The 29-year-old digital product consultant has become the fifth contestant to get the boot from the reality TV show and miss out of Lord Sugar's £250,000 investment after he failed to stand out when his team was tasked with acquiring items to mark some of the milestones of the businessman's life and career in celebration of his 70th birthday.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Ross said: "I actually feel quite humiliated because I left so early in the competition. Obviously I would've liked to have got to final five but it hasn't affected my business and I'm still going to release my app next year."

Ross has come up with an app called Kibble, which will give users insight into how to train their dogs after he managed to discipline his golden retriever by 16 weeks old.

He explained: "I just thought I would put a programme that works for me because I have a full-time job and I want to make sure my dog is happy and healthy. I was getting people stop me in the street telling me my dog was so well behaved."

Although Ross thoroughly enjoyed his time on the show, he has admitted that he battled with anxiety while in the house because he doesn't like big crowds and loud noise.

He said: "It was the hardest part of the process for sure, I don't like crowds of people and I don't like loads of noise, it sounded weird but I don't like being touched.

"I was actually fine in the boardroom because it's a different dynamic because it was more like work mode. The difficulty was in the house really because you're stuck with 20 people - who I got on with really well - but the type of conversations they were having weren't the types of conversations that interest me."

'The Apprentice' will return to screens next Wednesday (08.11.17) at 9pm.
