A GRADUATE of Magdalen College School said she can still hold her head high after becoming the sixth person to be fired from the BBC hit series The Apprentice.

The mighty finger of Lord Sugar was pointed at 26-year-old Katie Wright on Wednesday evening after team Phoenix lost by a paltry £22.

Episode six saw the teams tasked with creating and selling gourmet street food, but Katie’s team mates exploited her disastrous decision to try selling their £5.99 pasta and meatballs outside a football club.

Katie, who says she is ‘Brackley through and through,’ fought her corner in the boardroom, pointing out Azhar Siddique’s lack of input and project manager Adam Cordbally’s ‘cheap as chips’ approach to the gourmet challenge.

But in the end Katie felt she could not recover from her first episode appearance in the boardroom.

Speaking to the Advertiser she said: “It’s been an amazing experience, it’s really sort of like the business Olympics. “But I think the general consensus will be that I should not have been fired.”
