Katie Hopkins, was fired from her real job, her employer confirmed, earlier this week. Katie was also caught in an outdoor romp with a married man and the pictures made their way into the media.
The Met Office, where the 31-year-old worked as a brand consultant, said she failed to pass a probationary period. A spokesman would not comment on reports that she was fired because of her conduct on the show, but said it was an aspect of her review.
While on 'The Apprentice' Katie admitted that she lied and cheated "to get someone else's husband because I wanted him." She also sold her story to the press.
'The Apprentice' finalisits have hit out at Katie's revelations with Simon Ambrose saying, "I come from a broken home and I didn't appreciate Katie's actions...I didn't think it should be something that is congratulated."
Meanwhile Kristina Grimes said, even if Katie never backed out of the final, "She would have eventually got the axe."
Sir Alan Sugar told GMTV, "What I can't understand about Katie is the way she's portrayed herself in such a manner. I'm at a loss to understand what she is doing. People don't like her. I don't understand the lady."
