BOND fans will recog­nise the rolling green grounds of Stoke Park Ho­tel & Coun­try Club in Buck­ing­hamshire as the sooth­ing set­ting for 007’s epic game of golf with Auric Goldfin­ger. This week, how­ever, it plays host to a whole other bag­ful of dim­pled balls, as The Ap­pren­tice’s hope­ful boys and girls de­scend like a plague of bick­er­ing lo­custs. This week’s task in­volves a spot of in­te­rior de­sign, and, for rea­sons known only to them­selves, Stoke Park’s pro­pri­etors have agreed to let Alan Sugar’s merry band loose on two of their nice rooms, tak­ing on the chal­lenge of mak­ing them over into lux­ury themed night­mare par­adises. The teams are given 48 hours to come up with and then ex­e­cute their fiendish dec­o­rat­ing plans – be­cause that’s how in­te­rior de­sign works – and go about it with the style savvy and gusto of Frank Spencer loose in the sale aisle of B&Q. High­lights in­clude Liz’s deeply sin­is­ter work with a mea­sur­ing tape. Odd Job him­self would be proud.
