Kelly Osbourne ‘set for fashion programme’

Kelly Osbourne is set for a starring role as a judge on Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model.

The famously outspoken star is reportedly joining the hit series’ panel as part of a show “shake-up” that is also set to see current style critic Grace Woodward depart.

Model-and-fellow judge Charley Speed may also leave the series.

“Charley and Grace have been on it for two years and producers are looking at how to change the line-up. The plan is for Kelly Osbourne to come on board and shake things up. She is a massive fan of fashion and has good pedigree working on fashion shows,” a source told British newspaper The Sun.

“Crucially, she is also young and the whole point of the show is to find the next big thing.”

Elle Macpherson and Julien Macdonald are the Sky Living programme’s two other judges and are expected to remain, according to the publication.

Kelly Osbourne is no stranger to the fashion industry. The 27-year-old star has previously hosted Sky TV’s Project Catwalk. She is also a regular Fashion correspondent for the E! Entertainment Channel and stars on the network’s Fashion Police show alongside Joan Rivers.

Kelly is the face of Madonna’s Material Girl line, and in 2006 represented high street chain Accessorize.

In June this year Kelly Osbourne also presented the Miss USA pageant.
