The Apprentice 2016 results: Karthik Nagesan makes shock exit in boardroom first


Karthik Nagesan made a shock exit in The Apprentice 2016 results tonight in a sudden firing.

This evening saw Lord Sugar set the two teams their latest challenge which involved selling products at a boat show.

Both teams had to sell a mix of low and high ticket items, ranging from cheap fish pillows and snorkels to jet skis and speedboats worth tens of thousands of pounds.

When it came to the results there was a clear winner with Frances Bishop leading team Nebula to their first victory this year. She was tearful when, after six consecutive weeks in the boardroom, she got to enjoy a treat.

Frances’ team brought in over £40,000 worth of sales while Karthik, who as project manager of Team Titans, managed less than £200.

It was one of The Apprentice's worst results in history and Lord Sugar showed no mercy when it came to PM Karthik.

Following the return of the loosing team to the boardroom, Lord Sugar shocked the candidates with an instant firing.

“Karthik, listen to me, there is no excuse, you have been a diabolical project manager. I don’t even trust you to bring anybody back into this boardroom. Karthik you’re fired!” Lord Sugar declared.

But that wasn't the end of matters.

After their overwhelming defeat, Lord Sugar asked sub-team leader Grainne who she would bring back into the boardroom, she chose Samuel. Lord Sugar then asked the same question to Dillon, who whilst unsure, ended up volunteering himself and Alana.

Samuel, Dillon and Alana then returned to face Lord Sugar one more was fired.

The Apprentice 2016 continues Thursday nights on BBC One.
