Harrison Jones and Jade English became the latest casualties of the boardroom during tonight's episode (December 6) of The Apprentice.

This week's challenge saw the contestants try their hands at being fashion agents.

Tasked to sell a range of garments from up-and-coming designers, the teams had to select a designer, then plan and organise a catwalk show.

They also had to put together a magazine cover to amplify their sales campaign.

However, after failing to make a decent pitch, secure a decent commission and ultimately losing the task, Team Vitality project manager Jade was left with no choice but to take Harrison and Sarah back into the boardroom, as they were the only other members of the team.

The three candidates were grilled by Lord Sugar in the boardroom, where Harrison failed to prove he did anything of value during the task and Jade was slammed for her poor decision-making as project manager.

After firing Harrison first, Lord Sugar then decided to get rid of Jade as well.

"Feeling gutted to go out at the last task, but I will still make a success of my business," said Harrison. "I'll be a household name."

"I took a risk with this task. It didn't pay off, but overall, I really did deserve to be in the final five," added Jade.

Five candidates now remain in the competition... which means next week is the week we've all been waiting for.

Yep. Elizabeth, Sarah, Joanna, James and Michaela will all be put through their paces by Lord Sugar's business associates to determine whose business plan is a winner, as the final five are whittled down to the final two.

Exciting times.

The Apprentice continues at 9pm next Wednesday (December 12) on BBC One.
