Bakery task for Apprentice hopefuls

Melissa Cohen takes charge of Synergy in the next Apprentice challenge

The Apprentice's new batch of would-be business tycoons try to bring in some dough when they are challenged to set up a bakery in the latest episode of the hit BBC One show.

The teams are first mixed up, with Londoner Melissa Cohen put in charge of Synergy while surgeon Shibby Robati takes the top spot with Apollo.

But Melissa struggles to get her sums right as she pitches her first deal to a hotel boss who gives the team five minutes to sort it out.

And things go from bad to worse, with the hotelier accusing the team of being "disrespectful" in their approach.

The other side have the opposite problem and get a big deal in the bag but soon realise they might not have the resources to fulfil it, despite Paloma Vivanco assuring the hotel's head chef she can "absolutely guarantee" meeting the deal.

Her confidence leaves the team back at the bakery horrified at the scale of the task in front of them, with Liz Locke complaining about their "limited man power".

The experience leaves Shibby reluctant to sign up to another big order and his attitude in one meeting causes friction with his colleagues and leaves an angry Paloma blasting him for his "highly embarrassing" conduct.
