    Sarah's business really feels like something that would come third in a sixth form young enterprise competition to me. What shit.

    To be fair, I think she has an idea there but the product is cheap.

    I can't get past the Kleeneze catalogue as far as the name is concerned.

    I can’t believe she went through the entire process for this piece of piss. Just go on Dragons’ Den hen - I mean she’d have only made the opening titles but still.

    There already are TONS of IT Recruitment companies. It's not exactly UNIQUE.

    Was Charles supposed to look like the little man running around in The Benny Hill Show in that advert?

    I only just realised about half of the candidates weren't invited back. Thank fuck that landlord wanker wasn't there.

    Elizabeth really is a genuinely lovely person.
    Sarah to win, graze for sweets has more appeal to the masses

    Her website excuse is so annoying. Go and ask a professional to do it for you for £500. They’re not hard to administer after they’re built.

    Is this being set up for a double hiring?

    There was absolutely nothing stand out about James' concept in the least. Take it back Sugar!

    Sarah wiped the floor with James in that final.

    If ever there was a gamble worth taking, it's not on an established industry with minimal startup costs or overheads. It should have been on DAME ELIZABETH

    Anti-climax of the year. Sarah should have won that by a mile.

    IT recruitment is certainly not my area. James is probably heavily investable but surely he’d be better off just joining Ricky Martin and growing that business.

    I went from thinking Sarah’s idea was a bit naff to coming around to the idea as a really good one. It’s bascially Moonpig for confectionary and I can completely see how that would generate huge growth and repeat purchases if they get the infrastructure right.

    Fucked off at this double hiring. What a waste of time.

    James showed himself as a bit of an immature prat in that final.

    I wouldn't go as far as to say he was an "immature prat". He isn't a particularly offensive character.

    But certainly the series edit didn't show that he was capable of delivering anything that any IT recruiter couldn't, and he was repeatedly shown to be a weak leader. In a normal series, he'd have been gone by mid series.

    Tepid finalists and a tepid overall outcome. The boss couldn't even give us a nice old loser as in any other final and he had to name both winners. Very very anticlimactic.
    Make Karren Brady the boss for next year.

    He DID come across as immature in the boardroom when he was slagging off Sarah. Ok, she might only be making a turnover of 400k after 7 years but she has started a family within that time frame too.

    She might not be exciting but she at least composed herself and acted professionally. Not entirelt sold on her business idea though

    That's TWICE someone has won with a recruitment company now.

    Karren Brady would probably have fired them both. Indeed, it’d probably be the first entire boardroom sacking.

    So are there any twists left now? Has anyone been fired before being brought back into the boardroom?

    Has he ever fired anyone from the winning team?
