Kelly Osbourne replaces Liz Hurley as host of UK’s Project Runway

Model Elizabeth Hurley has been replaced as the host of Project Catwalk, the UK’s version of Project Runway. The new host is former Osbournes star Kelly Osbourne.

Hurley was dumped because “show bosses reportedly decided that Liz was too “wooden” to front the programme,” ITV reports. About a year ago, she beat out Elle MacPherson for the job.

No word why producers went with Kelly Osbourne, of all people. But Kelly said, “The chance to do a show that features two of my favourite loves — TV and fashion is a dream come true. What more could a girl want?”
