It comes after Denisha left Lord Sugar ‘unimpressed’ with her people skills.
During week four the candidates were sent to Brighton, with Denisha being appointed project manager by Lord Sugar to prove herself after failing last weeks task.
As Lord Sugar delivered his damning final verdict and fired Denisha, he said in the boardroom: ‘Denisha, you had your chance to show me whether you were any good at logistics and dealing with people.
‘And I’m very sorry to say that you have not impressed me. So it is with regret, Denisha, that you’re fired.’
Speaking in the taxi after her firing, Denisha said: ‘I’m gutted I’m not going to be there next week. It’s been an amazing opportunity and an amazing experience; I’ve watched the show for years and been a fan of the show for years.
‘To get to the point where I’ve met Lord Sugar has been incredible. I applied for it because I really wanted to win the investment, but you know, everything happens for a reason.
Ambitious: Denisha works as a financial controller in Leicestershire and before the show started, she admitted she’s not afraid of getting out of her comfort zone

She describes herself as ‘strong, motivated and hard-working’ and says she can work under pressure, overcoming both professional and personal tests to reach success.
Denisha said she wanted the investment opportunity because she wants to ‘be mentored by the best to be the best.’
She argues she deserves it, because: ‘I’m a woman who wants to create an empire and have it all; to be able to provide for my family and to be an inspiration to young women. I dream big, but I work extra hard and know everything is possible.’
