The Apprentice’s Jackie Fast reveals surprising item candidates are BANNED from using

The Apprentice ‘s latest fired candidate Jackie Fast has expressed her disbelief in finding out that a certain item is banned.

The businesswoman, who was given the boot by Lord Alan Sugar alongside Tom Bunday on last night’s show, was flabbergasted when she realised she wasn’t allowed to use her smartphone during the tasks.

Teams are often seen communicating with each other via phone when they split in two to tackle all aspects of the week’s challenge.

But fans of the show will no doubt have noticed that candidates always have their conversations on speakerphone, holding the phone out in front of them.

Jackie, 34, has revealed that people taking part in the BBC show are given special phones that can only be used for calls.

She said they can’t Google anything and can’t even use a calculator to help out with tough sums.

She told the Express : "In all fairness I found it challenging not having a calculator.

"It’s such a stupid thing but you get really used to using your phone for loads of things including spellcheck. I mean they’re dumbing us down obviously.

"But with things of that nature, not having the calculator and internet and having it stripped down and having to rely on your actual knowledge is hard."

Jackie and Tom were sent home in the first double firing of the series after their team lost the week’s task.

Lord Sugar decided to get rid of Tom after he lost three tasks as Project Manager.
