Liz: How can Sugar fire me?


By CARA LEE

Published: Today

APPRENTICE reject Liz Locke is still in shock at being fired instead of buffoon Stuart Baggs - and reckons the big-talker beat her by telling Lord Sugar "fairytales".

Tears%20...%20Liz%20Locke
Tears ... Liz Locke
The ex-favourite, 24, says the guru fell for "tweaked" stories spun by the super-confident brat in last night's boardroom.

Brummie Liz fumed to TV Biz: "I was shocked to get fired. It became a really strange boardroom where Stuart had a really elaborate way of schmoozing Lord Sugar. It was a surreal experience. I was annoyed - we didn't discuss much of the task."

Stuart - who introduced himself in the first episode announcing: "I'm Stuart Baggs the brand - everything I touch turns to sold" - had bombed in last night's challenge. He was project manager for his team's bid to flog London bus tours and led them to disaster by setting prices too high.

Liz had outsold him on ticket sales by two to one on the task - as well as being a star in earlier challenges.

But she said all this counted for nothing once Stuart, 21, started crafting stories about his background that made him sound just like East End boy-made-good Sugar. Banker Liz, who welled up in tears after getting the shove said: "I think he saw himself in Stuart - that maybe Stuart was like him.

"But maybe it was Stuart being incredibly clever - having done the research on Sugar's background and then tweaking it into what he'd done. It was bizarre. I could see Lord Sugar's eyes lighting up with affection towards Stuart. I sank in my seat thinking, 'Where do I go from here?'. I'm glad I can walk away with my head held high - I didn't tell any elaborate fairytales. I think Lord Sugar made a mistake in firing me."

The businesswoman - engaged to Preston North End and Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Wayne Henderson, 27 - now hopes to cash in on her time on the BBC1 hit.

Liz explained: "I want to use what I learnt in the process to help me get the job I'm looking for."

As much as I can't stand people whinging on, she has a point.

Baggs bragged about being director of a company with a 3 million pound turnover.  If true, then what is he doing applying for a junior job with Amstrad?!
