American socialites Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie will teach high school students in the next series of The Simple Life.

The hotel heiress and Lionel Richie's daughter became household names last year (03) when they gave up their pampered lifestyles to live and work on a farm with the Ledding family in Altus, Arkansas.

This year (04) the second series of the reality show - THE SIMPLE LIFE 2: ROAD TRIP - saw the girls drive across America in a camper van and stay with people along the way.

The third series is set to begin filming later this year (04) and will feature the girls trying to teach at a Pennsylvania school.
