Both teams had to pitch a piece of wearable technology and sell their products to retailers. The boys' team failed to receive any orders, while the girls' team received 250 units for their hi-tech jacket.As a treat for their success, Lord Sugar sent the girls to Surrey Docks where they flew 30 feet in the air on jetpacks.

Meanwhile, Robert Goodwin got a shock as Lord Sugar announced without hesitation: "I get the funny feeling we're going to get finger pointing at one particular individual, Robert, for not taking up the project manager's position and it would be an easy way out for everybody to be saying Robert this and Robert that.

"So I'm going to make that much easier for everyone – Robert, I don't like people who bottle out. So Robert - you're fired."

Lord Sugar continued: "I'm not going to mess about, this kind of deadwood is out as soon as possible." Project Manager Scott then brought team members Solomon and Daniel back into the boardroom, where Lord Sugar revealed his final decision. "Scott, you took the project manager's position and that may be a serious error from you", said Lord Sugar.

"The minute one of your ideas was rejected you got the hump, and then you did what you normally do which is go and hide again but in a completely different way.

"Daniel- the failure of this task was caused by lack of sales, and that could be directly down to you. Solomon, you piped up with some good ideas and they got thrown away. You didn't go for it, you need to man up a little bit, OK? “But, I'm afraid to say, Daniel - selling is a very, very important part of this task and you failed to sell. But I have to say Scott, you did not lead this team. There is no good just taking the job as the project manager then afterwards sulking when nobody agrees with your idea and then washing your hands of it. And for that reason Scott, you're fired.
