Married At First Sight’s Rebecca Zemek is FIRED on Celebrity Apprentice after tense boardroom showdown with Turia Pitt

Rebecca Zemek certainly ruffled some feathers during Sunday night’s premiere of Celebrity Apprentice.

The Married At First Sight star was fired by Lord Alan Sugar after Turia Pitt accused her of being ‘manipulative’ during their first challenge.

Turia chose to summon Bec and The Real Housewives Of Melbourne star Gamble Breaux into the boardroom with her.

It wasn’t long before she accused Bec of being ‘manipulative’ and ‘patronising towards her during the golf challenge.

‘I felt Bec was manipulative, condescending and patronising towards me,’ Turia said.

‘I think when you’re in a team, you need to trust your teammates and because of Bec’s behaviour towards me, I don’t trust her.’

A stunned Bec responded: ‘I’m gobsmacked I’m in this room right now. I was happy to do any task whatsoever.’

‘There is people in the room that made less money than I did,’ she told Lord Sugar.

But he wasn’t impressed, responding: ‘I’m not talking about money. I’m talking about being a team player.’

'I felt Bec was manipulative, condescending and patronising towards me. I think when you're in a team, you need to trust your teammates and because of Bec's behaviour towards me, I don't trust her,' Turia said

‘Clearly from what I heard you’ve underperformed. Business is about working as a team and Bec I don’t think you’re a very good team player.’

‘Bec you’re fired,’ Lord Sugar said.

During the challenge, the female celebrities raised $235,000 while the male stars raised an impressive $365,000.

'Clearly from what I heard you've underperformed. Business is about working as a team and Bec I don't think you're a very good team player. Bec you're fired,' Lord Sugar said
