Niall Horan has signed a modelling contract with Wilhelmina Models.

The 'Slow Hands' hitmaker is ''really excited'' about getting in front of the camera but wouldn't class himself as a model.

He said: ''Well, to be honest, no, not really. Obviously, I'm 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.''

However, the 24-year-old singer isn't sure if he wants to follow in his bandmate Harry Styles' footsteps to go into acting.

Niall added: ''To be honest, I've never really thought about it. I am quite impatient so a lot of that waiting around between takes would absolutely kill me. But still, you know, I never thought that I'd be signing to a modelling agency, so I don't know. 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.''

And Niall thinks he has a ''pretty casual'' sense of style.

Asked to describe his style, he told Vanity Fair magazine: ''I would say I was pretty casual, but with a bit of a twist to it, and I sometimes can be quite folky and rootsy in what I wear. A lot of boots, and hats, and shirts. Yeah, quite basic, simple but effective type stuff.''
