Back in February, VH1 announced that it is reviving America’s Next Top Model, after the show’s 22-season run ended a few months prior. But there was a catch: Supermodel Tyra Banks is only returning as executive producer. The latest person rumored to replace her as host is none other than Rita Ora.

“Rita is in a dream world as she’s landed the ultimate gig,” a source told The Sun. “She’ll be mixing her two passions of fashion and music and taking over from a TV institute in Tyra.”

Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were also reportedly considered for the hosting gig. But as the “source” points out, this job could do double duty for Rita in particular. The new Atlantic signee, who just left The X Factor UK, is also rumored to be releasing a new single “later this year” to coincide with the TV debut of VH1’s reboot.
