I do feel Gary's team was somehow on a road to failure as soon as the nut allergy was mentioned, that no matter what happened from that point they were lining up Lord Sugars puns about the mother going out on a stretcher etc. Allergies are a serious issue of course but no doubt the options were limited and drama expected.

Ok so this episode was a combination of two of my favourite parts of The Apprentice. The abroad part and the scavenger hunt. Essentially the task is the most simple. Find everything on the list for the cheapest price. The team that doesn't gets penalised.

So I expected the evening to be slightly emotionally charged, to watch a new set of candidate battle it out, where you had been twelve months ago. On the contrary I think it taught me how much had happened in my life and business since to make one year seem like a lifetime.

People Love 'The Apprentice', But Do They Love Business Itself?

Fewer than one-in-five (17%) feel they have a good understanding of how big businesses operate. A third (34%) go as far as saying that big business "exists in a different world to me". Perhaps part of the appeal of The Apprentice is that it offers some type of insight, however contrived, into a world few understand.

The announcement that Claude Littner will be Nick Hewer's replacement as one set of Lord Sugar's eyes and ears in The Apprentice has more than likely struck fear in to the group of hopefuls that are looking to have the chance to win the £250,000 investment.

I feel very lucky to have been so well received by the great British public but I can't imagine everyone's experience is the same. So my top tip has to be: be yourself! Yes, it's a cliché, I'm afraid, but it's true. If you get on the show, it's a great opportunity...

We didn't get to see the full contents of the business plans - it wouldn't make great viewing to be fair - but we were offered a sneak peak of some of them, including poor Soloman's, complete with two pages of brand logo concepts and not a lot else, to which he got totally annihilated by veteran Apprentice interviewer, Claude Littner.

Does 'The Apprentice' Need to Learn Some New Skills?

To get ahead and be successful, there is no doubt that you have to be a strong and confident leader with clear idea about what you want and how you're going to get it. To remain successful, however, the narcissism that many of them seem so proud of will need to take a back seat to make way for more rational, big-picture thinking.

So I hear that one of this season's celebrity trends is 'Normcore'. This fascinating departure from glamour is to be 'deliberately ordinary' in how you present yourself. You might have nondescript, untidy hair and possibly a rather anonymous pair of glasses.

We had to take this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so we did. And six months later we drove down to London to pitch our make-up business to the Apprentices. They were looking for products they could take, sell and make the most money on.

We are lucky as women that in this day and age it isn't as hard as it used to be to make a strong stand in business and high posts... With regards to Luisa, some would say that she uses the title of businesswoman to be taken seriously but use still her sexuality to become popular. Is this really the right way to go?

Here's the thing... most people who scoff at Hull, have never even been. And I guess that's the way life works, if a bandwagon rumbles past us, we sometimes can't help but jump on it. If someone, or some place strives, we can't seem to wait to knock them.

For those of you unfamiliar with the name Luisa Zissman, you are unfamiliar with the current British celebrity hierarchy. Zissman has entered the party with immediate B/C list status. Her role as runner up on The Apprentice has effectively launched her 'it' girl status. Hardly a day passes without an update on her life by the British tabloids. And I for one- am pleased.

The Best Investment a Business Can Make - The Next Generation

I would argue that too many businesses are reluctant to take the risk on a young person without any experience. Turned on its head, that small risk could actually be a life-changing opportunity to set a young person on course for a truly bright future. So, I think every business needs to consider whether they are doing enough to support young people in their communities to first gain work experience, and then to move into employment. We cannot expect schools or parents alone to support a young person into work. In my view, businesses are a vital part of the equation.
