Joy is second Apprentice candidate fired by Lord Sugar

THE latest axed Apprentice candidate Joy Stefanicki has claimed that she was fired because she “didn’t make good television.”

The 31-year-old, from Birmingham, was fired after her team - the girls led by Laura Moore - failed to make a single sale of their product, a book stand for the beach, in the latest task.

She said: “It’s come across that I didn’t particularly participate. The truth is that I didn’t participate in the madness.

“I did participate but it probably didn’t make such good television. I wasn’t prepared to do it in a way that discredited myself.’’

Stefanicki, who was made redundant from a high-flying job in New York before the show, also admitted that she was frightened of the diminutive Lord Sugar despite her business background.

She added: “I was surprised. I didn’t expect to be as intimidated by him as I was. I think part of that is that he has the celebrity angle now and because he is Lord Sugar.

“When he pointed his finger at me I swear it was like it went through my whole body.”
