A British teenage boy is considering a career in modelling after being spotted by supermodel Tyra Banks... on Instagram
As part of an online competition, the presenter of America's Next Top Model shared the photos of just 16 young people - including 17-year-old Liam Hulmes - with her 1.3m Instagram followers, beneath the banner 'he has what it takes'.
Liam, who lives with his family in Mossley, Greater Manchester, and is studying for his AS-levels at Ashton Sixth Form College, was stunned by Banks' attention and is now thinking about compiling an image portfolio and contacting modelling agencies.
Liam Hulmes entered this photo of himself into Tyra Banks' 'do you have what it takes?' Instagram competition and she plucked it out of hundreds of thousands of entries
