Cross-Channel Discount Buying

Episode 3 of 14

For the candidates it's an abrupt end to their day off as Lord Sugar sends instructions to pack a bag and head to the tunnels underneath Dover Castle.

For the candidates it's an abrupt end to their day off as Lord Sugar sends instructions to pack a bag and head to the wartime tunnels underneath Dover Castle. Here, Lord Sugar has a message for the candidates - find nine items, negotiate the best possible price, and the team that spends the least amount of money will win this task.

Toughening up his approach, Lord Sugar ensures half the team are tasked with searching the Kent coast while the other half are instructed to set sail for France to bag bargains there too.

It's not long before the boys are at war... with one candidate's promise of fine French language skills leading the team in the wrong direction. For the girls, plans of making peace with each other fall apart when missing mirrors see tempers flare.

Confusion over boats throws everyone into disarray and both teams find their business attire unsuitable when faced with shovelling cow dung into their cars.

Mission over, and back in the boardroom there is yet another casualty as another unlucky candidate faces Lord Sugar's firing line.
