Tyra Banks, who created and hosted the show, said at the time that she was "proud" of how the show "brought the intimidating modelling world to the masses".

Well, it's now been announced that ANTM has been picked up by VH1 - but Tyra will not return.

She said in a statement: "After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn. I will continue as executive producer, but must turn my attention to new business endeavours, so I want to find a new host. I'm pumped to identify that person and bring back the show.

"Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!"

It's not yet known when the new series of ANTM will air on VH1.
