Out: Elle Stevenson was first to go

Lord Sugar has fired three contestants from The Apprentice for only the second time.

Elle Stevenson was eliminated before she even had a chance to name two colleagues for the final boardroom showdown.

The 68-year-old business mogul then sent sales account manager Mergim Butaja and boutique owner April Jackson packing.

Stevenson admitted Lord Sugar had no choice but to let her go. "I would've fired myself," she said.

The candidates had been tasked with setting up a handyman business and generating as much cash as possible over two days.

The first triple firing, outside of the interview rounds, came in the 2014 run of the popular BBC One business-based reality show.
