FOR seven years, model and tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity Char­lotte Daw­son was a ma­jor and colour­ful part of Australia’s Next Top Model.

When she died in Fe­bru­ary last year aged 47, pro­duc­tion on the next sea­son of the show was put on hold out of re­spect.

Fox­tel is determined to de­liver a stir­ring trib­ute to their fallen star and the first episode will begin with a homage from su­per­model Tyra Banks.

Banks, who hosts the US ver­sion of the show, speaks of Daw­son’s spirit and con­tri­bu­tion to both the mod­el­ling in­dus­try and ANTM. This sea­son is ded­i­cated to Char­lotte.

ANTM men­tor Di­dier Co­hen said the ges­ture was “the least we could do”.

“You can’t eas­ily cap­ture what she was to the show. She lived and breathed it. I think ev­ery sea­son should be a trib­ute to Char­lotte.”
