When it comes to ‘The Apprentice’, history skips out the tragedy and just repeats the farce. And so the task in which the teams man shops sees late opening, over-priced goods, over-diversification, corners cut and last-minute fire sales, all climaxing in a big group hug.
Tonight doesn’t offer too much in the way of surprises, unless you count Lord Sugar making the right call in the boardroom. But it’s a very superior time-passer as the two teams, with genders now necessarily mixed, stock up and sell goods for their pop-up farm shops in London’s Broadway Market. Evolve opt for buffalo steaks and lunchtime snacks, while Endeavour trust the instincts of one man and go all in on milkshakes. Low-level hilarity and cliché-mangling (‘he is a trickless pony – literally’) duly ensue.
