The Apprentice candidate Selina Waterman-Smith continues to slag off the programme online despite the fact she's still on the show.

It had been expected that Selina would be fired by Lord Sugar in Wednesday night's episode but Natalie Dean, Sam Curry, and Brett Butler Smythe ended up in the boardroom with Natalie saying her goodbyes.

Despite surviving another week, Selina took to Twitter to say, "Sorry to disappoint but I'm not watching edited b*****ks tonight!  What I will say is this is my favourite task".

The teams were tasked with designing and writing a children's book with accompanying audio.

Selina then added, "1 thing I will say: 5 tasks in and I've been winning PM once and subteam leader twice.  Odd they edit me as so lazy/disliked, hmmm...".

Selina was recently given a "verbal warning" by the show after a physical altercation with fellow contestant Charleine Wain.

The pair had been at loggerheads throughout the third episode of the BBC1 reality show, but things took a turn when events agency owner Waterman-Smith gave her rival "a quick, single push" following a disagreement when Vana Koutsomitis took Elle Stevenson and Jenny Garbis back to the boardroom.

The catfight happened off-screen on the show, which aired on October 21.

Last week, after Ruth Whiteley was fired, Selina took to Twitter to announce she had broken her contract with the show.

The episode showed her having a row with Karren Brady and Claude Littner and afterwards Selina tweeted to say she would not be appearing on spin-off show You're Fired whenever she is ditched from the series by Lord Sugar.

"Ok I'm going to address the situation tonight: Karren was clearly jealous of my dress and Claude of my hair," she tweeted.

She added: "On another note, I've broken contract with the show and I'm not doing You're Fired - might be why they're attacking me so much! Idiots."

However, the second tweet was deleted, but a screengrab is doing the rounds online.

Selina then later tweeted, "So the show have determined I shall be this year's pantomime villain.  I'm embracing it, and off to get my witches [sic] costume for Halloween".

The Apprentice airs on BBC One on Wednesdays at 9pm
