Tyra Banks has news for you to smize about this morning – the supermodel is reprising her role as the host of America's Next Top Model.

Tyra hosted the reality television series for a whopping 22 seasons but for Cycle 23 of the show, she took on a more behind-the-scenes role as executive producer. Singer Rita Ora was then appointed as the new host with Tyra making cameos in the premiere and finale episodes of the latest season. However, the supermodel wants back in and she took to Instagram to announce her return to the show.

Tyra also took to Twitter to graciously thank Rita for a job well done this season. Evidently, there's no beef between the two as Rita replied with an "I love you!!!". It seems that Rita might be using her time off from the small screen to focus on her music.

Tyra's clearly on top in the TV world as the supermodel has also recently taken up the job of America's Got Talent's host, replacing Nick Cannon.
