Dannii Minogue joins Next Top Model

Former X Factor judge will join Elle Macpherson and Tyson Beckford in the ninth series of Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model on Sky Living.

Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model will soon be back for a ninth series on Sky.

New judge Dannii Minogue joins model and actor Tyson Beckford, as well as her fellow Australian, and the show's host, supermodel Elle Macpherson, when the weekly show returns to Sky Living on Thursday 13 June, 2013.

This year saw a record number of auditions held across the UK, as the judging panel stopped off at 17 cities from Plymouth to Glasgow. Thousands of entrants were whittled down to the 14 girls who have made it into the infamous Next Top Model house.

"Working with Tyson and Elle has been an absolute pleasure, and the level of talent among the girls is astounding. Each girl brings something special to this competition, and I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to mentor them through this series," said Minogue.

The former X Factor judge will also be joined by Team GB Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, as well as top British models Jade Parfitt and Jourdan Dunn, who will help put the girls through their paces.

Macpherson, who is also Next Top Model's executive producer, said: "I've really enjoyed working with Dannii. She's a powerhouse in fashion and television and this series has benefitted from having her perspective on the panel.

Sky Living is available as part of the Sky Entertainment pack, which adds over 35 channels including Sky Atlantic, Sky 1, Sky Arts, Syfy, Alibi, Dave and The Universal Channel.
