Rebecca Jeffery isn't bitter about being the sixth contestant to leave 'The Apprentice', as she admitted to struggling with missing her three-year-old son

Rebecca Jeffery was "happy" she was fired from 'The Apprentice' because it was "killing" her not seeing her little boy.

The 31-year-old Design and Marketing business owner - who was given the boot in Thursday (10.11.16) night's show - felt ready to leave the competition when she did because she hated being away from her three-year-old son every day.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "By that point, I had also lost heart of it all a little bit because I was really missing my little boy, he's three-and-a-half and I normally pick him up everyday. It was really killing me and I was struggling not to have, kind of a hurt heart. When I got fired and knew that I was going to see my little boy the next day, I was happy".

The entrepreneur also insisted there is no bad blood between her and Lord Sugar because she expected to get the boot.

She said: "To be honest, I have lost every single task, I had been in the board room twice before, hadn't really done anythig that was really amazing or shone, so I think the decision was quite fair. I am quite genuine, I think Karren (Brady) said I was quite sincere as well, even when he fired me I think I had a smile on my face as well and when Trishna and Sofianne came out the room, I gave them a really big hug."

Despite missing out on the business investment, Rebecca insisted that she will be happy to see one of her fellow competitors take the £250,000 winnings as she hopes either children's clothing owner Frances Bishop, Novelty Gifts company owner Courtney Woods or make-up boss Grainne McCoy take the winning title next month.

'The Apprentice' will return to screens on November 17 at 9pm on BBC One.
