Jack Davies and Amina Khan have been fired on 'The Apprentice'.

The duo have both been sent home by Lord Alan Sugar, after they failed to impress the businessman during the fourth task.

For the latest episode, the contestants all headed to the island of Jersey, where they were tasked with securing nine separate items under time and budgetary constraints.

One of the teams was ultimately fined more than £200, with Lord Sugar describing it as the "worst performance" during the task.

The 76-year-old businessman subsequently chose to fire Jack and Amina from the show.

Jack has now admitted that his team didn't have a suitable "strategy" for the task.

Jack - who served as his team's project manager - told The Mirror: "Anyone could have gone but in that scenario, it then automatically goes back to the project manager and probably the sub project manager for Lord Sugar to ask, ‘What's the underlying issues here? Why did they lose?’

"Some of the strategy could have been better, but at the end of the day, we didn't negotiate as well as the other team and that's why we lost the task. If we all negotiated better individually, we would have won."

On the other hand, Amina has questioned whether she should have been fired at all.

The entrepreneur - who has her own successful supplement business - told The Mirror: "I don't think I should have gone.

"I think Lord Sugar didn't give me a chance to showcase my business acumen.

"I have the most profitable business in the show and even amongst all the winners [of 'The Apprentice'] I have the most successful business and Lord Sugar didn't give me a chance to showcase my skills."
