Whitney Port is heading back to reality TV — but fans of The City alum should know that this time, she’ll be shying away from any personal drama.

The 26-year-old Whitney Eve designer has just announced that she's the newest addition to the esteemed panel of judges for Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model. She joins fellow newcomer Tyson Beckford (the two replace season six Brits stylist Grace Woodward and male model Charley Speed) plus host and judge model Elle Macpherson and British fashion designer Julien Macdonald.
