Former model, and chat show host, Tyra Banks have revealed that she doesn't miss modelling.

Banks was one of the most successful models of the 1990s and for the past decade has been hosting and executive producing hit modelling show America's Next Top Model which has been sold around the world - but being a model no longer appeals to her.

In an interview with Parade Banks said, "I don't miss modelling very much because I have America's Next Top Model, so for the past ten years I've been creating photo shoots, executive producing the television show, and doing a lot of photo shoots myself.

"I do look back to those modelling days when it was just some people on your nails, somebody on your hair, somebody on your makeup, and you're just like, 'What angle am I going to do today?' So it was a pretty non-challenging life in terms of not having to micromanage and wear so many different hats, but it wasn't easy. 

She added, "There's a lot of isolation with modelling, you're by yourself constantly, there's a lot of people telling you to lose weight and that you're not good enough - your hair, your skin - there's a lot of pressure."

Banks is currently working on the 21st Cycle of America's Next Top Model.
