The latest candidate to be fired from The Apprentice 2013 has rubbished claims he's sexist.

Last night saw Zeeshaan Shah get the axe in the latest round of Apprentice 2013 results.

Zee was in the final boardroom alongside Leah Totton and Natalie Panayi, with the pair raising questions about his attitudes to women.

"Have you got a problem working with women? You’ve brought two women in here, the only two in your team," Natalie said.

Leah agreed: “I think there is some weight in that. I think he finds it difficult to have a woman who challenges him.”

Hitting back today, Zee said: "I genuinely think Natalie should have gone. She was the weakest link.

“She made spurious allegations against me which I really didn’t appreciate. It was below the belt.

“Yes, it’s a competition but this is being broadcast to the whole country. But I wouldn’t expect much more from her than that. She did accuse me of being sexist. She said a lot more to me than was shown."

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he added: “You saw me reply and tell her to mind her language and it wasn’t because she called me a chauvinist.

“I think she’ll be gone in a couple of weeks.”

The Apprentice continues Wednesday night on BBC One.
