Apprentice candidate and former Brigidene School pupil Elle Stevenson said she felt ‘relieved’ to be fired from the BBC One show tonight.

The 21-year-old, from Wraysbury, admitted she was a ‘crap project manager’ in the latest task when candidates were asked by Alan Sugar to set up and run a handyman business.

“I was pleased I got to go and am not bothered,” she added.

“It was a lot of pressure and you have to get people to work together in a positive way, it is difficult.”

However despite being shown to clash with her fellow candidates on television, the construction operations executive, says outside of the tasks the group were all friends.

“We were all living in that house together so you have got to try and find a way to put that all behind you,” she added.

“We were all friends really.”

Looking back at her time spent on the show, Elle says she has no regrets.

“I went in with my eyes wide open,” she said.

“It was a great experience and I have made some amazing friends.

“However I was the right person to go.

“There are a lot of strong people in the process and strong candidates.”

Out of the remaining candidates, plumbing business owner, Joseph Valente, is someone Elle says she ‘has a lot of respect for’ and believes the 25-year-old has all the elements for the perfect candidate for Lord Sugar.

In terms of the future Elle is hoping to publish her own children’s book.
