Funny how the idiots all group together though isn’t it? We had guessed the final teams before they were chosen.

I'm always annoyed when they have to 'launch your new business' when at least one of the finalists already has a business.

And why would Alan want them to choose their launch team from a bunch of people he's already decided are ste?

"I'm going to invest £250,000 in an idea and you've got 24 hours to come up with a name, a logo, a billboard and a 1980s-style tv advert. But you can only oversee half of those things; the rest of it you have to hand over to people who were calling you names a couple of weeks ago and who we've all decided are fkwits."

"Oh, and if you can dress like Batman in drag, that would help."

Do any of the winners ever carry on with the business idea they created on the show or do they rename them and carry on with their own ideas?

It’s strange to think the finalists need to come up with a name for their business idea on the final show. They really treat the viewer as dumber than the contestants.

How do these numpties get on this, or Dragon's Den when they don't know the difference between turnover, gross profit and net profit?

Surely there is some form of audition/vetting?

You need to remember these are TV shows… the ‘business’ aspect is just a hook to hang a plot on.

I think a lot of them want to be on the show so set up a business rather than the other way round. Dani didn’t bother buying any stock for her hair extension business because she “didn’t think she would get very far in the process “
