Gabrielle Omar and Stephen Brady are the latest contestants to be sent home from this year's series of the Apprentice, after a shock double firing.
The pair were sent home by Lord Sugar following a disastrous discount negotiating task.
The firing leaves Ricky Martin as the sole survivor on Team Stirling.
Stirling was lead by Stephen, as part of a deal made with Sugar in last week's episode, and the team made a total of £6,440 from three of their nine offers being made live on the discount website.
However, the Jade Nash-headed Team Phoenix eclipsed their profits, earning a grand total of £14,563 from two of their six deals.
In the boardroom, blame initially fell on Martin, however Sugar's aide Karren Brady stated they had been "as bad as each other".
Bringing Stirling back, it was Omar who got the boot first, with the ex-Amstrad boss blasting her for not contributing to the task much "at all".
Once Gabrielle had left the boardroom, Sugar reminded Stephen of his promise last week that he would lead Stirling to victory, opting to send him home as well for failing to deliver:
"There's no smoke without fire, Stephen. You asked me for the chance to be the project manager, I gave you the chance.
"You told me you were going to win, you didn't win, you lost. I think on that basis I've made a decision, and that is that - you're also fired."
Keep up with the Apprentice Wednesday nights at 9pm on BBC One.
