AUSSIE showbiz legend Patti Newton is the latest celeb to hit the cutting room floor on Celebrity Apprentice.
After bearing (nearly) all in a nude PR stunt in tonight's publicity challenge, Newton made a graceful exit from the boardroom.
Team Fortune wore brightly coloured body paint and a few bits of fabric to cover their sensitive areas.
"I'm thinking 'hello, do they realise they've got an old girl on the team?' I ain't getting naked," Newton said in the team's brainstorming session.
While Newton was initially the most hesitant, when it came to the day Lauryn Eagle was the one who ended up having cold feet.
While the skimpy stunt generated plenty of media attention, it failed to effectively promote Yellow Brick Road's brand and Team Fortune lost the challenge.
As the competition heated up, Newton's fellow celebrities and the show's host Mark Bouris questioned her toughness.
"I think she's too dignified, if I can be so bold, to win this tournament," team leader Vince Sorrenti said.
"I think her dignity prevents her from asking the right questions and doing the tough things that are required to win."
Newton put her hand up to go home last week and again told Mr Bouris she should be the one to go when she found herself back in the boardroom tonight.
"To be honest Mr Bouris, I think you have to fire me," she said.
"I've loved being in this competition but I actually think you might have got all you can get out of me. I don't think I'm a good leader."
The mother of two said she was proud of the time she spent on the show.
"We've raised so much money for charity I just think it's incredible," she said.
"I think it's one of the best things I've done. It's good to challenge yourself and I've been challenged."
Newton's elimination leaves just two women, Charlotte Dawson and Eagle, in the competition against Sorrenti, Ben Dark, Ian "Dicko" Dickson, Nathan Jolliffe and Jason Akermanis.
The remaining contestants will compete in a P&O Cruise entertainment and customer service challenge tomorrow night.
Celebrity Apprentice airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8.30pm (8pm in Brisbane) on Nine.
