Britain’s Next Top Model Is Back: Meet The 15 Contestants

We’re way too excited about this - Britain’s Next Top Model is coming back in a big way next year and now we can meet all the contestants (and pick our faves).

The show has been snapped up by Lifetime, after previously being axed by Sky Living, and will kick off with a brand new series in January with former contestant Abbey Clancy returning as head judge.

Joining her will be male model Paul Sculfor, fashion maven Hilary Alexander and photographer Nicky Johnston.

Lifetime has unveiled the 15 girls hoping to be crowned Britain’s Next Top Model and, as you’d expect, it’s an eclectic bunch from a devout Christian to a young woman hoping to be the first openly gay model on BNTM.

Judge Abbey said: “A lot goes intomodelling. You need to be healthy and strong and prepared to work hard. This series has real girls, real dramas, real judges – it’s perfect for Lifetime.”

Now let’s meet the girls!
