Moore shown the Apprentice door

BELLIGERENT contestant Laura Moore was the latest to be fired from The Apprentice.

The 22-year-old business development manager was given her marching orders by Lord Sugar after the girls’ team, Apollo, failed in the latest challenge.

They lost the Treasure Hunt task - which required them to buy ten items at the best possible price - by �70, despite finding everything on the list.

While the boys incurred heavy fines for failing to buy everything, the girls team failed to haggle for the best prices for their bargains.

Moore was constantly seen losing her temper on the BBC1 show, clashing with her fellow candidates and having many heated arguments and rants.

She was fired despite trying to haggle while team mates Stella English and project manager Liz Locke held back on negotiating prices.

Moore said: “On the task, I don’t think the blame was placed on me. But I was against two very strong contenders in there and unfortunately one of us had to go.

“I think when you get to this stage of the process it’s not so much about the task at hand - they have to go back over the series. We all had our strengths and Lord Sugar had a tough decision.”

The Warwickshire businesswoman set a record on The Apprentice when she project-managed the girls’ team in the task to design and sell a new holiday accessory in week two, and they became the first team ever to achieve zero sales.

Moore said: “Obviously, it wasn’t a shining moment, it was disappointing. But after the first task the girls had done so well, we were such a great team that in the second week all the personalities started to come out, everyone wants to start shining as a person.

“It was a bit like herding cats is the way I would put it. It was a bit of a challenge.”
