Mel B is heading to South Africa to film the second season of the reality show The Fashion Hero.

The former Spice Girl was announced as the host of the show that will begin filming in March 2021 at Sun City.

According to a press statement, the show celebrates everyone and everybody and challenges the fashion industry's standard image of beauty.

From 160 000 entries, 33 finalists will be selected to compete for the chance to be crowned The Fashion Hero.

They will compete in various challenges, each one designed to test the contestant's self-belief, clarity and strength of character while remaining true to themselves; the finalists will be evaluated on their inner beauty, ambition and courage.

Representatives from four international brands will be appointed as show judges/mentors and will each select a winner to become part of one of their global marketing campaigns. One overall winner will become the face and ambassador of The Fashion Hero.  

"Finally, a show has come along that stands for everything I believe in! The Fashion Hero is my dream job because it's not so much a television show but a movement. When I joined the Spice Girls, there weren't many singers in British girl bands who looked like me. I was different, we were all different, and that was something we wanted to celebrate", said Mel B

"I have never fitted into any conventional mould, and I wouldn't ever want to. The whole world needs to learn that there is not one thing that makes someone beautiful; there are hundreds of things that make someone special, beautiful and extraordinary and very few of them are skin deep. I can't wait to be part of this show and part of everyone's journey on the show. Get ready to fasten your seatbelts. This is going to be incredible."
