About 30 seconds into any series of The Apprentice, the exciting wait for the interviews round kicks in. As soon as the business bragging ("I'm the best sales person in Europe"), daft one-liners ("The spoken word is my tool") and outrageous promises are unleashed ("Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there's footprints on the moon"), we await with glee for the intense grilling from Lord Sugar's closest associates.

The devilish Margaret Mountford and terrifying Claude Littner will be bringing Tom, Susan, Jim and Helen down to size on this Sunday's grand finale. But what is the greatest ever Apprentice interview? Reality Bites looks back at some of our personal favourites.

Lee's dinosaur impression
Despite being caught out for fibbing on his CV, Lee McQueen ended up winning series four of The Apprentice. We reckon his reverse pterodactyl swung it for him.



Margaret returns
We thought we'd lost Maggie Mountford to the world of papyrology in 2010. We were wrong. She returned for the interviews, came to blows with Baggs The Brand and put "puerile" Jamie Lester in his place.



James McQuillan spunks it up the wall
Without doubt our favourite candidate from 2009, James McQuillan was a colourful character who had a great one-liner for every occasion. Unfortunately his humour proved his downfall at the interviews.



Tre and Katie meet their match
The entire interview episode from series three of The Apprentice is worthy of recognition. Tre Azam stuttering through a probing about his business background and the vile Katie Hopkins duking it out about her family life were notable highlights.
