    Maybe, but you can't overlook the fact she managed to get into Primark on her own. Sure it's not exactly high-brand, and her products are cheap, but it's the second biggest High Street Clothing/Fashion retailer in the country! That's impressive.

    Of course it's impressive, and it not being high brand certainly won't put Sugar off. But it doesn't make for a very satisfying TV show.

    I agree with Kala that it's looking like Pamela v Carina.

    Well we've beaten last year's thread, at least.

    I didn’t think I could hate Lottie any more and then BAM

    I think Carina v Scarlett at this point.

    Surely Pamela over Scarlett based on that boardroom interview summary?

    Carina is a definite for sure.... and yeah it's Pamela v Scarlett for the final spot.

    Linda Plant did NOT disappoint though. Has Claudine always been so nice?

    Yeah, I know Claudine was never as savage as Linda, but I'm sure she was never that soft.

    And the girls rule again! Overall they WERE way better than the boys though.

    They can certainly sniff £££ in Scarlett potentially though. I can't call it.

    The fact none of her products are original is a concern though.

    Susan Ma - remember 'Do the French love their children?' - she didn't win, but she's probably been his biggest success.

    Does it matter that much, if she's aiming at Primark?

    Happy with that final two.

    I probably favour Scarlett. I feel Carina came alive more in that episode as well.

    Well I was wrong! Still I don't think Pamela needs the money. She'll be fine.

    I think Carina has this...

    So Lottie IS banned from You're Fired, then?

    I hope they address it.

    When Carina was pressed for how many stores she planned to open in the future it did make me cringe. The market is saturated, and it doesn’t sound like she is doing anything different.

    You'd think someone like her should KNOW how many stores Greggs have as well, wouldn't you? If she's going to cite them as her competition even more so.

    And can you REALLY scale up a business like that and keep it 'artisan '?

    And if it IS artisan, how is Greggs the competition?

    She was on Irelands Dragons Den, and was offered investment by three dragons, but pulled out before the show aired as she got a better offer elsewhere. So, yes out of all the business ideas I personally would say she was probably most investable. She did not sell it well though.

    The comments she supposedly made were true then?

    Who knows? I've not followed her response that closely.

    I don’t like her, and think she comes across as stuck up, entitled, and terribly pretentious. I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if she did make those comments, but I must say I also wouldn’t be surprised if the BBC made it up.

    Did anyone watch the Final Five show? I assume she was still on that?

    No, I haven't. But isn't that usually filmed ages ago alongside the series itself?

    I could have sworn I saw the final was tonight, but apparently it’s Wednesday :confused:

    I wouldn't have said it before the interview episode, but Carina was the obvious winner of that episode. She came across well in every interview, even when put up to the test.

    It really felt like they gave Claudine the task of trying to wheedle tears out of the candidates this year in a nice way. Three of them cried in her interview.
