'Britain's Next Top Model' reject Charlotte Holmes admits Elle Macpherson was more upset than her when she was kicked off the show.

The 21-year-old beauty was the latest modelling hopeful to be rejected from the Living programme last night (20.09.10), and while she admits she was sad to leave, she says host Elle - who had championed her from day one - took the news harder.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "To have her on side is fantastic. She was upset, we both had a little cry when the result was announced but she cried more!"

Size-eight Charlotte - who was told by designer Julien MacDonald she was too curvy and too commercial to be a catwalk model - believes Elle could relate to her because she also faced criticism at the beginning of her career.

She said: "I think she liked me because a lot of the critique I was getting early on - about me being too happy and smiley and too commercial - was something that was said to her at the start of her career.

"But I have to take the positives out of the whole experience, and it was so amazing and if I could achieve even half the success Elle has had, I'd be a very happy woman!"

Although she has been kicked off, Charlotte - who still harbours ambitions to make it in the fashion world - still has a keen interest in the show and has backed fellow contestant Tiffany Pisani to win.

She said: "I think Tiffany will win it and I'd like her to. She's come a long way and really puts her all into everything so she'd be a deserving winner."
