It's week eight and the candidates are taken back in time to the Museum of Childhood. Lord Sugar instructs the teams to become party planners, with just two days to set up and host a children's party for some high-spending clients.
With a £2,000 budget, the candidates must throw an event to remember, keeping an eye on profits but also pleasing the punters. Contending with tricky teens and hard-to-please parents, both teams have a challenge on their hands.
For one project manager it's a dream gig. But with grand plans for the teens to have a blast, it's not long before a massive oversight threatens to derail their task completely. Elsewhere on the team there's a party pooper, as one candidate's attempts to keep a tight rein on the budget risk spoiling the day for the birthday girl.
On the other team, efforts to make merry with the kids fall flat when an overzealous double act lead a lacklustre assault course. Things go from bad to worse with a mix up over the birthday cake and a blunder with the party gifts. Faced with disgruntled customers, the blame game starts and the party falls flat.
As the figures are added up and the profits announced, in the boardroom it's a celebration for some. For the losers, an indignant Lord Sugar takes an unprecedented step, and for someone the party is most definitely over.
The eight remaining contestants are tasked with creating a new health food snack that they have to pitch to three major retailers. The teams are given two days to come up with the snack and then compete for orders.

The final task involves the last two candidates creating and unveiling their own brand in front of industry insiders in only a few days. The candidates are allowed to bring back past candidates to help them net the £250,000 investment. Lord Sugar finally announces the winner of the series and his next business partner. Jack Dee is then joined by the contestants from tonight's show and Lord Sugar to discuss the winner's journey and the rest of the series.
Having invested £1.25 million in five successful start-up companies, Lord Sugar is on the hunt for his next investment. Punishing tasks and testing challenges, all under the watchful eyes of Baroness Brady and Claude Littner make this the toughest Apprentice yet.
The candidates are summoned to the Istituto Marangoni, where Lord Sugar tells them that for their next task they must create an advertising campaign for jeans made from Japanese denim. Teams need to design packaging, film a TV advert and create an attention-grabbing bus shelter advert, all before pitching the whole campaign to a panel of leading industry experts.
Lords Sugar sets the candidates a task in which they must design and manufacture their own brand of sweets, before heading to Brighton to sell them.
