She first appeared on British television as a contestant on the third UK series of The Apprentice in 2007.

But Hopkins is always a busy lady and that list of offense is just the tip of the iceberg.
So why is she trending on Twitter Thursday?
Her contract with The Sun ends this week and she will post her final column for that 'newspaper' on Friday. Reports claim she resigned from the Sun Thursday; sadly though she will be back writing but this time for the Mail Online.
Did she jump ship or was she pushed? Do we really care?
Either could be true. After posting a terrible piece referring to migrants as cockroaches she refused to apologise for her harsh words even after the death of young Aylan Kurdi.
According to the Independent "Hopkins said she was “delighted” to be joining the site as she announced the news in a statement on Thursday, a few weeks after she faced a growing backlash over a dehumanising comment piece about refugees."
She is likely to be in good company at the Mail Online a publication that is not renowned for its accuracy and one that loves to post sleazy news as available.
"Confirming her appointment, a representative for the MailOnline said: “At MailOnline we operate without fear or favour and this is something that Katie is known the world over for. “Katie’s column is a must read for people across Britain and around the globe. Even if you don’t agree with what she says, she certainly knows how to engage and entertain an audience.”
For sensible people it is a must not read pure and simple.
Hopkins looks for sensationalism and usually manages this by attack. She makes money at the expense of others be they refugees, fat people or feminists.
The Guardian view is that moving to the Mail Online will give Hopkins a global audience and further her 'career'.
From the Mail Online April 2015-Katie Hopkins branded 'toxic' following call to 'burn all the boats' in North Africa just hours after 900 migrants drowned on the treacherous journey to Europe.
