‘Trout pouts and duck faces’: Lippy Apprentice candidates who could all be hired… for Love Island!
- Viewers of the Apprentice are obsessed with the ‘trout pouts’ and ‘duck lips’
- Many of this year’s Love Island entrants also admitted to their plumped up lips
- Even Lord Sugar, 75, has admitted to having had cosmetic procedures
It’s a look more associated with Love Island than the boardroom But more than half the female contestants on this year’s Apprentice appear to be boasting cosmetically enhanced lips.
Some viewers of the hit BBC1 show have become obsessed with the ‘trout pouts’ and ‘duck lips’ sported by those hoping to win a £250,000 business investment from Lord Sugar.
Hair salon owner Dani Donovan has prompted much discussion over whether she has received cosmetic help such as filler. Some fans wrote on social media that the 25-year-old, from Hertfordshire, needs to ‘deflate’ her lips.
Meanwhile, Rochelle Anthony, 35, another hair salon owner, from Bedfordshire, has likened herself to American reality star Kim Kardashian, who has inspired a generation of young women to seek the fuller-lipped look. Ms Anthony says: ‘I’m always being compared to the Kim Kardashian of the business world because I’m doing business with a hint of glam.’

Her Instagram account also features many raunchy selfies.

Shazia Hussain’s lips have also prompted discussion, though it is likely the recruitment expert’s lipstick is the reason behind her fuller pout. And Emma Browne, 26, who was the first to leave the show after other female contestants accused her of being disruptive, also has a fuller bottom lip.

Many of this year’s Love Island contestants, including Tanyel Revan and Anna-May Robey, have admitted to having plumped up their lips with filler. However, surgeons in the UK are reporting a rise in the number of women paying to have lip fillers dissolved.
Demand for artificially plumped lips rocketed after Ms Kardashian’s half-sister Kylie Jenner revealed she had undergone the procedure at 17. But the trend started in the 1990s with the likes of Meg Ryan, Melanie Griffith and Men Behaving Badly star Leslie Ash, who suffered an allergic reaction to a filler which left her with hugely swollen lips.
Even Lord Sugar, 75, has admitted to having had cosmetic procedures. He said: ‘Yes! I’ve had my eyes done. I’ve had cosmetic surgery. I did it for vanity – end of.’
