Stephen And Gabrielle Go In Apprentice Double Firing
Lord Sugar gets rid of two candidates in dramatic boardroom showdown...
Gabrielle Omar and Stephen Brady have become the latest two contestants to be fired by The Apprentice.
The pair were given the boot in a dramatic boardroom showdown in last night's show - with only Ricky Martin surviving from the losing team.
Gabrielle was first to find herself on the end of the famous finger after their resounding loss in the task - which had involved sourcing bargains for a "daily deals" website.
Lord Sugar told her: "Gabrielle, I don't think you contributed much in this task at all, to be honest with you.
"I'd just like to reiterate that it's the person who I feel is most responsible for the lack of contribution in the task that leaves, and on that basis I’ve got to say that Gabrielle, as nice a person that you are, it is with regret that – you're fired."
But before Stephen could even breathe a sigh of relief, he found himself in the firing line too.
Lord Sugar went on: "There's no smoke without fire. Stephen – you asked me for the chance to be the project manager, I gave you the chance.
"You told me you were going to win, you didn't win, you lost. On that basis I've made a decision, and that is that - you're also fired."
Gabrielle was upbeat on her lonely cab ride away from the boardroom.
She said: "Plans for me now are really just to get to grips with the businesses I already have and to make them a success and show everyone that behind this smile there is a brain and I'm going to go far in life."
Meanwhile, Stephen was finding it hard to get over his mistake in not sending anyone to try to strike a deal with a health spa in Tring.
He said: "I only wish I could turn back time and if I could I would have stuck to my gut feeling."
