The Apprentice 2013 results: Natalie Panayi says Lord Sugar was right to fire her

The Apprentice S9 - Ep 7 -  Natalie Panayi - Embargoed 22.01pm 12th June

Fired Apprentice 2013 candidate Natalie Panayi has admitted Lord Sugar was right to get rid of her.

Natalie was fired on last night's show in a shock double exit, as the boss kicked both her and Kurt Wilson out in the latest Apprentice 2013 firing result.

It was Natalie's third trip to the boardroom and her sixth time on the losing team, having competed in seven tasks.

“Kurt deserved to go for the wrong product choice," Natalie said today.“But I let myself down by not being mouthy enough and not listening to my gut feeling."

Lord Sugar told her last night: "You’ve had a hell of a lot of chances in this process. And you haven’t proved yourself to me at all. Natalie, you’re fired.”

Speaking to The Sun this morning, Natalie explained: “It’s about being heard, saying the right thing and not taking any crap.

“Instead I went into myself as I was so worried about suggesting something and then losing the task. Lord Sugar saying I hadn’t proved myself was completely fair."

However Natalie claimed that Lord Sugar wasn't all that scary in real life!

“It really wasn’t as daunting as I expected. Lord Sugar is similar to my dad," she told the tabloid. “They are both quite fiery and I’m fiery, too. I have a lot of time for Lord Sugar and would love to work with him in the future.”
