Synopsis

As the runner-up of Britain's Next Top Model, Abbey Clancy proved she's got the guts, the drive and the steely determination to make it as a major player in the fashion industry and now she's got her sights set on bigger and better things.

Now, to assist her make it on an international level, the legendary Janice Dickinson - the woman who put the 'super' into 'supermodel' - will mentor Abbey in all aspects of the trade and share her unique wisdom in making it as a model.

Janice spends two unforgettable weeks with Abbey in her home town of Liverpool and in London before whisking her off to America for a whirlwind month of castings and meetings with the best in the business in Los Angeles.

Part observational documentary, part travelogue, this two-woman mission finds out whether Janice Dickinson can turn Abbey Clancy into a bona fide 21st century supermodel.

The show sees Abbey taking on modelling challenges in each episode that mirror Janice's own incredible career with the ultimate end goal of cracking America.

Janice takes on the role of Abbey's mentor, giving the fledgling star a strict supermodel regime to follow and pushing her to her absolute limits.

Both women's reputations, and in Abbey's case her career, are on the line.

Janice has 30 years of modelling experience, having graced the covers of Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar and Sports Illustrated numerous times, and has never been far from controversy.

She broke the modelling mould in the 70's with her exotic looks and steely determination. Dubbing herself the world's first Supermodel, she paved the way for a whole new generation of models in the 80's and 90's by being the first model to insist on being paid like a star - and treated like one, too.

Abbey and Janice: Beauty and the Best features two huge personalities, one incredible ambition, a series of set-piece challenges and a whole heap of conflict.
