Baroness Brady is refusing to quit as chairman of shamed Sir Philip Green’s business empire despite condemning other rich men accused of similar wrongdoing.
The defiant star of TV’s The Apprentice declared: “Why should I?”
It came as MPs called on police to investigate claims Green had subjected former employees to racist language and sexual harassment.
Independent MP Frank Field said Prime Minister Theresa May should refer Green to a Commons committee with the power to strip him of his knighthood.
Lady Brady is chairman of Taveta Investments, the Green family firm that controls Arcadia and its chains Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge, Burton and Dorothy Perkins.
Lady Brady has in the past used a newspaper column to criticise powerful men accused of sexual misconduct.
Green, whose reputation nosedived after the collapse of BHS in 2016, has denied the allegations.
Labour MP Jess Phillips said: “Nothing will change if we vilify others and protect our mates.”
Lady Brady told Sky News: “I’ve always been an outspoken defender of women’s rights.”
