Apprentice contestant Natalie Panayi managed to avoid being on the receiving end of Lord Sugar’s trademark ‘You’re Fired’ finger pointing last night, despite being the project manager on the losing team.

The recruitment consultant from Chipperfield was thrust into the spotlight of the BBC show after heading up the girls in the flat pack challenge.

She has been dubbed a ‘little Spitfire’ by a fellow contestant after battling it out in the boardroom to stay in the running to go into business with Lord Sugar.

But, after firing Sophie Lau, the multi-millionaire tycoon had words of warning for the surviving girls - Natalie and Uzma Yakoob.

He said: “I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt here Natalie.”

He also told the pair: “I have got my eyes on you.”
