Rihanna and Nicola Roberts have teamed up to launch a new fashion talent show.

It's an unlikely pairing but Rihanna and the Girls Aloud star have joined forces for a reality show which will air on Sky Living over the next few months.

The singer's aim is to scour Britain for the next generation of raw, undiscovered designer talent with the ultimate challenge for the winner being to design a costume for Rihanna's Wireless performance in Hyde Park this summer.

RIHANNA'S STYLE HISTORY

Ri-Ri will be involved in casting and post-production, as well as making guest appearances, while Nicola will be the show's host.

About her new project, Rihanna said: 'I've always had a great love of fashion. It's a constant source of inspiration in my life, and is a big reason why I've grown into the person and artist I am today.

'I have been very fortunate to work with some truly amazing designers and stylists throughout my career, and they have been instrumental in making sure my creative vision reaches the stage.

She added: 'I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show.'

Nicola, who is widely known as the most fashion-forward member of Girls Aloud, is thrilled at the opportunity.

NICOLA ROBERTS' STYLE EVOLUTION

She said: 'I was so flattered when Rihanna asked me to work with her on this show. I'm so excited for us to get started on finding a new up and coming British designer who just needs a chance, a little bit of help in getting their skills noticed.

'There are talented people, undiscovered because they don't have the means, or their circumstances are too far away from the fashion world. This show is here to discover those people and give them a shot. I'm looking for someone who can think outside the box, and who isn't going to give up at the first hurdle. Ultimately, someone who can't go 'undiscovered' anymore.'

We can't wait!
