Michelle Mone hits back at Katie Hopkins’ ‘asylum seeker’ slam

Michelle Mone is not impressed by Hopkins’ TV appearances
Ultimo founder Michelle Mone and shouty mouthpiece Katie Hopkins love a good barney. The pair have been in bust-ups (pun intended) for the past seven years, since Hopkins’ appearance on The Apprentice in 2007.

Mone’s stance on Scottish independence spur­red Hopkins to sling another fist full of mud last month, calling the underwear entrepreneur an “asylum seeker” and “Trident with tits.”

Well, Mone has hit back – telling City A.M. she doesn’t take the former Apprentice star seriously anyhow. “I mean who the hell is she?” she told us. “A former Apprentice star who writes a column. She isn’t a businesswoman, she does­n’t own a company. She just spits anger and abuse.”

We’ll probably be ringing the bell on round three (hundred) in the next couple of days.
