British version of a highly successful international format whereby females take on a variety of modelling tasks (which always seem to involve wearing clothes and looking good on photo shoots, strangely enough) and living in a house together whilst getting gradually eliminated by the three resident judges and a bonus guest judge week by week.

This being Britain, the prizes are a little less glamorous than their US counterpart (one year's representation by a Proper Modelling Company, and an exclusive photoshoot with B magazine which must be elitist, aspirational and exciting because we've never heard of it).

It does keep the rather natty "airbrushing the eliminee from the group photo after the credits" thing they do in the original US show, however.

Series 2 runner-up Abbey Clancy would go on to forge a successful modelling and TV career. In fact, she would later be Head Judge on the show itself when Lifetime revived the show.

The final of series 6 was broadcast live, allowing viewers to vote for the winner for the first time.

From series 7, the programme was renamed Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model allowing contestants from Ireland as well as Britain to compete.

Series 11 fifth-placer Simone Murphy would later become a successful DJ.

All 12 series from the UK version were made available on ITVX.
