Michelle Mone Lobbied For PPE Medpro. But Was She Enriched By Its Profits? – Podcast

Michelle Mone is not your average member of the House of Lords. After leaving school at 15, she transformed herself into an entrepreneur through her bra brand Ultimo. Her glamorous lifestyle, beautiful home and yacht called Lady M fed her social media accounts and saw her profiled in glossy magazines.

Today she is in the headlines for a different reason: a company called PPE Medpro. The firm was awarded contracts worth more than £200m during the height of the pandemic, yet some of the protective clothing it supplied for frontline workers was never used. David Conn, the Guardian’s investigations correspondent, tells Nosheen Iqbal what he has discovered about Mone’s links to the firm.
