Stevenage businessman and The Apprentice star Scott Saunders described last night’s show as ‘cringe-worthy but funny’ as the candidates attempted to put together a children’s book.
Scott survived to fight another day despite the team he was part of losing the task as their Snotty Dink creation netted £587.25 in sales, compared to £690.10 for the Bizzie Bee book led by Charleine Wain.
Losing team project manager Sam Curry eventually brought back Brett Butler-Smyth and Natalie Dean to the boardroom, with the latter getting the boot by Lord Sugar on the BBC One show.
A week earlier Scott, who went to Fearnhill School in Letchworth and previously lived in Ickleford, had his first boardroom experience as project manager – but lived to tell the tale.
Afterwards Scott received plaudits for his refusal to blame his teammates – a rare feat in the white-heat of the boardroom which has seen many candidates shift criticism onto others.
