Gbemi Okunlola has been fired from the Young Apprentice by Lord Sugar after feeling the heat on the deodorant task.

The 16-year-old Londoner, who is studying Fashion, was singled out by Kinetic’s project manager after their Vanity product failed.

But project manager Harry M was angry after his team turned on him.

“This is all getting a bit pathetic and a bit erratic. I’m not going to stoop to that level. I’m going to keep my integrity in tact so just save it,” he said.

In the boardroom Harry M quickly delivered a strong defence and told Lord Sugar: “This team were quite a hard team to manage but they gelled together under my leadership… James you tried to cause trouble every step of the way.”

He decided to bring back Gbemi for her poor product design and James for his disruptions but back in the boardroom an onslaught against the PM continued.

Gbemi said: “You didn’t listen to anyone else in the team. It is not all about you Harry M it is about the people in the team as well.”

But Lord Sugar made up his mind. “Harry this is the fifth time you have been in the losing team, there’s got to be a reason.

“James you came into this process like a bull in a china shop but you have improved. Gbemi, you’re a designer and it is in my opinion the main culprit in the failure of this task.”

As she was driven away Gbemi said: “This definitely isn’t going to put me off the designing that I do. With every mistake I make I learn to make it 100 times better.”
