The Apprentice 2023 recap: What happened in episode 3?
To celebrate 100 years of the BBC, the candidates were tasked with creating a cartoon – but one team in particular should have gone back to the drawing board.
Tonight's new task saw the two teams create a short cartoon aimed at pre-school children, which would be judged by industry experts – and while one group managed to impress with their animation skills, another delivered a classic Apprentice blunder.

This week, the teams were jumbled up, resulting in Dani Donovan, Shazia Hussain, Sohail Chowdhary, Mark Moseley, Marnie Swindells and Bradley Johnson forming Team Affinity with Avi Sharma as project leader.
Team Affinity decided to create a story about Yogita the Giraffe – a giraffe who is self-conscious about her height but makes friends at school – although tensions rose between Shazia and Marnie over story details and design.
Meanwhile, Team Apex decided on Femi and Faye – a story about Femi choosing to join in a clapping game with wheelchair user Faye after she's unable to play on a slide, but the group soon realise that they didn't animate any hands or feet for the characters.
These faults don't go unnoticed by the industry experts, who also criticise the "condescending" moral behind the cartoon and choose Team Affinity as the winners.
Back at the boardroom, project leader Reece decided to bring Denisha and Gregory back in with him.
While Lord Sugar criticised Denisha's sub-team leadership skills and blamed Reece for the idea behind the story, he chose to fire Gregory, who failed to contribute anything useful to the task.
