Cara Delevingne is set to launch a pop career and is being mentored by Sinitta

The supermodel has turned to the 80s pop star for help with a ''top-secret'' project, rumoured to be an attempt to crack the charts.

Sinitta told the London Evening Standard newspaper: ''It's a top-secret project and it's true that I'm helping her as a mentor.''

When probed further about the Burberry model's music plans, Simon Cowell's ex-girlfriend replied: ''I'm sorry, I just can't answer that.''

Rumours about Cara branching out into music surfaced when she was spotted leaving the London offices of Simon's SyCo record label earlier this year.

And Sinitta - who has regularly helped Simon choose his finalists on singing contest 'The X Factor' in the past - says she plans to share the knowledge the music mogul has given her over the course of her career with Cara.

She teased: ''It's about finding people who have natural passion and doing what Simon did with me: help them focus their creativity and ideas in a positive direction and give them an outlet.''

This news comes mere months after multi-talented model Cara launched an acting career with a role in Sky Arts TV drama 'Timeless' and upcoming British film 'Kids in Love'.
