Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model (formerly Britain's Next Top Model,) often abbreviated as BNTM, BINTM, or Top Model, is a British reality television show in which a number of women compete for the title of Britain's Next Top Model and a chance to start their career in the modelling industry. The first "cycle" premiered on 14 September 2005 on Sky Living.

As part of the Top Model franchise, it is based on the American television series America's Next Top Model. From series 7 onwards, the show has been renamed Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model as it has begun to include contestants from Ireland.

Contents

Premise

The series features a group of young female contestants who live together in a house for several weeks while taking part in challenges, photo shoots and meetings with members of the modelling industry. Normally, one poor-performing contestant is eliminated each week until the last contestant remaining is declared "Britain's Next Top Model" and receives a modelling contract along with other prizes.

In a recent BBC interview, Elle Macpherson contrasted the show with the US version, describing BNTM as "Uniquely British, the sense of humour and the styling is very British... more hybrid backgrounds... and I think that is really examplatory [sic] of what's going on in the UK today".[1]

Format

Each series of Britain's Next Top Model features from ten to fourteen episodes and begins with twelve to fourteen contestants. Each episode, one contestant is eliminated, though in rare cases a double elimination or no elimination is given by consensus of the judging panel. Season 6 saw a live final where the public chose the winner of the cycle.

Judges

The current judging panel consists of Elle Macpherson, Julien Macdonald, male model and former host of Make Me a Supermodel, Tyson Beckford, and clothing designer and former cast member of The Hills, Whitney Port. It was originally reported that for series 8 that Grace Woodward was leaving the judging panel to be replaced by Kelly Osbourne and that both Charley Speed and Julien MacDonald would continue on the judging panel. However it was later announced that both Speed and Woodward were leaving the panel to be replaced by Beckford and Port.[2] Previous judges have included Lisa Butcher, Marie Helvin, Paula Hamilton, Huggy Ragnarsson, industry expert Jonathan Phang and fashion expert Gerry DeVeaux. Usually, an additional guest judge will sit in on the panel every week.

Requirements

According to the show's official site, anyone with the right to live or work in Britain is free to apply for the show, but must meet the height requirement of 5'8", and be between the ages of 18-23 at the time they try out for the show.[3] This is true for seasons 6-8. During the first casting episode of Cycle 7, some producers stated that 'The requirements would be stricter' in order to accommodate models closer within the range of the real fashion world.

Exhibition

Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model Live was launched by Media 10 in October 2010 at ExCeL London.[4] The event was created to immerse members of the public into the Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model (BINTM) lifestyle. Bringing the TV series to life, the event gave every visitor the opportunity to experience the Top Model lifestyle for themselves. The show featured 45 minute catwalk shows, music performances from celebrities and an exhibition full of clothes and fashion accessories for the visitor to purchase. The 2011 Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model Live took place from 28-30 October at London ExCel.
