The Apprentice’s Lottie Lion has revealed that she has had a nose job.
The TV star, 21, said she decided to go through the procedure after being bullied at school and later in life trolled online for her appearance after her appearance on national TV.
The former business analyst admitted she’s ashamed that she “gave in to the trolls” and said she doesn’t want to influence young girls to get it done.

Lottie said she felt insecure about her appearance since she broke her nose at a judo event at school.
She said The sun: “I had some serious confidence issues regarding my side profile and appearance in general.
“I was bullied at school because of my nose, but between the ages of 17 and 19 I was able to regain my confidence by accepting my unconventional appearance.”

She went on to appear in The Apprentice’s 2019 series, where she caused controversy for using “inappropriate” racist language against her rival Lubna Farhan.
This led to her being abused by trolls online, but she says she’s happier now that she’s had the plastic surgery.
She told the publication: “I get daily messages and comments about my appearance and what I should change.
‘I believe that if you are really dissatisfied with something, you should change it. I did this for myself, for no one else.’

She added that she is still an advocate of body positivity and “loving yourself.”
It will come after in February Lottie claimed her life had been ruined by the BBC show and had her resort to meeting men on a sugar daddy dating website.
After her highly publicized participation in the program, which she admitted damaged her mental health, she was driven to try and maintain her lifestyle by seeking out older men who were “ready for life.”
The 2019 series “villain” confessed to joining Seeking Arrangement after being separated from an elderly man who had treated her to luxury vacations and “paid for everything” because she wanted to preserve her lifestyle.

She eventually left the site and had to contact the police after receiving “threats and intimidation.”
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 hopes of funding her luxurious lifestyle and getting a “bag of vacation.”
She explained that the idea of joining the website came to her after she broke up with a partner in her mid-30s who had talked about using sugar babies in the past.
The TV personality revealed that he often took her on trips while covering all expenses, saying their relationship was “sort of a sugar daddy/baby dynamic.”

Lottie also admitted that even at age 18 she has never dated anyone under 26 as she moved out of the house at a young age and had to grow up fast.
The controversial contestant said she is now attracted to “mature men” who have life experience and success to their credit.
However, her decision to seek out older, established men backfired when she told the publication: “Since The Apprentice, I’ve been on my guard in case anyone recognizes me, and that’s what happened.
‘I was approached by a man who seemed charming, very talkative and interested in getting to know me.
“After that it’s so hard to talk about it, suffice it to say I won’t be here anymore. I’ve had threats and intimidation and had to talk to the police.”

Lottie revealed that she has struggled to survive during the pandemic after constantly applying for jobs and has been dependent on income from influencer work and savings.
Lottie believes the downward spiral of events was influenced by her appearance on the BBC One show, as she claimed producers had contacted her to check on her well-being, but it was too little too late.
The former librarian admitted her mental health has suffered since she appeared on the business contest, and that she felt like she couldn’t “go on” and took breaks from social media to “detox.”
She stated that the popular BBC program should raise the minimum age of participants to 21, following the backlash she faced.
Lottie also claimed she was created to take on a persona for her stint on the show, saying she asked to be called Charlotte, but the producers wanted her to be Lottie.
The TV personality claimed that TV executives preferred the sounds of “Lottie Lion the Librarian” and she was so eager to get involved that she agreed to the idea.
MailOnline has contacted BBC for a response. While an Apprentice spokesperson told The Sun that the well-being of the candidates is “of paramount importance”.
Lottie was caught up in reports of behind-the-scenes racing and homophobia during her time at The Apprentice.
She allegedly referred to another contestant – Lubna Farhan – as ‘Gandhi’, telling her to ‘shut up’, added ‘I’ll f**k you up’ and threatened her with an ‘upper cut’ to the jaw’ .
Lottie was also accused of making homophobic comments about gay candidate Riyonn Farsad.
She was consequently banned from The Apprentice’s sister shows, You’re Fired and You’re Hired.
