"it looks like it’s me versus Marnie"

Following his exit from The Apprentice, Sohail Chowdhary has opened up about the apparent spats with some of his fellow candidates.

The martial arts instructor was fired after his team’s pirate-themed treasure chest lunchbox failed to impress industry experts.

Sohail admitted that his firing was “fair”.

He said: “I do think it was fair. When seeing the episode I think it was a fair firing. When it comes down to it, the mistakes were kinda there.

“I couldn’t agree with it more than anything, which is unusual to say but that’s my opinion.”

On the show, Sohail said he stood by his product. But he has now backtracked on the statement.

He said in hindsight he would have liked to have had more time to develop the product and make it “more appealing”.

Sohail also addressed his spat with Marnie Swindells.

Throughout the episode, the pair both wanted to be the project manager, with Sohail getting the top job, which ultimately got him fired.

He explained: “You’ve got Marnie on the show, for example, and it looks like it’s me versus Marnie but I can tell you now, we had so many moments.

“On the motorbike task, that was a crazy, hectic one.

“Marnie was a bit down because things were not going her way and on the drive back, we ended up having a completely random sing-along.

“We were just singing in the back of the van on the way to the house and it was one hell of a moment.

“But on screen, it looks like it’s me and Marnie against each other. There’s a lot that happens outside of it. It’s never quite how it looks.”

Sohail also reflected on his dynamic with Joseph Phillips was portrayed on The Apprentice with the pair initially seeming to be clashing.

He continued: “But likewise at the same time, it’s me and Joe on the first one, we ended up having a bit of a spat in the first episode in Antigua. We were kinda at each other.

“Then afterwards we became such good friends and when we were in the house, we ended up – Joe has a guitar, he knows how to play guitar. He ended up teaching me how to do that.

“He’s basically teaching me how to serenade girls, that’s what it is.

“I was teaching him martial arts as well and we were having really good fun with that as well.”

Despite the clashes portrayed on the show, Sohail said he got on with all of the candidates, adding that he remained in touch with a lot of them and had made “lifelong friends”.

Sohail is now focusing on his business AGMA Martial Arts for All.

Reflecting on why he went on The Apprentice, Sohail said he was looking to inspire others from working-class backgrounds.

“I was that kid from the council estate who had nothing growing up. Literally, no income, no money, single-parent household as well.

“That was the case since I was seven years old or something like that.

“One of the reasons I came on the show was to show people no matter where you’re from, you can make it at the end of the day.”
