Fired Apprentice Hopeful Warns Of 'Aggressive' Team-mate

by | 26 March 2009

Debra Barr, a contestant on the new series of The Apprentice, is overly aggressive, according to her fired team-mate Anita Shah.

Shah was the first aspiring entrepreneur sacked from the BBC1 show on Wednesday evening after the girl's Ignite team failed a cleaning task.

And though business strategist Shah got the boot having been in control of the team's spending, she said Debra and Mona Lewis could both have been fired.

"I think they're both good candidates," she told Digital Spy.

"Debra did have very, very aggressive behaviour, which may make her unpopular if she doesn't keep an eye on it....Mona has a real drive to her and I think both of them could go very far."

Shah, a qualified lawyer who had spoken of her "strong" CV and talent for making "impactful statements" prior to the show, admitted she found it "devastating" to be the first contestant fired by Sir Alan Sugar.

"Ultimately [Mona] didn't actually complete the job and I think she should have gone," she added.
