If you harbour a secret addiction to the Top Model franchise and yearn to see just what goes on behind the slick and elusive glamour of the catwalk, feast your eyes on the Fashion Mode crew, preparing for their catwalk show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout on Sunday.

The scenes are sadly lacking in hairstyle drama, bitch fights and 'smizes' but fierceness is present in the hair and make up artistry and expertise. As for modelling, whilst being 6ft tall and wisp thin will certainly help, it's evident that the patience to wait around while you're endlessly primped, preened, tailored and teased is also a really good trait to have up your sleeve.
