I’ve never had any enthusiasm for The Apprentice before. And on the rare occasions I’ve seen it, I’ve always been intensely irritated by the massive egos who think that stupid cufflinks and a loud voice are an effective substitute for ability and hard work.

I might have an occasional glimpse at the new series though: m’colleague Ivan is running an office sweepstake on who’s going to win, so I could be in for some cash :-) . In the random draw, I selected Paula Jones, who certainly looks – in the publicity shot on the BBC website – scary enough to be a contender.

I hope so, anyway – the only reason Ivan’s arranged it is so that, every Thursday morning, he can shout “YOU’RE FIRED” at the latest hapless sweepstake evictee.
