The Apprentice preview: Candidates have to buy for the Savoy

THIS week’s challenge sees the remaining candidates called to meet Lord Sugar at the famed Savoy Hotel in the wake of its �220m refurbishment.

The mouthy hopefuls are then given nine hours to source ten products for the hotel, and their powers of negotiation are pushed to the limit as they attempt to track down everything on the unusual shopping list and purchase them at the lowest possible price.

As always, Nick and Karren watch on as the candidates get increasingly desperate in their attempts to locate and buy the items.

Tensions rises as last-minute deals are struck and the teams race to the Savoy to have their purchases inspected by the hotel’s general manager.

Missing or incorrect items are subject to penalty fines, leading to a dramatic result in the boardroom.
