Boardroom Row After The Apprentice Dubai Task
SPOILER ALERT: Team leader refutes sexism allegations after confrontation...
Viewers saw Lord Sugar fire 27-year-old Shah last night after his team lost a task in which they had to source items for a luxury hotel in Dubai.
The property investor found himself in the firing line after putting himself forward as team leader, boasting about his intimate knowledge of the UAE city.
And it was daggers drawn with Leah Totton from that moment on, as the Northern Irish doctor appeared to be simmering with resentment at being passed over for the team leader role.
The team failed to source four out of the eight required items, and got one wrong - losing the task by £90.
Zee opted to take Leah and Natalie Panayi back into the boardroom, where he found himself accused of sexism, with Natalie saying: "You look at me like I'm something on the bottom of the shoe."
Lord Sugar said: "Zee, I think you put yourself forward as someone who knows it all, and clearly you don't know it all.
"You're not a man of modesty but I admire what you've achieved. You've obviously got a good business and I got the feeling, this fella here, everybody has had it in for him.
"Zee your idea of coming into business with me is going to be with international trading in real estate and you've just demonstrated to me that you can't deal internationally. You are to blame for this task. It was out of control. Zee, you're fired."
Speaking after the show, Zee defended himself against the sexism claims.
He said: "These are baseless allegations, I don't know where Natalie pulled it out from. It's completely below the belt and something I'm really not happy about. If you want to lie through your teeth then do it but do it with some respect.
"There were certain parts of the boardroom that were not shown because I don't think they could have been shown. There were certain things she said - you heard me say to her 'can you mind your language' and it wasn't because she called me a male chauvinist."
Uzma Yakoob was fired from the show last week.
