There is only one week of The Apprentice series 16 left after the dramatic interviews episode.

The semi-final saw an all-female line-up for the first time since 2015 with Stephanie, Harpreet, Kathryn and Brittany facing Lord Sugar's aides. 

After grilling the final four in the boardroom, Lord Sugar chose who he wanted to take through to the final next week.

He told Steff and Brittany that they should rethink their ideas after they didn't sit well with him. 

He sent Brittany home saying: "You are a very intelligent young lady and you've got a very good job.

"I can't for the life of me see why you've gone in this direction. I'm hoping you rethink your idea.

"It is with regret that Brittany you're fired."

After a final chat with Karen and Tim, he then sent Steff home, telling her: "I think you've underestimated the complexity of the business you're going into.

"It needs more thought. The pre-loved market is not a market that's loved by me. You're fired."
