Los Angeles - Rihanna and Nicola Roberts are set to host a new fashion TV show.

The You Da One singer and the Girls Aloud beauty will be on the hunt for a designer to create an outfit for Rihanna's performance at London's Wireless festival later this year in a 10-part series on Sky Living.

Rihanna said: "I've always had a great love of fashion. It's a constant source of inspiration and is a big reason why I've grown into the artist I am today.

"I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts."

Delighted

Nicola - who is a well-known fashion lover alongside her solo music career - added she was delighted to be working with Rihanna.

She commented: "I am so excited to be working with Rihanna on finding a new up-and-coming designer.

"I was so flattered when she asked me to work with her on this show. I'm so excited for us to get started."

The show will be aired in the summer.
