Over ten episodes, 18 designers will team up to create catwalk looks. The winner will receive a $250,000 prize and the opportunity to debut their collection with fashion retailer Net-a-Porter. The show debuts on 29 January.

France, 36, was born in Doncaster, England, and raised in a strict, Muslim household. He took an interest in fashion from a very young age, with his grandparents running a denim clothing factory. He made his first denim jacket aged 13, and went on to study fashion, before relocating to London to work for Selfridges and Chanel.

He began working in the US in 2008, and relocated full-time in 2015, where he found fame via Queer Eye.

Last week it was announced he will also soon be seen taking part in a charity special of The Great British Bake Off.

Chung, 36, made her name as a model when still a teenager, before branching out into TV presenting. She launched her own fashion label in 2017.
