Fired Sandeesh: I'm unmanageable

Fired Apprentice candidate Sandeesh Samra has confessed she is virtually unmanageable.

The 26-year-old recruitment consultant was booted off the show by Lord Sugar after failing to lead her team to victory in Wednesday night's entertainment task.

But she revealed her experience on the show had made her realise she does not like being managed and prefers to work for herself.

Sandeesh said: "There are certain people that I still would work for, like Lord Sugar. I'd love to work for him because he's that kind of black and white person that's very good at what he does. I'd love to learn from him.

"But in terms of working for anybody else, it's not really for me. Which is why I've set up my own company since coming out."

The candidate from Nottingham was project manager of team Synergy, who lost the task to Apollo by making just £40 less profit.

Sandeesh had already been in the boardroom three times and had often been accused by teammates and Lord Sugar's advisors Karren Brady and Nick Hewer of not pulling her weight. But she insisted she was a hard worker, which meant she didn't get noticed as much as some of her rivals on the reality show.

Sandeesh said: "I think the problem was I didn't have a game plan, I didn't have a strategy. I just wanted to be a team player, do everything that I could in conjunction with the team, so that we had a win.

"I think that you'll find some of the other candidates that were very 'me me me' and being very selfish and putting themselves forward for everything, they probably came out earlier than me and were found to be highly annoying."
