Sadly, there will be no more Project Catwalk after Sky One announced plans to drop the reality TV series in favour of more "female-friendly" shows. Launched back in 2006, the show aimed to discover new British fashion talent, based on the US-format of Heidi Klum's highly successful Project Runway. For the third season, Kelly Osbourne took over the reins as host from Liz Hurley. She was joined by designer Ben de Lisi, who acted as both a judge and mentor.

"Project Catwalk was a great addition to Sky1's schedule," a Sky One spokesperson said. "Kelly Osbourne, Ben de Lisi and the team have provided a fantastic platform for genuine talent, introducing the rising stars of fashion to the UK."

"We felt the series had come to a natural end and we're now looking for some new female-skewed formats for the 8pm slot to complement our success in the 9pm and 10pm hours."

In its third series, just 110,000 viewers tuned in, a drop from 300,000 viewers in its second-year run.

A bit of a blow for the fashion industry, and our yet-to-be-discovered talent. I just really hope that Kelly hasn't been beating herself up over it.
