This year's The Apprentice series was back with all the drama and competitiveness we wanted to start the year with a bang. 

The second episode saw the 15 candidates battle it out to win over Lord Alan Sugar and his aides, Baroness Karen Brady and first-ever The Apprentice winner Tim Campbell.

The first episode of The Apprentice was watched by 4.6 million people, making it the show’s most popular launch since 2017.

The candidates are in for a winning prize of a £250,000 investment from Lord Sugar. 

Kathryn Burn, an entrepreneur from Swindon, made it through the first episode as project manager of the girls' team, but how did she do in episode two?

She is hoping to win over Lord Sugar to expand her pyjama business, which launches in January 2022. 

How did Kathryn Burn do in episode two? 

This week, the candidates were asked to market a brand-new electric toothbrush for children aged between six and eight. 

They met at the Eastman Dental Institute at University College London and were tasked by an animated Lord Sugar Fairy to create a new app to encourage kids to brush their teeth.

The girls' team project manager was business owner Francesca from Surrey and operations instructor Aaron, from Lancashire, led the boys.

Francesca's team chose an intergalactic theme for their toothbrush called 'Brushing Star'. 

However, after half the team revealed their packaging, there were concerns that the design was too young and would not suit the target audience. 

Some of the girls' team were also not impressed with the app, which was a planet design with a tooth character, but managed to pull it back with a strong pitch to the buyers.

In the boardroom, it was revealed that the girls got a total of 11,000 orders for their toothbrush and app, meaning Kathryn was safe for another week. 

They were sent to a posh afternoon tea in Chelsea as a treat from Lord Sugar.
