It’s then straight to work as they set out to build a brand, make a TV advert and create a company fit for Lord Sugar.

It’s a bad start for Courtney's team as dithering and indecision over a brand name threatens to derail their presentation, and infighting on their team puts the TV advert in jeopardy.

Jessica does her best to keep the peace between Paul and Sofiane: “I’m managing two idiots!”

Elsewhere, after Alana fails to identify a U.S.P. for her business until the eleventh hour it’s a mad dash to be get ready to deliver the perfect pitch.

On launch day, the finalists step up to present their plans to 250 leading industry experts - and Lord Sugar.

As they pitch to the biggest audience of their business lives, will nerves get the upper hand, or will the candidates rise to the occasion and deliver a winning pitch?
