Rita Ora is set to replace Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model.
After quitting The X Factor, the songstress is moving on to greener pastures as she will reportedly take over from supermodel Tyra Banks as host of the famous reality show.
A source told The Sun, “Rita is in a dream world as she’s landed the ultimate gig.
“She’ll be mixing her two passions of fashion and music and taking over from a TV institution in Tyra.

“Next Top Model bosses wanted to inject some freshness back into the format and they see Rita as the ideal new face. She is releasing a new single later this year to coincide with it,” the source added.
After 22 seasons over the space of 12 years, the popular show was dropped from the CW Network last year, but later picked up by VH1.
While Tyra Banks will still be a major part of the show as an executive producer, people behind the show wanted a fresh new face to front the series – and it looks like they’ve picked Rita.
Speaking about the show’s revamp earlier this year, Tyra said, “I’m pumped to identify that person and bring back the show. Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!”

However, the news comes after Rita was rushed to hospital on Wednesday as she was suffering from exhaustion after working tirelessly on a number of music and film based projects over the past few months.
Taking to Twitter, Rita shared a snap of her hooked up to a drip and wrote, “Today was pretty tough but I’m getting through it thank you all my fans and friends for the support! I love you!” to her 5.66 million followers.
Hopefully will be back in tip-top shape before filling Tyra’s shoes on ANTM.
