'The Apprentice' candidate Selina Waterman-Smith was given a "verbal warning" by producers of the BBC One show after she shoved one of her rivals
'The Apprentice's Selina Waterman-Smith was given a "verbal warning" after she shoved one of her rivals.
The 31-year-old entrepreneur - who is vying for a £250,000 investment from Lord Alan Sugar - allegedly had an altercation with fellow contestant Charleine Wain when the pair left the boardroom following filming for the third episode.
A spokesperson said: "The incident, which resulted in Selina being given a verbal warning, was dealt with quickly and professionally. Both women decided to stay in the process after discussions with the production team.
"We take our duty of care to the candidates very seriously and strongly refute any allegations to the contrary."
Meanwhile, Selina claimed she is being "abused" online by her rival after the explosive scenes aired last week.
Writing on Twitter, she shared: "I think it's pretty obvious by the constant verbal attacks shown in TV who the bully is, not to mention the continued cyber abuse.
"Nobody gave me any warning, I was promised to be separated from her on future tasks and in the house, that was the only reason I stayed.
"Very scary to have this girl still attacking and threatening me, but I'm speaking out about the abuse/bullying: I look so unhappy on tv :(
"Producers don't see everything, like snatching, jostling, snide comments and "off camera" things, but they might see self-defense from me. (sic)"
