The Apprentice 's Lottie Lion blasts BBC and says she's not racist amid anxiety battle
Lottie has spoken out to defend herself against damning claims she is a racist, transphobic and homophobic amid her own mental health battle
Lottie has caused a stir this series with her appearance for her controversial moves such as when she fired Carina Lepore from her role as sub team leader during a task.
Lottie slammed the BBC aftercare as she insisted there was nothing the broadcaster could do after ruining her reputation.
Drama escalated off-screen as Lottie told rival candidate Lubna Farhan, who has Pakistani heritage, to "shut up, Gandhi" in a Whatsapp group.
She explained she was responding to a Mahatma Gandhi quote about her and the comment was nothing to do with her race.
She added: “I have struggled for quite a long time. When it came out and Lubna decided to villainise me it had such a huge impact on me. I was prescribed anti-anxiety and antidepressant medication, which I have been on in the past.”
The librarian, who will propose a ladies' club for her business plan, cleared up the upset over claims she was transphobic.
The BBC told The Mirror in response: "The wellbeing of the candidates that take part in The Apprentice is of paramount importance, and we have a thorough and robust duty of care protocol in place which includes an experienced network of support for Candidates before, during and after filming - including making support available at a location convenient to them.Read more: Mirror Celeb
