Apprentice winner Leah Totton has defended the ethics of her new cosmetic procedures business.

Leah Totton defends her business plan to Digital Spy:

Totton has won a £250,000 investment from Lord Sugar and her new company will be called 'Dr Leah'.

Speaking about the controversy surrounding her business plan and criticism that she shouldn't be promoting cosmetics, Totton insisted that she would never encourage young women to embark on unnecessary procedures.

"The real reason I came into the process is because the non-surgical cosmetic sector does not have regulation at the minute," said Totton.

"I'm advocating that it does need that regulation. I want to bring about that change.

"I do not encourage, especially women my age, to embark on these procedures. I want to ensure that they're given in a safe and secure environment."

Totton beat Luisa Zissman in last night's (July 17) Apprentice final.
