Hurrah! I love The Apprentice!

Although I do usually think quite a few of the contestants really need a good dose of common sense and humility. But hey, that's what makes it fun!

How long is the comic relief one running for?? It seems a little late to be starting now! Is it just a one off show?

I think Fearne Cotton should be one of the contestants.  Her first test should be to jump off Canary Wharf into a skip full of broken glass.

It's a one hour special.  Shame as they could have made a proper show out of it I reckon.

Its a One Hour Show tonight and it concludes tomorrow night, during the big red nose show I presume.

Who is actually on it??

I only saw it for the first time last year and thought I could never watch such a bunch of self-serving scum.  Then of course became promptly addicted to it!!!!

Trinny Woodall is so silly - that stupid exercise taught to her by a Russian doctor? Right ...

Some woman that I didn't even recognise just gave away £150,000 on a whim.  You read about this sort of thing but actually seeing someone do it with so little deliberation made me feel a bit sick, literally.

I loved the little look to the camera Cheryl gave the camera after that Russian doctor nonsense.  Classic.

I liked it; proof that the celebs are even more self-absorbed than the business wannabes.

Is there anyone on television as repugnant as Piers Morgan or Alistair Campbell? Even when I thought my opinion of those two besuited weasels couldn't get any lower they managed to sink it even further by physically bullying a woman. Bravo. Not surprised to see in the preview for the next episode both of them selling each other out like the two-faced, slimy, deceitful rodents that they are.

(I don't like them much.)

I think calling Trinny Woodall a woman is a bit of a reach; she's a torrid, self involved hag.

If she weren't famous for being a condescending cow, she'd be an ideal candidate for the regular series.

Piers Morgan & Alistair Campbell = Twats!

That is all.

You can really see why Campbell grew to be so powerful though. In those negotiations with Karren Brady (no slouch herself) he absolutely destroyed her. I respect someone who can so easily manipulate people like that.

Morgan is a bit of a twat and clearly a master of self-promotion, but there's always a real sense of spite in everything he does.

But neither was as bad as that Trinny creature. She clearly went overboard, and for all her protestations about them cheating, she was only too happy to spy on them and take notes.Her behaviour afterwards was despicable though and she compounded it by crying about it and making herself the victim.

Cheryl Tweedy(Cole) cracked me up! Being so disgusted with the squid, which was really gross, her little look to camera when Trinny was chatting bollocks, and her 'have you'se got a touch of that OCD thing?' was well funny in her broad geordie accent.

And her and Mauren Lipman actually appeared very down to earth when that woman just wrote of £150 big ones without batting an eyelid. Nice to see even the celebs realise the obvious..'someone could buy a house with that'


Pleased the girls won, Piers Morgan is such a twat.

It was great. The part when Cheryl, asked Trinny if she 'had a touch of OCD' was a classic.

The men were by all accounts a bit rubbish and that Piers bloke, what a knob.
Rupert had the right idea of scarpering before it began.

I thought the boys had it in the bag, I'm surprised they lost (tho I don't mind, I actually thought Alistair Campbell seemed ok, but that was probably just in comparison to Piers Morgan!).

Bit if a change from the regular series when they all said nice things about their leaders instead of calling them an incompetant twat, regardless of how well they have done

What happens now, do they just fire one of them and that's it??

Cheryl was so funny. did anyone else notice whilst the boys and girls were arguing over the rides Cheryl was just texting on her phone.


I enjoyed it alot of fun, the boys were cocks, glad they lost! I Assume today we just see the boardroom and someone get fired, it will be hidden away in the mass of events happening in the big show, I may start watching an hour late on sky+ that way I can fast forward what I dont want to watch!

I reckon so. I also reckon it'll have nothing to do with the task, just Sir Alan deciding who he'd rather get to tell they're fired: Campbell or Morgan.

I was so glad the girls destroyed the guys! Can't stand Piers or Campbell, they were both horrible, so self important, self-involved.... and couldn't work a stapler! And they got their asses handed to them  Even when they got Tim on side (who is a legend!).

Bizaarely found myself warming to Cheryl Tweedy/Cole - something I never thought would happen! Did anyone actually spot Ross Kemp in any of the footage of the fairground event itself? I swear he wasn't even there!

I think people are being a little hard on Trinny though - I'm really not a fan of her's and obviously, she's a bit of a nutter with the whole Russian doctor thing etc. I thought that Piers & Alistair were well out of line though in the way they acted when she went to get the chef, and I don't think she faked the crying when she got back to the room either. I know that in those circumstances, I probably would've done the same: held it together whilst I was down there 'cos I was so angry, but then once you're out of the situation....

Anyway. Who do people reckon's in for the chop? I vote Piers!

Cheryl Tweedy/Cole is still a waste of skin...!

Was she the one who thumped a nightclub attendant in Guildford??

Yes, I believe that was her. 

I'm still not a fan, but don't dislike her with the quite the passion that I used to! Compared to some of the rest of them, she came across as still being fairly 'normal' - in the sense that she realise £150,000 is a lot of money, despite being married to a ridiculously overpaid footballer!

I couldn`t agree more exactly my views Piers and Alastair are a pair of obnoxious bullies probably only doing the show to up their profiles even further and try and look good but failing badly! Alastairs face when he was getting a telling off by Sir Alan was halarious!

Can anyone else not help imagining a flushing sound when Sir Alan walks out of that door to sit down at the desk

I was disapointed to learn that is just a set tho and all of the walks of shame are pre-filmed before the series really starts...

In a move that will shock no-one, Piers got sacked.  I just wish they pushed him off the top of Alan's skyscraper or something.
