AUSSIE supermodel and former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins will host the new series of Australia's Next Top Model.

Hawkins will commence filming in January on the eighth instalment of the reality TV series, Foxtel announced this morning.

"When Foxtel approached me to host Australia's Next Top Model I was so excited.

"To me, this is an awesome opportunity to be part of an iconic TV show and I can't wait for production to start," Hawkins said in a statement.

The series took a year-long haitus this year after former host Sarah Murdoch left the model search.

"We are thrilled to bring Australia's Next Top Model back to Australian television screens with such a star as Jennifer," said Foxtel's executive director of television Brian Walsh.

"Jennifer represents everything all models aspire to be. She's successful, popular, hardworking and has truly made her mark in this country.

"As our new host, she will bring her own personal experience, style and brand to the series, giving the aspiring contestants a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from one of the best."

The 2013 series of Australia's Next Top Model, produced by Shine Australia, will air on Fox8.

Aspiring young models interested in applying for the show can register now at www.fox8.tv or www.facebook.com/fox8.
