Lottie Lion, who became famous after her time on The Apprentice, revealed how she was sexually assaulted by a man on a train while two of his friends filmed the attack.

The 22-year-old reality TV star was standing on a platform before traveling from Reading, Berkshire to Bristol Temple Meads station on March 24 at around 10 pm when the attack took place. She said she was talking to a friend on the phone when one of the men pulled down her top and took a photo of her chest. Lottie, who reached the final stages of the 'The Apprentice' show in 2019, recalled how she got on her train while trying to escape the men, but they followed her into her carriage before one of them  sexually assaulted her and the other two recorded it on a cell phone.

Lottie spoke about the harrowing incident on TikTok after sharing a video by British Transport Police explaining how they help women traveling alone. The reality TV star praised the authorities for helping her through her assault. "I was waiting on the platform for this train on the phone to my friend," Lottie said. "As I was on the phone with my friend, a group of men approached me. One of them pulled my top down and took a photo." She continued, "They ran off and I was in such shock as my train literally pulled up then and there. I didn't want to be on the platform anymore so I just got straight onto the train. I went and sat in a busy carriage because that's what you are always told to do, go and be near people. And I just sat there trying not to panic for about 10 minutes."



 

However, things took a turn for the worse. "When I looked up and saw the carriage doors open these three men were walking into my carriage while looking directly at me. And it didn't look like they had good intentions," she continued. "Despite the fact that the carriage was quite busy, one of these men ended up sexually assaulting me while the other two filmed it. I don't know if it was fueled because they recognized me from being in the public eye but it was pretty horrendous." She added, "There was quite a bit of commotion on the train and so a conductor came immediately. A passerby explained the situation and I was immediately taken to the first-class carriage. I was given space completely to myself."



 

 

The TV personality lauded British Transport Police for their help and support following the March 24 attack and urged other women to reach out to them if they are assaulted while traveling. "I was told by the conductor to text 61016 which I did, which is the British Transport Police's number," she said. "I was immediately given a phone call and these people stated on the phone to me for the remainder of my journey. At the very next station, the police were waiting and they came on board and arrested all three of the men. At my station, the police came and picked me up, took me to Victim Support, offered me loads of comfort. And drove me all the way back to my flat so I didn't have to be alone at any point." She added, "They dealt with my situation so well and made me feel so safe."
