London Landmarks

Series 12 - Episode 8 London Landmarks



It’s a golden rule of The Apprentice that when it comes to the boardroom, Lord Sugar is boss. Nobody crosses him there. Candidates quail. They quiver. They choke back tears. But they do not fight back.

So brace yourselves, because that rule goes out the window tonight as one candidate treats Lord Sugar almost as if he’s not a supreme being, but merely a reality-show boss who has dished out a hard task to be achieved in an unreasonable time and is now using hindsight to bully people.

Absurd, I know, but it makes for a feisty climax to an episode otherwise sustained by a pair of mermaids, a lacklustre pirate and the world’s worst canapé.


Alan Sugar gives the entrepreneurs a chance to show off their event-planning skills as he arranges for them to take over two of London's biggest tourist attractions - the London Aquarium and Madame Tussauds - for the evening. They have just 36 hours to organise a party to remember - buying refreshments, finding the entertainment and selling tickets - all the while keeping an eye on profits. For one project manager, it's a dream gig, although initial grand plans soon change, while the other team's pricing strategy goes out of the weather within minutes when they realise their budget. Will the punters get what they are being promised?
