The Apprentice’s Lottie Lion reveals she’s had a nose job

The Apprentice’s Lottie Lion has revealed she’s had a nose job.

The TV star, 21, said she decided to get the procedure after being bullied at school and later in life being trolled online for her appearance after her stint on national TV.

The former business analyst admitted she is ashamed she has ‘given in to the trolls’ and said she doesn’t want to influence young girls to get it done.

Lottie said she has felt insecure about her appearance ever since breaking her nose during a judo event at school. 

She told The Sun‘I had some serious self-confidence issues about my side profile and appearance in general.

‘I was bullied at school because of my nose, but between the ages of 17 to 19 was able to regain confidence, coming to terms with my unconventional looks.’

She then appeared on the 2019 series of The Apprentice where she caused controversy for using ‘inappropriate’ racist language towards her rival Lubna Farhan.

This lead to her being abused by trolls online but she says she is happier now she has had the plastic surgery.   

She told the publication: ‘I get messages and comments on a daily basis about my looks and what I should get changed.

‘I believe that if you are truly unhappy about something you should change it. I did this for myself, no one else.’

She added that she is still an advocate for body positivity and ‘loving yourself’. 

It comes after in February Lottie claimed her life was ruined by the BBC show and left her resorting to meeting men on a sugar daddy dating website.

Following her much-publicised stint on the programme, which she admitted wreaked havoc with her mental health, she was driven to attempting to maintain her lifestyle by seeking older men who were ‘set for life’. 

The ‘villain’ of the 2019 series confessed that she joined Seeking Arrangement after splitting from an older man who had treated her to lavish holidays and ‘paid for everything’ as she wanted to maintain her lifestyle.

However, she ultimately left the site and had to contact the police after receiving ‘threats and harassment.’ 

Lottie told The Sun on Saturday that the coronavirus pandemic has taken a toll on her finances. 

As a result, she joined the sugar daddy website in the hopes of funding her luxury lifestyle, and getting a ‘bag or holiday’. 

She explained that the idea of joining the website came to her after splitting from a partner in his mid-30s who had discussed using sugar babies in the past.

The TV personality revealed that he’d often whisked her away on trips while covering all the costs, saying their relationship was ‘sort of like’ a sugar daddy/baby dynamic.

Lottie also admitted that even at the age of 18, she has never dated someone under the age of 26, as she left home at an early age and had to grow up fast. 

The controversial contestant said she is now drawn to ‘mature men’ who have life experience and success to their name . 

However her decision to seek out older, established men backfired as she said to the publication: ‘Since The Apprentice I was wary in case someone recognised me, and that is what has happened.   

‘I was approached by a man who seemed charming, very chatty and interested in getting to know me.

‘After that, it’s so hard to talk about, suffice to say I won’t be on there any more. I’ve had threats, harassment and had to speak to police.’

Lottie revealed she has struggled to stay afloat during the pandemic after constantly applying for jobs and being forced to rely on income from influencer work and savings.   

Lottie believes the downwards spiral of events was influenced by her appearance on the BBC One show, as she claimed producers contacted her to check her welfare, but it was too little to late. 

The former librarian admitted her mental health has been suffering since appearing on the business competition, and resulted in her feeling like she couldn’t ‘carry on’ anymore and taking breaks from social media to ‘detox’.

She declared that the hit BBC programme should increase the minimum age of participants to 21, following the backlash she faced. 

Lottie also claimed that she was made to take on a persona for her stint on the show, saying she asked to be called Charlotte but producers wanted her to be Lottie.

The TV personality alleged that TV execs preferred the sounds of ‘Lottie Lion the Librarian’ and she was so keen to take part that she went along with the idea. 

MailOnline have reached out to BBC for a comment. While an Apprentice spokesperson told The Sun that candidates’ wellbeing ‘is of paramount importance.’ 

Lottie was caught up in reports of behind-the-scenes race rows and homophobia during her time on The Apprentice.

She is said to have referred to another contestant – Lubna Farhan – as ‘Gandhi’, telling her to ‘shut up’, adding ‘I’ll f**k you up’ and threatening her with an ‘upper cut to the jaw’.

Lottie was also accused of making homophobic remarks about gay candidate Riyonn Farsad. 

She was consequently banned from The Apprentice sister shows You’re Fired and You’re Hired.
