to the UK version, like gajonesmcse says the i thought the US seems a lot slicker with this version being rather more reserved and documentary style for the British audience. Definitely gonna keep watching it though and see how it progresses and lets see how many more Amstrad products are dotted around the show!
