Elle Macpherson Reveals Britain’s Next Top Model 2010 final 25

An Elle Macpherson lookalike, a Sikh rebel, a plus size model, a London socialite, a single mother and a former Miss Plymouth make up the final 25 contestants in the running to become Britain’s Next Top Model, as the series makes its long awaited return to LIVING.

Hand picked by new host Elle Macpherson, the wannabe models bring both beauty and bickering in equal doses as they battle it out to impress a fresh faced judging panel which includes top designer Julien MacDonald.

Only 14 however will make it through to the Britain’s Next Top Model house to continue their bid towards sealing a lucrative contract with leading agency Models 1. The most fabulous and feisty series to date begins on LIVING on Monday 5th July from 9pm.
