Swindon's Apprentice hopeful Kathryn Louise Burn has made it past week three of the competition despite her team failing to impress Lord Alan Sugar.

Now the businesswoman, born and bred in Swindon, has addressed some of her more memorable moments so far, including the infamous 'bouji' pitch.

"I found the whole thing nerve-wracking," she told The Adver

"I come across as a very confident person on the show, but the whole time I'm secretly nervous. In the board room my hands are under the table and they're going crazy."

In the first episode she was flustered when asked to explain what the name she chose for her cruise company - Bouji - meant.

"I wanted the ground to swallow me up,," she said.

"I've never pitched before, but I thought I just needed to go for it and push myself and I definitely did that.

"I was so nervous for that pitch so when they asked the question 'what is a bouji activity' I just couldn't explain what it means.

“I still think it’s a good name, the people that would go on Bouji Cruises would know what it meant.”

In the second episode Kathryn had a hand in designing a toothbrush for children aged 6-8, but went rogue after choose not to deliver the plain orange toothbrush project manager Francesca wanted.

“I don’t think we would’ve won if I didn’t step in and do something, Francesca was good with the pitch and the vision, but I don’t think a plain orange toothbrush would’ve done it and I don’t think it would’ve won it, I’m glad I did that.”

Kathryn added that all of the candidates are incredibly smart and successful business people but that the process is what makes them often make bad decisions. 

“You’re under time constraints, there’s a lot of things you don’t see, everyone is credible, intelligent and very good but ultimately it's an entertainment program.

“I can’t explain to you the pressure you’re under, with Tim or Karen watching you, it just makes you go all funny, there's the pressure of the task, the pressure of Lord Sugar, extremely long days, you're up at 4am in the morning and you're doing things you’ve never done before.”

On this week's episode Kathryn had to come up with a new non-alcoholic beer and her work she did as part of the design sub-team came under fire as being a bit 'basic and traditional'.

But she avoided being picked to return to the board room and put at risk of being fired.
