Foxtel announced today FOX8’s flagship series Australia’s Next Top Model will launch a national audition tour this month, signalling the start of production on the ninth season of the modelling reality competition.
The new season will air on FOX8 in 2015 and Jennifer Hawkins will be joined by celebrated Australian designer and long term judge Alex Perry, and model Didier Cohen.
Foxtel Executive Director of Television, Brian Walsh, said: “The whole team on the show has been deeply affected by the loss of Charlotte Dawson earlier this year. We feel the series will never be the same without her and in 2015 we will welcome a special guest judge each week to join the judging panel as in our minds Charlotte is irreplaceable.
“This will give the girls on the show unique insight and varied guidance each week, while honouring the legacy of our friend Charlotte and remembering her commitment to this iconic series.”
