Katie Hopkins has already linked children's names to social class, but now she has started linking them with learning disorders.

She said on Twitter: "Hannah - the perfect name for a dyslexic kid"

It's not the first time Katie has attacked children based on their names; on This Morning last year, the former Apprentice contestant left viewers - and Holly Willoughby - furious when she revealed she wouldn't let her children play with classmates named Charmaine, Kylie or Tyler.

"We don't achieve best friend status with Chardonnay."

She said: "For me, a name is a shortcut of finding out what class that child comes from and makes me ask, 'Do I want my children to play with them?'"

"That's terrible. Listen to what you're saying. You judge children… on their names," Holly said.

As Katie launched into another rant, Holly stopped her in her tracks, saying: "Oh stop, stop right there."

Katie also upset Twitter followers when she attacked the new range of Lego figures, which were created by the company to inspire young girls into doing amazing things.

The three new characters - a palaeontologist, an astronomer, a chemist - are all female, intended to help stop sexist child marketing.

Katie said: "Lego unveils new range of girls doing difficult things. The 'Research Institute' has 3 scientists - all girls. But dang, are they ooooogly."

"Lego scientists. After we have invested thousands training them they will sod off on maternity & come back part time."

"Just asked daughter what she thought of new Lego scientists. 'Don't look very fun to build.' What happens when feminists interfere with fun."

"Lego has just confirmed the scientists don't shave either. There are hairy blocks. For legs and arms pits. Caitlin Moronic will be pleased."

The new range of scientists was released online last week and has sold out, with another batch to be made available later this month.

David Robertson, a former Lego professor of innovation at Switzerland's Institute for Management Development, said: "If you believe Lego is a healthy toy for kids to play with, why not make different stories that appeal to different people?"
