How the feck did the boys flog that much tat?! Mind you, before you go getting ideas about turning over a nice 200 quid a day, that pitch on Southbank will knock you back a bit.

Why did the girls all stick together at the zoo, bickering about 'she stole mah sale! She stoooole mah sale!? Why didn't they divide and conquer?

Much muppetry indeed.

That Irish girl's gonna be a head messer.

That bit was superb :lol:

That and the Bulgarian woman telling Alan Sugar "no, those shops are closer"... as if she knows better than everyone. She talked herself out of that show, should've kept her mouth shut and Katie would've gone.

Great. The only hot one in the whole show and now she's been fired. :hmm:

Her voice was grating on me though and she only had herself to blame when she couldn't stop talking.
