‘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?
