Edward Hunter - the first candidate to be fired on this year's 'The Apprentice' - claims he ''isn't intimidated'' by Lord Alan Sugar

Edward Hunter "isn't intimidated" by Lord Alan Sugar.

The 25-year-old accountant - who became the first candidate to be booted off the BBC One show last night (10.05.11) - thinks the multi-millionaire businessman has made a big mistake by firing him because he would have made Lord Sugar "millions".

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I don't think he knew what to make of me - I would have made him millions with my product, so it's his loss.

"He's not intimidating at all, I wasn't scared of Lord Sugar! Facing him in the boardroom wasn't an intimidating experience."

After Edward - who was project manager on the losing team in a challenge which saw the 16 candidates given £250 to invest in fresh fruit and vegetables and tasked with bringing Lord Sugar the most money back to the boardroom - was fired, he was called back by the technology mogul.

However, when Lord Sugar offered him a word of advice, the Reading-based businessman shot him a potent glare, which he now claims was "acting" on his part.

Edward added: "That was just all a bit of drama, it was put on really. That's what they want when they take you on the show though isn't it? You couldn't pay for that look I gave him - it was great acting.

"They wanted drama, and that's what I gave them."
