We've been given a first look at Jake's professional shots and he's quite the natural when it comes to being snapped, right?

In the images, the 27-year-old can be see flaunting his (pretty impressive, might we add) biceps and showcasing his colourful collection of tattoos too. He's definitely perfected that smouldering eye look, hasn't he?

You can thank us later, ladies...

Speaking about his new career move into modelling, Jake, who is currently dating Danielle Fogarty, has said he "can't wait to get stuck in."

The 'Blindfold' singer gushed: "I can't wait to start working with MOT Models. It's a completely new challenge that I'm keen to get stuck in to and see where it takes me!"

Jake's exciting news comes as he is set to release his EP New Chapter later this week (1 April). Jake has already showcased two singles from his EP, 'Blindfold' and 'Can't Stop The Rain' and recently opened up about the inspiration behind his new music.

Appearing on Loose Women recently, Jake revealed he pens all his own material and explained it had "been a long time coming."

Jake, who lost both his dad and younger brother to cancer, admitted grief took him in a "downward spiral." Now, he has channelled his experience with loss into his music and is hoping to relate to others in a similar situation.

He said: "I dealt with it badly. I'm not here talking like I want pity... I want people to know you can come out of it and be alright. I tried to get away and I tried to hide from it. It was tough.

"I wanted to write songs, like the single Blindfold, which is about losing someone, that somebody can maybe listen to and say, 'He's been through a tough time... if he can pull through it then I can as well.'"
