The sincerest form of flattery

9.00pm tonight, BBC1: Young Apprentice.
A version of The Apprentice for 17 year olds.

I'd complain about them copying us if it wasn't for the fact that we copied The Apprentice in the first place...

Having watched it, I reckon on average we would have ten contestants a year who would be better than most of those kids.

I wasn't hugely impressed with what I saw of them. But I don't really think they go all out to select the ten most successful business people.

There's a crucial difference between both series of The Apprentice and 'You're Hired!'.

In The Apprentice (and Junior Apprentice), they are looking for entrepreneurial skills. We are looking for employment skills. Not at all the same things.

The Apprentice are also looking for entertainment, which you probably aren't.
