Tyra Banks Returning As Host Of 'America's Next Top Model'

Tyra Banks is returning as the host of 'America's Next Top Model'.

VH1 has confirmed that Banks will return to the reality series next season with production set to begin this summer.

Banks, who created 'America's Next Top Model' in 2003 and hosted until last year, will once again take over from Rita Ora (photosRita Ora photos).

The former supermodel claims a chat with the show's producers made her come back.

"I missed by ANTM baby so Mama's back," she said on social media. "I'm overwhelmed and humbled by the intensity of the ANTM fan base whose deep affection for the show led me to have a change of heart."

"After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that remaining behind the camera wasn't enough because ANTM is woven into my DNA."

Interestingly, the announcement comes the same week as NBC announced that Tyra Banks will also replace Nick Cannon on 'America's Got Talent'.

"Tyra has always been the heart and soul of the franchise and her absence was deeply felt by our fiercely loyal fans who missed their Queen of the Smize," executive producer Ken Mok added. "We'd like to thank Rita Ora for being a great partner and total pro."
