Dubai

Episode 5 of 14

Business competition. The teams head off on a business trip to Dubai, where they must secure a number of items required by a new multi-million pound hotel.

The candidates face an early start, as a pre-dawn call informs them that they are off on a business trip to Dubai. Bags are quickly packed, and then the teams are straight off to Gatwick and the UAE.

In the almost-finished foyer of a new multi-million pound hotel, the candidates discover their task: find and secure items needed for the hotel at the lowest possible prices. One team tries to use local knowledge to their advantage by scouring the souks for bargains, while others want to track down items fast and they head for a mega mall.

But in the heat of Dubai, it's not long before the candidates start to sweat; mistakes with measurements leave one team with a big problem, while waiting time costs others dearly. Negotiation skills are pushed to the limit, and identifying the items proves tricky as some of the candidates get lost in translation.

As darkness falls there is a final dash round Dubai, before racing back to the hotel where the hotel manager casts a discerning eye over their purchases.

In the boardroom there are surprises in store and a true boardroom battle commences, but the holiday is over for the fifth candidate as Lord Sugar sends them packing with the words 'You're fired!'.
