Tv Doctor Dr Christian Jessen has blasted 'The Apprentice' and Lord Sugar's 'unsafe' decision to choose junior doctor Leah Totton as his business partner.
The 'Embarrassing Bodies' TV doctor, has questioned the safety of Lord Sugar's new business venture which will see the junior doctor, Leah, in charge of a cosmetic procedures clinic chain.
He tweeted this week: "Alan Sugar has certainly not done patient safety and medical aesthetics any favours by promoting very junior doc 2 run Botox/filler clinics!" (sic)
Leah Totton was considered the least experienced in business due to her work as a doctor.
The 24-year-old made a convincing pitch to Lord Sugar on the profitability of her cosmetic clinics specializing in botox injections. However Dr. Christian, whose real name is Christian Jessen, lacks confidence in her experience.

He continued: "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?!"(sic)
Leah glorified her business for its quick fix cosmetic procedures that are increasingly becoming popular among women in the UK. While Leah credits her experience in the medical industry as the reason for being a suitable business partner, Dr Christian is seemingly unconvinced as he also brought up the issue of how safe the treatments actually were.
"I wonder if you know that there was a recent case of a patient rendered completely blind in one eye after having facial fillers...?" he argued on twitter.
Leah, who is launching skin clinic Dr Leah with new business partner Lord Sugar and the £250,000 prize money, insisted throughout The Apprentice that she was offering a safe option for those who wanted facial fillers or skin peels.
She said: "The reason I went into this process is because there's been a lot of press coverage this year about these procedures being done inappropriately in non-clinical environments by people who are not medical health professionals and that is the reason why I've done the show."
