If you didn't spend much time in school playgrounds during the mid-1980s, then the Garbage Pail Kids will mean very little to you. But to those of us who swapped and hoarded these gross stickers, a new hardcover collection of their artwork makes for a particularly sick nostalgia trip. The Garbage Pail Kids were produced by US collectibles manufacturer Topps. Each pack contained one stick of dry bubble gum and three stickers. The book, Garbage Pail Kids (Abrams, £12.99), features images of 206 stickers: some hauntingly familiar, others infuriatingly rare.

"I'm looking for a partner," Lord Sugar said, introducing himself to the contestants in The Apprentice, "the Marks to my Spencer, the Lennon to my McCartney." Comprehension stuttered briefly. Does Lord Sugar really think he's the sentimental, melodic one, the kind of man who would produce the corporate equivalent of "The Frog Chorus"? Does he really think that what he's lacked all these years is a bit of rock'n'roll abrasion? He said he was looking for "aggression" along with nous and business acumen, but he's hardly short of that quality as it is. It seemed more likely that he was looking for a Burke to his Hare, and the candidates, as usual, were very happy to run through their qualifications as trainee sociopaths. "When it comes to business, I'm like a shark," said Ricky. "I would call myself the Blonde Assassin," added Katie. "They call me the master puppeteer," boasted Azhar. Gabrielle, meanwhile, promised that she would "literally roar" her way to the top. Literally, Gabrielle? Not sure Lord Sugar's going to like that.
