I'll Put You through Hell to Be like Elle; Next Top Model Judge's Warning to Wannabe Models


Byline: LINDSAY CLYDESDALE

THE battle of the beauties is back. Britain's Next Top Model, the country's fiercest catwalk competition, returned to our screens last night.

At the helm for the start of the sixth series was new host, and head judge, supermodel Elle ' the Body' Macpherson.

She'll be casting a critical eye over the contestants along with fellow judges designer Julien Macdonald, Stylist of the Year 2009 Grace Woodward and male model Charley Speed.

And tough-talking uberstylist Grace, 33, who has been a creative director for glossies such as Elle and Harper's Bazaar and collaborated with bands such as Florence And e Machine and Green Day, had a warning for the wannabes.

She said: "I'm very direct with the advice and feedback I give them, which I think they can sometimes feel is quite brutal - but I have a responsibility to them. It's tough love.

"I don't want to let them go out in the industry having not painted a real picture as to how fierce the real competition is."

Charley said of the new series: "Everything's bigger and better and more high-pro le."

The 30-year-old has been modelling since he was 17, appearing in campaigns for the likes of Calvin Klein, with Kate Moss, and strutting catwalks for Gucci, Versace and Prada.
