Elizabeth was brilliant TV. Very surprised she never ended up in CBB.

Katherine Ryan (Jackie) might be one to watch for fireworks.

Surprised she went first, Alan usually keeps the confrontational ones to rile them up for a few weeks and gets rid of the quieter ones. Loved that they started off with my favourite task, always some real cringe moments, can't believe they didn't bring up how ridiculous it was that the guy haggled 1p off the wine at the supermarket.

The one with the huge lips was incredibly entertaining, that's why I was sure they would keep her for a few weeks, surprised that I was wrong.

Yeah, I couldn't stand Sarah and her lips, but I was certain she'd last a few weeks just to entertainment value. Glad she's gone, although would have preferred wicked Jackie to go. I'm glad it wasn't the PM Jasmine who got fired, as that would have been so predictable.

Why no team names?

This task is so outdated. In the real world, we all have smartphones, etc.

Frank whinging and almost crying in the board room was delicious

Why were they bickering over languages, can’t they google this stuff?

The girls’ PM was hellish this week and I loved her misplaced confidence. How can anyone not know who Kim Jong Un is? :roll:

Him who threw the boys under the bus in the sales pitch! :lol: Sealed his own fate there. Frank’s a fanny.

The girls deserved to win, it was basically Dora the Explorer but it had a lot more going for it.

They aren't allowed to Google so it baffles me that they chose to do it. I don't know how they won. The boys comic may have been predictable but it was stylistically better and had more legs to grow.

The right person went. Frank constantly shaking his head when Alan told him to stop made me laugh.

Oh Christ these donuts... I’m sorry but who is paying over £5 a donut?! I thought Krispy Kreme was expensive enough!

I’m glad Jasmine stayed. She’s my favourite - hard working, intelligent and beautiful.

Jackie made the wrong decision that the donuts had to look like Bs which unnecessarily complicated the whole task.
She should have been brought back into the boardroom by Tom and fired by Lord Sugar.

Ffs. I cringe so much at this show every week.

And the format is so predictable. One team starts off well but then dips, the other teams starts off badly but suddenly business is soaring out of nowhere. And then with little time left, it’s supposedly neck and neck

The Kayode love throughout was nauseating. His sales technique last week wasn’t even spectacular.

Kurran is even more pointless now that his arm is broken but he’s comedy value just because he’s so useless

I would have rather the other team win tbh. The winning team won because one of sauna sale at £999.99 tbh. Although £2 for a one minute standing up massage is just whaaaat?

Sabrina is so annoying. And Daniel’s diction is bad.

I’m sad that sexy Alex went

Kayode is one of the most annoying the way he speaks and the arrogance? Too much. It’s been funny so far but is obviously fixed now more transparently than normal.

I reckon Kayode will be PM in a task just shortly before the interviews and spectacularly fail so Sugar fires him but it’s all emotional
