Apprentice preview: Candidates face popular buying challenge

JUST seven of the candidates in the latest series of the Apprentice are left standing - and another one gets fired tonight in the ever-popular buying task.

The teams revert back to boys vs girls and Lord Sugar aims to determine who can strike the best deals in a race against time to find and buy ten items in ten hours.

The candidates’ skills are pushed to the limit as they attempt to track down everything on an unusual shopping list and purchase them at the lowest possible price.

With the deadline looming, the tension reaches fever pitch as both teams make a dramatic dash to the boardroom, anxious to avoid penalty fines from the boss.

The losing team faces Lord Sugar back in the boardroom - and, as always, someone’s going to get fired.
