The Apprentice 9pm, BBC One
‘HAPPY birthday to you, happy birthday to you, you look like a business magnate, and you smell like one too…” Come gather round, as it’s a super special edition tonight: it’s Wee Alan Sugar’s 70th birthday (again!) and, in a shameless spin on a traditional task, the teams are ordered to go out into the kingdom to find nine magical gifts that mark his achievements on Earth, and generally flatter his ego. But what do you get the man who has everything, especially now that Siobhan is gone? Sugar’s list of longed-for goodies includes A Tottenham Hotspur Scarf, An Amstrad Computer, Some Bricks, An Item Made In 1947, An Old Car Aerial and A Cake – but the candidates have the dicey job of picking up these nice presents for their god made flesh, while also having to satisfy his capricious whims by not spending much money on them. Thankfully Liz (“an uncontrollable, unprofessional cartoon character”, to quote Bushra) is on the case. But can the boys even find their way around London?
