Alexa Chung is to get her own fashion reality TV show.

The TV presenter will front the project - provisionally entitled '24-hour Catwalk' - and it will be aired later this year on Lifetime, the network of Heidi Klum's 'Project Runway'.

According to the New York Post, the show will see designers compete against each other in runway challenges and will also feature creative talents such as Cynthia Rowley.

Despite experiencing huge success, the British beauty recently revealed her parents are not impressed by her career choice.

The 27-year-old star says mother Gillian and father Paul champion the skills of her siblings instead of her.

She explained: "When I first got scouted on a beach in Majorca, at the age of 14, I don't think my parents actually believed me.

"But that was the point with my parents; they were the least pushy, least impressed people in the world.

"My dad's still like that. Whenever I tell him about anything I've done, he always goes, 'Ah, yes, but look what Nathalie's done.'

"Nathalie is my dad's favourite. Dom is my mum's. Fact. I tease them about it all the time."
