I had never watched the real series before, but I had seen bits of it on Harry Hill's TV Burp. So this was the first of it I saw, before a real series started under two months later. Basically a bunch of celebrities were bunched up, Boys vs. Girls, with aides Nick Hewer and Margaret Mountford keeping an eye on them, and the task given to them by Amstrad founder Sir Alan Sugar, in aid of Comic Relief 2007, was to buy many ride, food, drink and invite many wealthy celebrities to a high priced charity funfair to raise as much money as possible, not only for charity, but as part of their teams. The boys included Danny Baker, Alastair Campbell, Rupert Everett, Ross Kemp, Piers Morgan and Sir Alan's last Apprentice (replacing Everett), Tim Campbell. The girls included Karren Brady, Jo Brand, Maureen Lipman, Cheryl Tweedy/Cole and Trinny Woodall. The celebrities that attended the funfair and paid high prices for both sides included Noddy Holder, Simon Cowell, Geri Halliwell, Peter Stringfellow, Michael Winner and Anthony Worral Thompson. When the task was over, the team that raised the least amount of money would have a person be fired, the boys lost, and the deserved person that was fired, for being a total stuck up bastard was Piers Morgan (who not long before this programme was fired from his newspaper). Narrated by Mark Halliley. Very good!
