WHEN the girls revealed they had picked up ten items out of ten in last week’s episode of The Apprentice, you automatically presumed they had won the task.
They had spent a number of hours at the beginning of the day preparing and planning where they were going to make their purchases.
While the boys went into the buying head-on and seemed to be running around like headless chickens. They ended up with only seven items, and Jamie spent hours trying to find a kitchen worktop.
However when the result came, and the boys were fined for every item they did not buy, it was the boys who had won. There was shock on the faces of the girls.
Last week was one of my favourite episodes for some time. Though why do the candidates have to be chauffeur driven everywhere? Surely it would be more realistic to have them travel on the tube or bus.
There is no favourite yet, though Liz might be in with a chance. Stuart is providing the comedy.
Meanwhile it is good to see England having the upper hand, so far, in this year’s Ashes in Australia.
Four years ago was an embarrassment when they lost the series 5-0.
Fortunately, they can’t lose by the same margin this time.
When they were all out in the first innings at Brisbane for 260, I thought England were going to lose the test, but their fight-back was amazing and they drew.
They have, so far, carried the momentum into the Adelaide test and Cook has been terrific.
