Tyson: UK girls are polite but wild

Tyson Beckford has joined the judging panel of Britain And Ireland's Next Top Model

New Britain And Ireland's Next Top Model judge Tyson Beckford has said that while he has always known British girls to be polite, they also have a wild side.

The American male model, who has joined the judging panel for the new series of the catwalk competition, revealed it was good to see UK girls' cheeky side among the contestants.

Tyson said: "I always felt they were beautiful. I worked with many in my career and they were always very polite, so it's good to see that they have personality and are very cheeky."

But the Ralph Lauren model admitted he had always found British models very forthcoming when working on steamy poses.

He laughed: "They don't ask - they say, 'I'm going to give you a kiss now, if you don't mind.' They're very polite, very well brought up, but there are the wild ones too."

Tyson is a big fan of British chocolate and Arsenal football club so he has enjoyed working in the UK and Ireland for the show.

He said: "I grew up in the West Indies so it was very British-influenced, part of my heritage.

"It's almost like coming home, I feel at home here."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
