Apprentice 2012: Bilyana Apostolova blasts Lord Sugar for making fun of her 'sob story'

Lord Sugar

Fired Apprentice candidate Bilyana Apostolova has hit out at Lord Sugar for making fun of her "sob story".

We saw last night how Bilyana talked her way into getting fired, after repeatedly telling the boss about how she worked her way from Bulgaria to London's financial centre.

At one point the 25-year-old even resorted to bragging about being made head girl.

But Lord Sugar didn't pay any attention, instead poking fun at her attempts to avoid the axe.

Speaking after her exit last night, Bilyana told The Sun: "He humiliated me with his response.

"He said, 'Let's not get the violin out.' I thought that was quite ironic."

She explained: "Always, he says, 'I'm an East End boy from the back of the truck to one of the top guys... I was trying to bond with him.

"I shouldn't have gone. I've seen him credit people for sticking up for themselves which was the effect I was after — not the opposite and getting fired.

"You're under the spotlight and you don't get time to pick your words carefully and things come out as a bit of a rant."
