Just In: Naomi Campbell gets her own Reality Show

Naomi Campbell may have settled her long-running feud with Tyra Banks years ago, but the two are set to go head to head again when Campbell becomes a mentor on her very own modelling reality show. The US programme - called The Face - will follow a similar format to Banks' wildly successful Next Top Model franchise, and will be operated by NBC Universal, which also produces The Voice.

Campbell will be responsible for "moulding, nurturing and transforming contestants" alongside two other supermodel mentors who are yet to be revealed. Campbell was linked with a mentoring role onBritain's Next Top Model in 2009, but the show was eventually helmed by Elle Macpherson.

The news comes just days after Banks revealed she had parted ways with her three fellow panellists on America's Next Top Model - Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J Alexander - reportedly in a bid to spice up the show's format.
