Glenn Ward was booted off The Apprentice last night in a task that involved creating a free magazine.

In an interview after the show on sister programme You’re Fired, design engineer Glenn admitted the truth about his relationship with fellow contestant Zoe Beresford after rumours have swirled about them dating.

“I will not go into detail now. Zoe’s a very good girl, and a strong person. We are good friends and I will stay friends with her.”

He added: “Me and Zoe got on really well and we bonded in that house. It’s a difficult situation, to find friends there is pretty hard but she’s a good girl and we work well together. You can make friends out of this process.”

But interviewer Dara O’Briain continued to grill Glenn about the relationship, asking him “Is there something going on?”

Ward said: “Well, you know, me and Zoe are in contact with each other still and, yeah…”

He added: ‘You know, only time will tell how that goes.”
