Everybody cracked up over this extremely awkward hug on The Apprentice last night

Sure what’s a friendly shoulder tackle between lads?

WE’VE COME TO expect a few dopes on The Apprentice, but this year’s band of hopefuls are particularly hapless.

In last night’s episode, the contestants were challenged to manufacture and sell sweets to the public in Brighton, and as you may expect, it was a bit of a disaster.

It all went arseways for Oliver Nohl-Oser when he decided his team would be making salt and vinegar fudge (rank), leading to him getting the boot from Lord Sugar.

The best moment, though, came when ‘hot head’ Paul tried to hug Oliver after his elimination. It was not a hug. It was more of a shoulder tackle.

Viewers were alternately tickled by what has been dubbed the ‘least tender hug ever’:

And genuinely concerned for ‘little’ Oliver’s wellbeing:

Well, it isn’t a race to see who can be Lord Sugar’s best friend, is it? This is BUSINESS. And that is a BUSINESS HUG.
