Fired 'Apprentice' blasts show rivals
Fired Apprentice candidate Rocky Andrews has insisted that Sir Alan Sugar made the wrong decision in getting rid of him.

Sandwich chain owner Andrews was axed after leading the boys' team to a loss in a catering challenge. However, the 21-year-old argued that he was one of the few contestants with something to offer.

"I don't think it was a fair firing," he told DS. "I don't reckon the other candidates had much to offer to be honest.

"As soon as a food task came up, you could see a glint in all the guys' eyes. They knew if we won, it would be great, but if we lost I would be up for the chop. But I have no regrets because I'm not someone to shirk responsibility."

Speaking about his rivals, Andrews said: "James did nothing, Howard did nothing, Noorul did nothing, Maj did nothing. Ben didn't do much. How can you put yourself forward and get fired!

"What does Sir Alan want? Someone who sits back in the car and does nothing? They all knew I was strong competition in there. They will all have slept a lot better knowing they are a step closer and I've gone. They all know that I shouldn't have gone."

Singling out senior commercial manager James McQuillan for criticism, Andrews added: "In the boardroom, Sir Alan went along all of us and asked who we all thought should get fired and every single man said James.

"Everyone on the task knows what went on and knows who should have got fired. It should have been James gone. He doesn't do anything on the tasks... he's bringing nothing to the table."
