Niall Horan has been signed to a major modelling agency in the States.

The Mullingar and One Direction lad recently signed with New York agency, Wilhelmina Models.

The agency has already represented the likes of Kendall Jenner, Nicki Minaj, Nick Jonas, and Leona Lewis.

And now, they've added Niall to their long list of A-list celebs set to be strutting their stuff on the catwalk (or just taking some pics, who knows).

The 24-year-old singer confirmed the news in his latest interview with Vanity Fair.

He admitted that he never really thought he'd end up getting into modelling, but that he has always been into "the fashion side of things."

“I think it’s part of our culture, and what we do, and my job. I just kind of like fashion in general. I wouldn’t say I was a model.

“I’m far from that, but obviously Wilhelmina thinks different. It’s gonna be fun to see what happens. Now that it’s been put in front of me I’m just really excited about it to be honest.”

Niall also said that he wouldn't entirely rule out acting either.

This comes after his former bandmate Harry Styles made his film debut in Dunkirk earlier this year.

“Obviously if the right thing came around I’d give it a look, but I doubt that they’ll be coming and knocking at my door. I’d probably have to go looking for them.”

Niall's solo album, Flicker, was released last month.
