Dan Callaghan 'probably deserved' sacking on The Apprentice
Dan Callaghan thinks he "probably deserved" to be the first candidate sent home on 'The Apprentice'.
The 23-year-old fragrance retailer director was sent home by Lord Alan Sugar in the first episode of the new series of the entrepreneurial competition last night (14.10.15) after his team made a pathetic total profit of just over £1 in the first task while he failed to sell a single item.
Dan admitted: "I think in a sense I probably got what was coming to me ... I genuinely thought I could wing it! You see it on the telly and you think, 'How hard can it be?' But at the same time, when you are actually put into a position where you have to sell something to people who aren't interested in it for a start, it's difficult.
"And I never truly realised how difficult it would be until I actually tried to do it. I got what I deserved, really!"
Dan also addressed his plan to call his team the Sugababes, insisting it was only a joke.
He told Digital Spy: "Everyone seems to think it was serious! No, it was a joke. Some people in the team genuinely looked at me like I was being serious. No, it was a joke. That wouldn't have gone down well, but I would have loved it! it's a shame, but we went for Connexus. I'm still not sure what that means."
'The Apprentice' continues tonight (15.10.15) at 9pm on BBC One.
