UPN’s fifth cycle of its top-rated reality series “America’s Next Top Model” is adding former supermodel Twiggy as a panel judge, replacing former supermodel Janice Dickinson, who has been a judge on “Model” for its first four installments.

Ms. Dickinson, who will appear on the next installment of VH-1’s reality show “The Surreal Life,” is also working on a book and a television production deal.

“We wish her well in all of her future endeavors,” said “Model” executive producer Ken Mok in a press release.

Model coach J. Alexander, who has appeared on past “Model” installments, is also joining the judging panel. “Model” creator and executive producer Tyra Banks and fashion photographer Nigel Barker will remain on the judging panel. Special guest judges will continue to appear on selected episodes.
