The Wanted's Siva Kaneswaran has signed a modelling contract with Next Model Management!

The 24-year-old, who was originally scouted to be in the boyband through modelling campaigns as a teenager, confirmed the announcement on Twitter yesterday (3 June).

Siva now joins the likes of Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding and Lana Del Rey who are also represented by the global modelling agency. Fans of the British boy band shouldn't worry though, as he plans on modelling alongside his music career.

Also taking to Instagram, Siva said: "Happy to announce that I will now be working with Next Model Management. Back to modelling again alongside my music schedule."

We're not surprised that Siva has been snapped up by the top modelling agency, just look at those defined cheekbones and smouldering looks!

Siva's newest venture will be documented in The Wanted's fly-on-the wall reality show, The Wanted Life, which has just made its debut in the US.

Siva later thanked his fans, adding: "Thanks for all the well wished tweets guys. Very happy to be working with @NextModels."

The Wanted are currently back in the US promoting their show but are without Nathan Sykes, who is on a hiatus from the band after undergoing throat surgery in April to fix a haemorrhaging nodule.

The lads have previously confessed their concerns at Nathan's recovery, admitting that he may never sing again, and last week Max George said that it could take "months" before Nathan comes back into the group.

Siva's return to modelling will now see him develop a fashion profile, so we could be seeing him on the catwalk modelling leading international brands! Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model maybe?!
