The drama continues with The Apprentice candidate Selina Waterman-Smith as she announces on Twitter that she has broken her contract with the show.

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.

And last night, after the show in which Ruth Whiteley was fired, Selina took to Twitter to announce she had broken her contract.

The episode showed her having a row with Karren Brady adn 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, "When I watch the show next year I won't spend my time slagging off candidates as I will empathise with the shit they went through!"

And added, "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
