HARRY Maxwell was sensationally fired by Lord Sugar in the Young Apprentice last night (Monday) after a showdown in the boardroom.

Harry, who is a student at Rugby School and lives in nearby Brixworth, was on the losing team once again in the hit TV series last night.

Harry and fellow contestants Harry Hitchens and Lizzie Magee were all fired after their team, Atomic, received lower orders of popcorn than their rivals in this week’s challenge.

Atomic had a total of 90,000 orders, whereas Kinetic had 115,000 orders.

Lord Sugar said to them: “Well guys, in life someone wins and someone loses, but it’s not all bad news. Harry M, in all the years I’ve been working in this boardroom, I’ve never met someone as unlucky as you because you did not deserve to not have a win under your belt.

“Lizzie, you are straightforward, honest and you say it how it is, so don’t ever change because that’s what I like to do, too. Harry H, you’ve been an all-round great performer, you made some great negotiations and I’m sorry that we’re parting in this way. It’s been a pleasure working with you and I wish you the best for the future.”

Haya Al Dlame from the other team was other fire after project manager James McCullagh said: “If I could pick someone who we could have probably done the task without, that would have to be Haya.”

Lord Sugar said: “Haya, you do seem to be determined, you’re not afraid to take risks but I haven’t seen any creativity.

“James, it’s your way or no way and I wonder whether a leopard will change its spots. Zara, you’re one of the most eloquent speakers I’ve come across in this boardroom. My only concern is whether you’re going to dirty your hands or not. It’s such a tough decision with three great people here. Haya, I’m really, really sorry to say this but I’m going to ask you to leave the process.”

The remaining contestants, James and Zara Brownless, will battle it out next week to be crowned this year’s Young Apprentice.
