Natasha Scribbins became the latest candidate to be fired from 'The Apprentice' last night (13.07.11).
The 31-year-old recruitment manager narrowly lost out on a place in the final of the BBC One show to fellow hopefuls Helen Milligan, Tom Pellereau, Jim Eastwood and Susan Ma after failing to impress in a task which saw the contestants set up and brand a new fast food restaurant.
On delivering his verdict, multi-millionaire business mogul Lord Alan Sugar said: "It's a very, very difficult decision I have to make now because you have come through 11 weeks of gruelling pressure.
"Natasha, I can't reconcile some of the things that have happened today. You started off like a house on fire but I have found you a little lacklustre in the last few weeks."
However, the Taunton-based businesswoman wishes she could have "jumped in the screen" and given herself more energy to prove to the technology expert just how much working with him meant to her.
She said: "I think I showed him a lot of energy at the beginning but I think the weakness that he saw was that I didn't carry it through to the end.
"I just wanted to jump in the screen and give myself an extra energy boost as I think I gave so much in the beginning, so much energy and drive, that by the time I got to the end I just ran out of gas."
Helen, Tom, Jim and Susan will now battle it out in the 'Apprentice' final this Sunday (17.07.11) in the hope of securing a £250,000 investment in the business of their choice from Lord Alan Sugar.
