Favourite moment from last night's Apprentice, was when appalling laquered dark-eyed Raef hit back at the really quite okay Alex as he defended his miserable ability to not know the price of fish.
"This is not the time for hyperbole, Alex" the future Tory MP decried. Seconds earlier he had extolled his hard work not knowing the difference between sharks and hamsters by saying "I had blood, literally, coming from my hands." Hyperbole for some then, it seems.
The one thing that will put an end to evicted Nicolas's appalling smugness was the fact that he will be bald by the time he's 28 and look rather like a worse Brian Eno.
