The Apprentice's David Stevenson has called his exit "outrageous" as he became the latest candidate fired by Lord Sugar.

This week, the business mogul instructed the teams to become children's party planners for two clients with a budget of £2,000 each.

Stevenson, led by Team Versatile project manager Gary Poulton, put on an assault course for birthday boy Jamal. Extras, such as printed party T-shirts and party bags, provided an opportunity for the teams to increase profits.

However, Stevenson failed to produce custom T-shirts that satisfied Jamal's parents and Versatile lost money as a result.

"I think it's outrageous," the 25-year-old said. "I think I was a cheap scapegoat."
