Just when we thought 2012 couldn’t get any better, it’s been reported that American Model Tyson Beckford is to join Elle Macpherson and Julien Macdonald in hosting the eighth season of Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model.

Global style icon, Elle Macpherson will still head the panel, alongside top designer Julien Macdonald and will now be joined by Tyson Beckford and The Hill’s star Whitney Port.

The 41-year-old hottie was a guest judge last season, and a mentor on the Australian and American versions of Make me a Supermodel, so judging is nothing new to him.

Well we certainly can’t wait for the show to start, and we’re praying that Beckford was made to sign some contract that ensures he is topless for at least half the season.
