The Apprentice

Wed Jun 26, 9-10pm, BBC1

Series nine, episode nine
‘A Caribbean dish with a Thai twist’ anyone? Someone could probably make it work, but we’d bet our right kidneys against that person being one of this year’s ‘Apprentice’ candidates.

This week’s task involves making and marketing ready meals; even if it feels slightly low key after the ructions of the last episode, there’s still plenty of amusement in the minor details – including one particularly glaring packaging error – and an upredictable boardroom too.

Getting to the final stages of ‘The Apprentice’ is about balancing visibility with culpability. But now, these chancers are going to have to stand up and be counted. This week feels like a pause for breath before that process begins in earnest.
