Former The Apprentice star Lottie Lion took to Instagram to share her frustration

Lottie Lion became a rather divisive figure during her stint on The Apprentice back in 2019.

Lion was just 19 when she starred in the BBC series and would regularly clash with her fellow candidates in the hopes of bagging Lord Alan Sugar's investment.

Now 23, Lion has built up quite the fanbase on social media with her 89.7k followers playing witness to her latest outburst.

The reality TV star shared a series of snaps airing her frustration at the fact a child had been allowed to fly business class alongside her.

Alongside a selfie of herself holding her head in exasperation, Lion penned: "Not to sound pretentious or anything (but we all know I am).

"Why the f*** are children allowed in business class?" Lion added.

She continued: "There's a bratty 6 year old sat NEXT TO ME with the parents in the row in front." (sic)

After arriving in France, Lion doubled down on her opinions when one fan hit out at her outburst.

Lion had asked her followers to ask her a question on her Instagram stories, which prompted one follower to ask: "What are parents flying business class supposed to do with their kids?"

The Apprentice star rather flippantly replied: "I don't know, put them in the luggage hold or something I guess."

Lion has made her Instagram account private amid the backlash she's facing for her remarks.

She followed up her divisive comments with a snap from her hotel room after she made it there safely after the flight.

Lion's time on The Apprentice ended in controversial fashion after she was accused of using "racist language" when referencing a fellow contestant in WhatsApp conversations.

The BBC rebuked the star for her "inappropriate" messages and she was banned from appearing the series' spin-off shows.

Formal complaints were lodged against Lion by her co-stars.

Lion claimed the show had heavily impacted her mental health and that she had fallen victim to relentless trolling following her The Apprentice departure.

The police even had to investigate death threats made towards her in the aftermath of her time on the show.
