Once again, Metro will have an iconic figure guest editing our papers and we're delighted, Metro Editor in Chief Tony Metcalf said.

Lady Gaga was most recently a guest editor for Metro and held a similar competition for an assistant.
I really appreciate the opportunity and it's a wonderful chance for me to show the world that little monsters are not just a fan thing, but exist outside the music world altogether, Gaga told Metro after her day spent as Editor.
Gaga reportedly showed up for her first day on the job back in May sporting large hair, black high heels, fishnets and a black bra.
