Last year, Lily claimed that being bullied for her red hair was akin to suffering racist abuse.
The model, admitted she suffered years of ‘damaging’ insults for her fiery tresses at school before signing to an agency.
Lily – who was signed by Storm model agency in 2003 – insisted the abuse she suffered is not dissimilar to racism as it’s something she cannot change about herself.
Speaking on poet laureate Simon Armitage’s BBC podcast, Lily spoke about the bullying she suffered for her red hair at a young age.
She said: ‘What are the reason that kids are bullied? It’s because they’re different,’ she told poet laureate Simon Armitage on his BBC podcast.
‘On a surface level it was mostly because I had red hair. And at that time in England – and I still think it exists as a problem – being ginger was a common kind of slur.
‘I think it’s really problematic because it’s the kind of slur that’s largely overlooked by teachers because it’s not really politically incorrect.’
Lily then continued: ‘It’s not a racial slur but it’s also not dissimilar because it’s something a child can’t change about themselves, short of dyeing their hair.

‘My mum said it was jealousy but I didn’t really believe that. It can be really damaging.’
Despite her bullying ordeal, Lily was signed to modelling agency Storm in 2003, before landing her first Vogue cover at the age of 16.
She was named Model of the Year at the 2004 British Fashion Awards and has worked for leading fashion houses including Alexander McQueen, Moschino and Chanel.
Lily went onto say that becoming such a huge star in the fashion industry ‘felt like a beautiful karmic story’ and her family took great pleasure in watching her flourish.
The star also shares daughter Wylde, four, with her partner Kwame Ferreira, and is among a number of celebrities who have spoken out about being bullied for their red hair.
Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall also previously claimed that abuse towards those with ginger hair is also akin to racism.
He tweeted in 2011: ‘Let’s play a game: whenever you read ‘ginger’ try replacing it with ‘black’ or ‘Asian’ and see how it reads.’
Harry Potter star Rupert Grint also said it was ‘hard making friends’ as a ginger pupil in an all-boys school as he stood out like a ‘beacon’.
Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts faced constant ridicule from stars over her appearance, with Chris Moyles once calling her the ‘ropey-looking ginger one.’
Matt Willis also called her a ‘rude ginger b****’, which she painted on a skirt before performing on stage in it in 2003.
