Move over Tyra Banks, there's a new judge in town and she's fronting a show... exactly like yours.

British supermodel, Naomi Campbell is to make her television debut in a new modelling show called The Face , which is set to rival fellow modelling programme America's Next Top Model .

One of three supermodel judges, the rest of which are yet to be announced, Campbell will be helping to find a winner of a series of challenges which, according to Fashionista , will include photo shoots, catwalk shows and faux adverts for well-known American fashion brands. The winner of said challenges will then become a brand ambassador and the face of a 'major national brand' which has yet to be named.

Any of this sound familiar? That might be because The Face is being aired by the same network as ANTM , which is currently in its eighteenth series.

" The Face is a fresh new series that delivers all the elements our audience craves: fashion, beauty and drama" promises the network's vice-president Rod Aissa.

Throughout her 26-year career 41-year-old Campbell has notched up numerous campaigns for some (or all) of the biggest names in the industry and should be the perfect mentor for the show's young contestants. However, there might be more 'drama' than Aissa had bargained for if she can't keep her famous temper under control. One thing's for sure, that would make good viewing.
