On The Apprentice: You're Fired, the after-show analysis programme for The Apprentice, presenter Dara O'Brien gave a special version of the game to finalist Susan Ma.

Throughout the competition, the 21-year-old entrepreneur earned a reputation for asking silly questions like "do the French love their children?"

So when asked that question on custom-made board, the robot who "ALWAYS gives the RIGHT answer" held his nerve and answered correctly, pointing to 'Yes'.

Ecotronic specialises in vintage board games. Its ‘retro range’ contains the likes of Jack Straws, the Beetle Game, Family Bingo and Dan Dare.

The original Amazing Magical Robot was released in 1959.
