Watch: Apprentice first look - babies can't stomach candidates' pureed food
In their final task of the series, The Apprentice candidates invent a new baby food tonight - but it's a tough crowd in the taste test room as babies are shown spitting it out in disgust.
The BBC One show's contestants have reached the final hurdle before going through to the interview round next week, but first they must impress a room full of tiny judges who hold even less back than Lord Sugar with their pureed recipes.
Project manager Aaron Willis is shown honing his recipe in the test kitchen in a clip from tonight's episode, but he manages to ruin the texture by adding extra rice and making it too stodgy and bland to stomach.
However, he says: "It must be alright, because I keep eating it."
But when the puree is served up for lunch to a group of hungry babies, the reaction is not what the candidates had hoped for.
One child spits out the puree while pulling a revolted face, another appears to retch as his mother offers him a second spoonful, and a third cries while rubbing it into his face.
In the feedback, one mother tells candidate Kathryn Louise Burn: "You've got brown rice, cous cous, sweet potato, that's quite a lot of stodge."
Another says: "For a Moroccan adventurous food, it is a little bit bland."
The candidates who make it through this week's task will have to face Claude Littner at interview next episode, as the former aide to Lord Sugar confirmed earlier this week that he makes a return this series.
He has been replaced in the boardroom by former Apprentice winner Tim Campbell after Littner suffered a serious electric bike accident where he almost lost a leg.
Littner said that he had felt much better by the time he was due to film the interviews and said of a future return for a full series: "I certainly feel well enough to come back and am very optimistic."
The Apprentice airs tonight (Thursday) at 9pm on BBC One.
