Abbey Clancy doesn't mind if her young daughters go into modelling: 'I'll support them all the way'

"If it's something they want to do then I'll support them all the way," she said

The brand new series of BNTM will see Abbey make a gorgeous return to the judging panel alongside male supermodel Paul Sculfor, fashion guru Hilary Alexander OBE and celebrity photographer Nicky Johnston. Even though she can sympathise with the hopefuls, the TV star claims she is one of the stricter judges. "I'm surprisingly quite tough and firm with them," she said. "I want them to understand at how big an opportunity this is to them. It's a crash course into modelling and I want them to take it seriously."

"I want to see how dedicated and focus they are," Abbey continued. "It's not all about, 'I can take a pretty picture of myself and put it on Instagram.' Some of the girls that come on, they don't know any of the photographers or designers. But if their lifelong dream is to become a model, then I want them to take this seriously, I want them to try hard to absorb as much information as possible as well as having a good time." Ever the professional, Abbey makes sure she doesn't favour any of the competitors. "You definitely do get attached to the girls," she added. "Like anything, some of them you are fonder of than the others. But you have to be professional and not let personal feelings get involved or in the way of our judgement - we judge them solely on their performance as models."

Britain's Next Top Model starts on 16th March at 9pm on Lifetime
