The Apprentice – BBC1

The candidates are challenged to create a brand-new comic aimed at children, before pitching their ideas to leading industry figures to secure orders

The candidates have to unleash their inner child this week (easy for most of them!) when a comic-book version of 
Lord Sugar (pictured above with Karren Brady and Claude Littner) sets them their latest task.

They must design a comic, complete with an augmented reality 
front cover, for eight- to 12-year-olds and pitch it to major retailers.

While one team decides to tackle the theme of outer space adventures, the other team opts for an educational languages-based publication, despite the fact that none of them appear to have even a basic grasp of French!

After some cringe-worthy pitching, who will end up a superhero and who will get a ‘kapow’ from the ever-exacting Lord Sugar?!
