Rita Ora the new host of America’s Next Top Model(?)
She’s been dominating entertainment headlines recently, what with that £200k burglary on her home, and being hospitalised for exhaustion soon after. But now Rita Ora might be on our gossip radars for more positive news, as it’s rumoured the singer and former X Factor judge may be set to takeover from supermodel Tyra Banks as the presenter of America’s Next Top Model.
While Ora cited wanting to focus on her music career as her reason for quitting The X Factor, The Sun has reported that she is over the moon to be taking on the high profile presenting job on the revamped new series of the American show, which was cancelled by US network The CW last October after an astounding 22 seasons and 12 years on air.
VH1 has since picked up America’s Next Top Model for 14 new episodes, with VH1 general manager Chris McCarthy saying in February: “We’re thrilled to bring America’s Next Top Model back to VH1 and partner with CBS Television Distribution and Tyra Banks to reinvent this franchise for a whole new generation. This is a homecoming for the series, as VH1 helped catapult the show to cultural icon status as the first cable network to air the show after it launched.”
