The 46-year-old model - who started his career at the age of 21 after he won the talent contest The Face of 92 and has starred in multiple campaigns over his almost three-decade spanning career - has praised the 29-year-old plus size muse for her appearance, and he has openly described the brunette beauty as being ''really really beautiful''.
Speaking about the icon to BANG Showbiz, he said: ''It's such a tough business. A guy I like is Nyle [DiMarco], you won't know him but he's an American guy. Girls? I tell you who has a really stunning face and that's Ashley Graham, she's really, really beautiful.
''Ashley Graham is beautiful and she sells stuff to most of America who want to look good in clothes.''
And the dark-haired hunk is desperate to see ''good models'' on the catwalk and is eager to stay out of the debate around a model's weight because he believes the most important part of the job is to work with someone who poses well in front of the camera and can sell a product.
When asked whether he would like to see more plus-size models in the industry, the 'Britain's Next Top Model' judge - who has returned to critique budding models alongside Abbey Clancy, Hilary Alexander and Nicky Johnston on this year's contest - replied: ''I just want to see good models that are good at what they do. I don't get into the plus size small size or tall, blonde, because you rock up on the job and it depends who they are shooting whether it's hair, colour, style, suits or running gear. Because if you're going to have someone who is doing bench pressing or fitness they need to look like they're a fitness person, because it's selling a product to people who want to be in the fitness business.''
