Elle toughens up for the new 'Top Model' series

Elle Macpherson (right) has toughened up for the new series of 'Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model', according to co-host Julien Macdonald.

The designer said the Australian model had to change to cope with the arrival of Whitney Port and Tyson Beckford from the United States.

"She had two new judges to compete with and the thing with these Americans is they're loud and they shouted; there was lots of times when we said, 'You Americans, shut up'," said Macdonald.
