London: Singer Rihanna has started house hunting in Britain ahead of her three-month stay in London to shoot a new reality series on fashion.

The singer plans to relocate from the US to London in May, as she has to film a new fashion reality series for Sky. So, she has been on the lookout for the perfect home to live in during her three-month stay, reports thesun.co.uk.

"Rihanna is coming back to Britain to shoot her Sky Living reality show and has decided to settle down a bit while she`s over. Although there may be occasional trips away, she`ll be based in London," said a source.

"Rihanna has instructed her team to find a mansion in or around the capital," the source added.

She has certain specifications for the home.

"Earlier this year, she considered buying a property in east London but now she`s looking elsewhere as she`s decided the pad will need gates to keep away superfans and photographers."

"Since she started shooting the Sky programme - a search for new fashion designers - she`s got really into it and wants to commit fully. And the crew behind the show have been surprised at the effort she`s putting in," added the source.
