As Britain's Next Top Model kicks off again soon, a new name has been added to the judging panel; a well recognised face from the world of male-modelling. Charley Speed, who began his modelling career at 17, has graced the pages of many a fashion bible and starred along side Kate Moss for Calvin Klein. He was also a firm favorite for Balmain and Calvin Klein eyewear and apparel.
He won a major modelling competition when he was 16, and his waif-like image was the height of trend during his career in the late 1980s and 1990s. His looks and talent also took him down the catwalks of New York, Paris and Milan which lead him to be one of the most celebrated models of the decade.
He will be joined on the panel by model and business woman Elle Macpherson, designer Julian Macdonald and stylist Grace Woodward.
Quoted on Vogue; Charley has said, "I was really excited to be asked to join the panel of BNTM, having modelled internationally since the age of 17, I feel I have the experience to help the girls negotiate the pitfalls and pinnacles of what I consider to be one of the most exciting careers out there."
