Steam Train

Episode 8 of 14

The teams host a corporate away day onboard the iconic Belmond British Pullman train.

It’s Week Eight, and Lord Sugar instructs the candidates to put on their high visibility jackets and meet him at the Battersea Depot.

Lord Sugar reveals its full steam ahead for this task, and that the teams will be hosting a corporate away day onboard the iconic Belmond British Pullman Train.

The candidates will have to lay on food, drink and entertainment while securing a good ticket price from the corporate clients to ensure a large profit.

The task requires the teams to show off their organisation and hospitality skills. Get off track and they could end up with a one-way ticket home.

For one team the journey gets off to a bumpy start, while the others are left covering their tracks as they are faced with hungry guests.

As this runaway train pulls in to the station, the candidates head back to the boardroom to face Lord Sugar’s scrutiny. And for one candidate it’s the final stop on their journey, as they are told – “You’re Fired!”
