The Wanted's Siva lands modelling deal

The Wanted's Siva Kaneswaran has landed a modelling contract.

The Wanted's resident pretty boy has landed a deal with the modelling agency thanks to his razor-sharp cheekbones and brooding dark looks.

For the singer, posing in front of a camera runs in the family.

"My older sister was a successful model in Ireland and she introduced me and my twin brother into the modelling industry at the age of 15," he explained to British newspaper The Telegraph.

"From this we worked non-stop in Ireland doing campaigns, shoots, and fashion shows. As we got older we moved to London and continued working as models until I was offered a place in The Wanted."

Usually, Siva can be found belting out hits with bandmates Max George, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness and Tom Parker.

However, the star feels a little unfulfilled following just one career path.

"Although I am on stage a lot performing, and often on music related photo shoots with my band The Wanted, I do really miss the kind of shoots you do as a model, that really focus on fashion and the art of photography. Fashion editorial shoots have a whole different vibe about them, so I am excited to be doing that again," he revealed.

Next Models said they were "delighted" to have signed Siva, meaning the heartthrob has joined the likes of Rita Ora and Ellie Goulding on their books.

The 24-year-old revealed what is next for him in terms of modelling.

"There are so many amazing designers out there - it's impossible to choose one, but labels I love wearing like Burberry, Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, JW Anderson, Topman and Reiss," he gushed.

"I like to mix high street with luxury brands. I love good tailoring. I'm excited to see the shows at the London Collections: Men later this month."
