Craving a new super glossy TV show? Well it's your lucky day, as today it has been announced that the modelling reality show The Face is coming to the UK with super Naomi Campbell (who also starred as a judge on the US version) as Executive Producer and mentor. On the new Sky Living show three supers will compete against each other to find 'the face.' So who is going to battle against Naomi to find the ultimate super?
Erin O'Connor and Caroline Winberg have been confirmed as the other two mentors, and the trio were spotted out in London on Friday filming. Naomi said about bringing the show to the UK 'As an English model I'm thrilled to be filming The Face in England where my career began. I'm looking forward to Erin and Caroline joining me on the journey to find the next great face in the modelling world.'
Naomi said of her fellow mentors: 'I have worked with both internationally and they truly understand what's necessary to make it in the modelling industry. It's going to be a really inspiring journey and as executive producer on the show I truly believe we will find the face.'
Each judge has a rather sparkling model CV as Caroline has had major ad campaigns with the likes of Valentino, Tomy Hilfiger and Versace, has stomped down the catwalk for everyone from McQueen to Chanel, plus she had six seasons walking as a Victoria's Secret angel. Next up, Erin O'Connor was first shot by Juergen Teller in 1996 and has had campaigns with Versace, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and more. Oh and she also starred in an episode of Ab Fab.
Then we have Ms Naomi Campbell who hardly needs an introduction. She was one of the five original 'supermodels' and made her big break at just 15 years old. She was the first black model on the cover of French Vogue, has had more campaigns than we can count and has had more than 500 magazine covers. Gulp.
Supermodel Erin O'Connor commented about her new gig: 'I’m thrilled to be joining the line-up of The Face – Naomi is a huge inspiration so to be working with her on this project is an enormous privilege. Caroline is one of the modeling world’s most exciting new talents so to have her expertise on board is also a huge bonus – I can’t wait to get started.'
As you would expect from a modelling reality show, the girls will take part in challenges over the eight weeks of filming which will include photo shoots, catwalk shows and commercials. The winner will then represent a major brand in print, on-air and in person at national events.
