Tonight’s episode of the hit BBC One show sees the two teams tasked with selling items at the London Pet Show, which was held at the ExCel in May.

The challenge, set by Lord Alan Sugar, will initially see the rival teams pitch to vendors for the right to sell products at the show on their behalf.

The action will then move to the ExCel, where they will seek to make as much profit as possible.

As ever, at least one contestant on the losing side will be fired.

The Apprentice will be on BBC One tonight at 9pm.
