The Apprentice's Karren Brady has been branded "unpleasant", "tacky" and "rude" after she responded to a candidate on the BBC One business show.
In a clip posted from the show on Twitter on Friday (March 17), Karren could be seen sitting down with Megan Hornby to have a look through her business plan.
Sitting down with the hopeful, Karren flicked through some papers as Megan stood up and thanked her.

Speaking to Karren, Megan said: "Thank you Karren," which led to her getting scolded by the Baroness.
Replying to Megan, Karren snapped: "It's Baroness Brady to you," referring to her title as a Conservative life peer in the House of Lords.
Megan quickly corrected herself and said: "Baroness, Baroness Brady," before turning to walk away.
Karren then chimed in with: "My friends call me Karren," before the clip abruptly ended.
Fans were up in arms after the clip was posted on the show's Twitter account on Friday, with many rushing to the comments to criticise the Baroness.
Quote retweeting the tweet, one person noted: "But..they've called her Karen the whole series and never once called her or had to call her Baroness Brady. I don't remember being made to call her that from any series to be honest. Bit unnecessarily mean."
"You’re being tacky and rude," penned another.
A third said: "There was no need for that. Unpleasant woman and a Tory. Speaks volumes."
"Utterly rude and totally unnecessary," added a fourth.
A fifth then went on to say: "What a disgrace that the interviews are run to embarrass the candidates for cheap television fun. Very poor Alan Sugar and interviewers."
While a sixth said: "This was hard to watch last night. Those poor candidates. Lord Sugar has introduced and referred to his two advisors as Tim and Karren throughout the whole process – in every task and in every boardroom – so why humiliate them now? Uncomfortable viewing."
The Apprentice final will take place on Thursday, March 23 2023.
