The Apprentice SPOILER: No sign of teething troubles! The girls and boys battle it out with their toothbrush creations - which encompass space and gender-neutral themes

Last week, The Apprentice hopefuls got straight down to business when tasked with designing an advertising campaign for a destination cruise, all in a bid to impress Sir Lord Alan Sugar. 

And while relationships were tested from the off, preview clips ahead of tonight's second episode tell a contrasting story - with little evidence of teething troubles as the boys and girls go head-to-head to create a toothbrush aimed at children. 

Online pyjama store owner Kathryn Louise Burn stirred controversy among the girls last week when she failed to listen to idea feedback, but is quick to compliment floating conversation surrounding their latest project.

The cohort diplomatically discuss Francesca Kennedy Wallbank's idea of a plain orange toothbrush but the notion is not met with glowing reviews, as Sophie Wilding points out that their purpose is 'to attract a child.' 

Beauty brand owner Amy Anzel takes Francesca's feelings into consideration, saying: 'I'm just worried because Francesca is so specific about what she wants.' 

It leads Swindon-born Amy to suggest a brand new idea: 'I think we need something that a child aged six to eight wants to pick up, they're interested in. I don't think an orange basic toothbrush is going to do that.'

'That child, if it's a girl or a boy, can interpret it. If we start focusing on gender, then we are leaving ourselves wide open.
