The Apprentice 2016 candidate Natalie Hughes has admitted she had never seen the show before.

For real.

Scottish Natalie was given the boot in last night's episode and couldn't wait to leave.

Lord Sugar gave her the axe for doing nothing more than 'cutting hair and sweeping up' during the latest task.

Karren Brady told Natalie in the boardroom: "Cleaning and hair dressing aren't skills Lord Sugar is looking for."

Speaking after her exit last night, Natalie revealed she had NEVER even seen The Apprentice, explaining how a family member had suggested she apply.

"I had never watched it before, so I didn't know how it went - I was just going with the flow," Natalie confessed. "I didn't know what to expect, to be honest. I'd watched one or two clips on YouTube. If I'd done my homework maybe I would have been a bit more prepared!"

Speaking to DigitalSpy, Natalie declared she felt "fantastic" after being fired after two weeks and already packed her bags.

"I wanted to go," she told the website. "I'd packed the night before. I wasn't walking away, I wasn't giving up, but it was my time to go.

"I wanted to tell [project manager] Jessica [Cunningham] to pick me [to come back into the Boardroom] but I was like, 'No, that's cheating', so I just went with the flow."

Natalie concluded: "It just wasn't for me. I wouldn't change anything else but I think somebody else deserved the opportunity."

The Apprentice 2016 continues Thursday nights on BBC One at 9PM.
