Apprentice candidate Lauren Riley loses fizz in drink task

By Katie Archer

Apprentice candidate Lauren Riley's American dream turned into a nightmare when she was fired following a business trip to New York.

The 28-year-old solicitor lost her place last night after a task to design and advertise a soft drink for the US market.

Riley's team lost with a lacklustre pitch and poor label design for Aqua Fusion.

Riley, who was criticised for giving a dull pitch to a room of US marketing executives, claimed she had been unfairly portrayed by the way the programme was edited.

"To see the episode focus on a couple of seconds of poor presentation but ignore 20 minutes that were great, that is really hard to take," she said.
