Felicity Jackson became the latest candidate to be fired on 'The Apprentice' last night (25.05.11).
The 24-year-old entrepreneur had to face the wrath of Lord Alan Sugar in the boardroom when Team Logic - of which she was the project manager - brought in a loss of £247 on a task which required the groups to sell beauty treatments to the public.
However, the blonde businesswoman insists fellow contestants Ellie Reed and Natasha Scribbins stabbed her in the back when it came to the infamous boardroom showdown.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I do stand by saying that I was stabbed in the back, but at the end of the day it's a competition and everyone was in there to save themselves. If you're not prepared to fight to stay there then the show isn't right for you."
Despite a frosty goodbye between the trio, which saw Felicity refuse to shake hands with her former candidates, she maintains they are "good friends".
She added: "Everyone thinks the way I left was this big deal and that we all hate each other, but I am actually quite good friends with Ellie and Natasha."
The only thing the London-based creative arts expert regrets during her time on the BBC One show is letting down Lord Sugar, as the multi-millionaire technology mogul has always been her business "inspiration".
Felicity explained: "It was a real disappointment. I have always been inspired by Lord Sugar and I just felt disappointed in myself for the outcome of the task.
"Being in the boardroom very scary experience and very nerve-wracking. It almost winds you when you go in there. You feel out of breath, hot under the collar, you have to think about what you're going to say, what the right words are going to be. It really is a scary prospect sitting in front of Lord Sugar."
