Television presenter Dr Christian Jessen has criticised Lord Sugar for picking Dr Leah Totton to be his new business partner and winner of the latest series of The Apprentice.

Totton was announced at the winner on Wednesday night with Sugar investing £250,000 in her business to launch a chain of clinics to provide high-street facial medical cosmetic procedures.

The presenter of Embarrassing Bodies took to Twitter to say "Alan Sugar has certainly not done patient safety and medical aesthetics any favours by promoting very junior doc 2 run Botox/filler clinics!"

He added "The apprentice winner in question may well be entirely competent but I do sorry about the image projected on the show of these procedures."

"As the medical director who will be her senior to guide her when things go wrong?!

"I wonder if you know that there was a recent case of a patient rendered completely blind in one eye after having facial fillers...? "

Totton has said her focus with the clinics is on clinical excellence.
