The beauty queen from Birmingham says she is “instantly recognisable” and that she is “versatile”.
Brown says she can “win the competition because there is no one like her”.
The show will still feature Abbey Clancy and Paul Culfor as co-lead judges, and will be joined by fashion director Hilary Alexander and celeb photographer Nicky Johnston.
Brown is one of twelve consestants to take to the show in 2017.
Clancy says: “I’m so excited to be returning for the second series on Lifetime.
“These girls are really pushed to the limit in a series of testing shoots and challenges. Expect tears, tantrums, triumphs and surprise departures!”
This year’s series will feature the models’ personal stories, as they aim to become professional models and win the show.
It will also feature Millie Mackintosh, Estee Lalonde, Savannah Miller and Matthew Williamson.
Brown in 2015 started her transition but said she still wanted to have children that are biologically hers even if it means being a single parent.http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2017/02/08/britains-next-top-model-gets-its-first-ever-trans-contestant/
