Edward Hunter isn't letting his firing from The Apprentice 2011 spoil his plans for the future. The 25-year-old account (as if you didn't know) says he wants to bring a taste of Afghan inspired food and fishes to British shores, and hopes the show will help investors to come forward.
Edward , first to be kicked out of the boardroom on yesterday's show, said: "The background is that I'm half-Afghan, so I love Afghanistan, I'm half-English, so I love England. We've been there for ten years [at war] and I don't feel the British population know anything about Afghanistan when it comes to food or culture."
In an interview with DigitalSpy, Edward continued: "So I want Britain to taste Afghan food. I'm going to launch Atta's Afghan Josh. People will like it, because people like curries. I want people to go, 'We've been here ten years, we know nothing about the country, rather than get an Indian curry, we'll get an Afghan one'. Also, on top of that, I want to give some money to Help for Heroes.
"Like plenty of Afghans, I love what these men and women are doing to keep the country secure and safe and I support them. That's a message people are not seeing. I'd like the press to go to town on that point."
And despite joining the exclusive club of the first fired candidates, Edward said: "I think regrets are a choice. I choose not to have regrets."
Meanwhile The Apprentice 2011 continues on tonight on BBC One at 9PM.
