Watch: Apprentice candidates squabble over non-alcoholic drink task

A first look at tonight's The Apprentice task sees candidates arguing over the recipe to make a non-alcoholic drink.

Contestants are asked to create and market a new soft drink that will taste as good as any cocktail, but as stress levels rise, tempers are frayed in the drinks kitchen.

This week, the girls and boys teams have been mixed up after the boys lost two tasks in a row, but it seems the new groups are struggling to get on as they grapple with the task.

In one clip, Sophie Wilding, Stephanie Affleck and Navid Sole become confused over which version of their alcohol-free beer they are looking at and begin to bicker as they try to recreate the recipe, as aide Tim Campbell looks on laughing.

Over on the other team, things are looking just as fraught with Harpreet Kaur losing her temper at Akeem Bundu-Kamara, Alex Short and Aaron Willis as she snaps at them: "You need to listen to me. My voice only."

Their aide Karren Brady warns them: "You really, really have to get on with this."

But the stress of their time limit makes things worse as Kaur refuses to let the team test out a different version of their mock lime-vodka-soda with less salt in it - which has disaster red flags all over it.

This week has seen Shama Amin drop out of the show for health reasons as she struggled to balance the physical demands of the tasks with her rheumatoid arthritis.
