Richard Woods is VERY angry after being fired from The Apprentice 2015 last night.

Richard was one of three candidates to be axed by Lord Sugar in a triple firing following the gruelling interview rounds ahead of Sunday's final.

Now in an series of explosive interviews, he's claimed that the boss was wrong to let him go.

"Alan Sugar has made a big mistake," Richard told The Sun newspaper. “I’m gutted. I went into those interviews as the most successful candidate.

“It was unbelievably frustrating. I still can’t believe I didn’t win. I keep thinking Sugar will call me and say ‘I made a mistake. I confused you with Vana’.”

One of the reasons Lord Sugar fired Richard was because of the business hopeful's conflict of interests in a competing business run with his brother, but Richard responded: “I spent ten years building that company and Sugar wanted me to give it away.

“I wasn’t asking him to give up any of his businesses to work with me.”

Meanwhile, Richard told Claude Littner to "f**k off", although rather wisely not to his face.

Speaking about Claude's scathing comments about him, Richard reacted: "Slippery and having an agenda? What a load of bollocks that is. Are you telling me that nobody has an agenda? We all have an agenda and that's to win the bloody task and to win the whole thing.

"You're political and the rest of it. Of course! I'm here to win. We're not doing a team-building exercise in Wales. This is proper competition and I'll try to win whichever way I can do. So I think that's unfounded."

He added to DigitalSpy: "F**k off, Claude! I've really put myself out there and put my whole life in this process on the line​."

The Apprentice 2015 final airs this Sunday night on BBC One.
