Glenn Ward became the latest candidate to be fired from 'The Apprentice' last night (15.06.11).

The 28-year-old design engineer - who failed to impress in a task which saw the teams create their own magazines and then sell advertising space - was given the boot by Lord Alan Sugar after the technology mogul admitted he couldn't envisage himself starting a new business alongside an engineer.

While he didn't land a lucrative partnership with the multi-millionaire entrepreneur, Glenn was thrilled to have taken part in the BBC One show after finding romance with fellow contestant Zoe Beresford.

Glenn exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Zoe and I get on really well. It's going really well between the two of us."

However, the Hertfordshire-based businessman hit back at claims made by former contestant Edna Agbarha, who criticised the pair for letting their relationship cloud their judgement in tasks.

He said: "I completely disagree with that. Every single task we kept totally professional and none of our personal feelings were ever involved in the decisions we made."

Glenn is now backing Zoe to win the whole competition.

He added: "I think Zoe has done fantastically in what she's done so far on the show. She's a very strong character with very strong opinions and I think she could go on to win it."

There will be a debate on how Lord Sugar was dismissive of the "engineer" and I am certain he will get heavy critical chatter of what was his personal experience choice. Engineers do nurture excellent disciplines and skill sets but Lord Sugar was not critical of the engineering profession but of his personal experiences with them and it would appear they failed him!!! As far as the task was concerned the failure of Jim was remarkable right from the start; from the choice of a very poor title of magazine (Hip Replacement) to his low negotiation skills of rates. Further proof of Jim's tenacity capabilities was evident with what Lord Sugar called "bullshit". This was made very clear when the impeccable and honest Nick Hewer made very valid objections to Jim's poor showing. If you'll rewind the tapes you will see how Jim retained criticism from Nick Hewer and Lord Sugar in his head and then in the ensuing five minutes he covered every angle on his various huge mistakes with clever sentences that only the very intelligent would know as "bullshit". It's pleasing that Susan Ma is still making strong points in the tasks despite the huge brigade of hatred from the likes of Zoe and Jim. Overall it was one of those tasks where Glenn or Jim or Zoe (her title idea!) could have have got fired but one of the three did and that is correct indeed in my opinion.

Best Regards,
