Scott Saunders has branded Selina Waterman-Smith's claims that 'The Apprentice' is fixed as "absolutely ludicrous".

The 27-year-old hopeful quit the show in last night's (02.12.15) episode despite being on the winning team while Selina was sacked by Lord Alan Sugar, and Scott has now spoken out about her recent claims that the show's producers pick their favourites at the beginning of the process and manipulate the show so that they make it to the final.

Scott exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I didn't get any sense that the show was fixed whatsoever. If I was to have done bad in the first task I would have gone home and it's as simple as that. You can't fake somebody's abilities in all of the different tasks, so I think that's an absolutely ludicrous comment to make about the show and I have no feeling of that at all."

Scott insisted he has no regrets about walking out on the competition and the chance to win a £250,000 investment because he couldn't see himself working with Lord Sugar.

He explained: "The main thing for me was, I don't think that me and Lord Sugar would've been happy with each other and I decided at that time on the task that maybe the opportunity was better suited to someone else.

"I think with some of the comments made in the boardroom, there was quite a few of them all in one hit and I just thought, what would it be like actually working for this guy if I'm not enjoying it at this point now."

'The Apprentice' continues next Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One.
