'It takes one to know one' read the show's billboards, and judging by Elle's flawless physique, enviable tumbling beachy locks and picture-perfect smile, Britain's Next Top Model auditionees have a lot to live up to.
She joined her fellow judges male model, Charley Speed, and fashion designer Julien Macdonald (not failing to tower over the boys we might add!) at last night's launch party in London for the new series of the show, which will air from next Monday on LIVING.
Elle has replaced Lisa Snowdon as the face of the show, and it seems her co-hosts are pretty chuffed with the casting: 'She doesn't have a stylist but she dresses like the most glamorous rock star's wife. If I was a woman, I wouldn't mind being Elle', Julien revealed.
The show will see 25 wannabe models battle it out for the crown of Britain's Next Top Model, and a few of them were out at the launch last night to prove they know a thing or two about striking a pose.
In the US edition of the show it's all about mastering Tyra Banks' elusive ability to 'smize'; we wonder what tricks Elle has up her sleeve! We reckon the ability to slip into teeny-tiny PVC trousers has to be up there!
The show starts on Monday 5 July at 9pm on LIVING, don't miss it!
