The tenth cycle of Britain's Next Top Model premiered on 14 January 2016 on Lifetime. This was the first cycle of the series to air on the network after the show was cancelled in 2013 during its original run on Sky Living from 2005-2013. The title of the show was changed back from Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model to Britain's Next Top Model due to licensing issues, although contestants from Ireland were still allowed to apply for the show.
