Rihanna X Factor

Pop babes Rihanna and Nicola Roberts are teaming up on a reality telly talent show which will uncover an up and coming fashion designer.

Each week will see numerous challenges as hopefuls are tasked with styling various musicians and celebs.

Ultimately, the winner of the currently titled series – which will air on Sky Living this year - will get the chance to dress Rihanna for her gigs over the summer.

"I've always had a great love of fashion. It's a constant source of inspiration and is a big reason why I've grown into the artist I am today," Rihanna said today.

"I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts."

Nicola added: "I am so excited to be working with Rihanna on finding a new up-and-coming designer. I was so flattered when she asked me to work with her on this show. I'm so excited for us to get started."

Jane Johnson, director of Sky Living, added: "I am thrilled we are working with Rihanna on her first TV project.

"She is a great talent with a huge international following and a brilliant and individual fashion sense."
