Sugar's watchman Nick Hewer vents his anger at project manager Tom Gearing's cavalier approach to purchasing the second-hand goods needed to win the task.
Donning a pair of dark sunglasses, Hewer said: "They've only bought a few items, itIs nuts! They've got to fill that shop tomorrow; I don't want to be walking in to an empty shell of a shop!
"There's a difference between 'minimalism' and 'emptiness' and I think they need to really get some stuff in there."
Gearing eventually recognises the need for more stock after the shop opens, sending a sub-team across London to buy more.
"We've sold a number of items but the shop looks empty," he admitted. "The concern is, are we going to have enough stock for the rest of the day?"
