The Apprentice 2019 bombshell Lottie Lion strips down to bikini in bottom-baring pics

The Apprentice 2019 contestants include a bakery owner, a chartered engineer and the owner of an ice cream company. Also joining the line-up is stunning librarian Lottie Lion, 19. Unearthed bikini pics prove Lottie is far from shy about flaunting her incredible figure on social media as she shared glimpses at a sun-soaked getaway on Instagram earlier this summer. In the pictures, she could be seen sporting a mane of blonde locks as she posed by the ocean in a green two-piece.

One snap saw The Apprentice hopeful standing on a rock by the water, arching her back to emphasise her pert posterior and tilting her head back.

Her slender curves were impossible to miss as she posed strategically to accentuate her hourglass figure.

Wearing her hair in a half-up ‘do, she oozed glamour whilst topping up her tan on holiday.

In a second shot, Lottie sat on the rock, tilting her hips to the side to give her 5,200 followers a peek at her bottom in the thong-style bikini.

Flaunting her trim waist and toned pins, she shot the camera a sultry glance, balancing a pair of sunglasses on top of her head.

Lord Sugar’s new potential business partner opted for a natural makeup look, adding lashings of mascara and nude pink lipstick.

Elsewhere, the librarian from Somerset has been preparing to tackle the challenges on The Apprentice, where she will bid to win the £250,000 investment and secure Lord Sugar, 72, as her business partner.

Lottie insists she not a push over and calls herself “very cut-throat”.

When asked what her greatest business qualities are, she noted her “powers of persuasion”.

“I bring ‘class’ to everything and ensure nothing I do is half-standard or tacky,” she said.

The Apprentice returns to screens next week for its 15th series.

When the line-up of contestants was revealed earlier today, it soon became clear its a contender for the sexiest one yet.

Among those competing is former model Jemelin Artigas, 34, whose Instagram is also littered with eye-popping bikini pics.

One saw Jemelin showing off her physique in a neon two-piece as she walked out of the shallows of a turquoise sea in view of her 6,600 followers.

In another, she strutted her stuff in an animal print number on a white sandy beach in Dubai.

Beaming, she stretched her arms out as she flashed her assets in the halter neck swimwear.

The Apprentice 2019 begins Wednesday October 2 at 9pm on BBC One.
