The Apprentice: Team Tenacity get to work
The Task - wearable technology
Lord Sugar summons the candidates to Imperial College London to reveal the details of the second task – design a piece of wearable technology.
The two teams – girls vs boys – must combine fashion with cutting-edge gadgets before creating prototypes and presenting their products to retailers.
Before they can get started, it's back to the drawing board for the girls, who have been instructed to think up a new team name, after their first choice, Team Decadence, was rejected by Lord Sugar. After discussion, it's Jemma Bird, 26, who comes up with their new moniker, Team Tenacity.
The teams then get designing; Team Tenacity coming up with a hi-tech jacket, and Team Summit a jumper with a built-in camera. Half of the candidates focus on fashion, while the rest tackle the technology side of things.
Come sales day, they are faced with some of the country's biggest retailers – but it's touch and go as to whether one team will have a product to present at all, and a slip of the tongue threatens to tear one pitch apart.

Nick Hewer on the boys: "In terms of chaos, over ten years, this one is creeping very near the top."
Daniel Lassman's overly honest pitch on Team Summit's hi-tech jumper: "You wouldn't go in a public place with it. No, you wouldn't go out and about…"
Ella Jade Bitton's promise that Team Tenacity's jacket can help people find love: "We can switch on a few lights, and help you attract someone that you like."
Robert Goodwin getting philosophical in his pitch to John Lewis: "Our argument is, privacy is history."
