Apprentice viewers are disgusted as contestant takes part in 'poo-spitting' game as part of first task

Yuk!

Lord Sugar's Apprentice made it's long-awaited return to our screens last night (October 2), and to say the series opener caused a stir would be an understatement.

Flying the contestants off to South Africa for their first assignment, the new batch of hopefuls were tasked with offering tours to tourists.

While the girls stuck to classy wine tasting in a vineyard, the boys' team decided to take their guests out on a safari.

Heading out with a ranger ahead of the tour, the boys were briefed on the Big Five and showed a "game" by one of the staff at the reserve.

It involved taking a piece of springbok poo, putting it in your mouth and seeing how far you could spit it.

Well I wasn’t expecting to see people spitting poo on The Apprentice!

Sounds like hours of fun to us!

And they took to Twitter to share their views.

Karren Brady accompanied the boys on the trip and wasn't impressed by the game, or the fact that they didn't know the difference between a rhino and an elephant.

The first episode of the new series comes as BBC bosses told off an unnamed contestant for bragging they had reached the show's as-yet-unaired final.
