Tyra Banks has revealed that Rita Ora will replace her as the host of America's Next Top Model. The 23rd cycle of the reality TV series slash modelling competition will also welcome a new panel of judges, including model Ashley Graham, stylist Law Roach and Paper magazine CEO Drew Elliott.

"It's no longer just about having the highest cheekbones and best pout and the best hair," said Tyra who stays on as the show's executive producer. "My goal is to really get into these girls' heads that I'm not looking for some successful model and I'm not looking for some social-media star. I'm looking for both. I'm looking for a hybrid, because that's where the world is."

Crack your knuckles and break out the popcorn, ladies. We wonder if Rita will also get to say "Wanna be on top?" in the opening credits.
