Series summary

A new format was introduced at judging beginning with this cycle. Guest judges were no longer a deciding factor during eliminations. At panel, the judges went straight into deliberation without evaluating each contestant individually. Furthermore, there were multiple contestants in danger of elimination each week as opposed to the usual two in seasons past. Only the contestants in danger of elimination received in-depth critique and feedback on ways to improve their performance.

Cycle 9 auditions began on November 2012. The show saw a record number of auditions held in over 17 cities ranging from Plymouth to Glasgow. Filming for the show's ninth cycle began on 21 January 2013[2]

The prizes for this cycle included a modelling contract with Models 1, a fashion spread and cover feature in Company magazine, contracts with Revlon cosmetics and TRESemmé, and an all-expenses paid shopping spree to New York City, courtesy of Destinology.

The winner of the competition was 23-year-old Lauren Lambert from Wallington, Surrey.[1][4][5]
