Drag Race UK's Tayce has joined Europe's biggest modelling agency, Models 1.

Announcing the news herself on social media this week, the star called the signing a "full circle" moment after being rejected by eight London agencies 10 years ago.

The queen - who was recently unveiled as the face of Coca-Cola - finished in the runner-up position on RPDR UK SE2 alongside Bimini and behind Lawrence Chaney last month.

"Lil full circle for me"

Tayce - who recently appeared on the cover of the Attitude Tea Time digital special, in association with TAIMI - told fans on Twitter: "When I was 16 I took it upon myself to come up to London and see some agencies, 8 to be exact over 2 days.

"Everyone single one of them rejected me, saying I was to young, too skinny and not ready. so this is a lil full circle moments for moi.

"10 years later we made it bby. [Sic]"

Other models represented by Models 1 include Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista.

Tayce's signing follows news of Bimini joining Next Model Management, who work with talent including Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa.
