A teenage student has been named Britain's Most Handsome Man.
Remiah Stewart, 17, came top in a national modelling competition searching for the next big catwalk star by the Sunday Mirror and Storm Agency.
The 6ft 1in student pipped hundreds of fellow hopefuls who entered the contest.
As part of his prize, Remiah's first job was an exclusive photoshoot with the Mirror wearing his favourite streetwear, the Mirror reports.
"I’m absolutely amazed. I just never thought I could win against all the amazing entries," he said.
“I’m totally, totally shocked. I never thought this kind of thing could happen to me. I’m so grateful for everyone at Storm and the Sunday Mirror for giving me this opportunity.
"I’m so excited for what is to come. This is the first day of the rest of my life.”
Storm boss Sarah Doukas said: “Remiah has a great face and is gorgeous. He’s interested in a career both in front of the camera and in other areas, and I feel this will help him.
“Brands and casting directors love models and talent who can bring something dynamic to a shoot or a campaign.”
Sarah’s fellow judge, Storm model Max Rogers, who hosts TV show Britain’s Next Top Model, said: “I’m delighted the competition has proved such a huge success by revealing a really nice guy who has the potential to be very successful. See you at work!”
And judge number three – Pussycat Dolls singer Kimberly Wyatt, who is married to Max – said: “Congratulations! What an awesome opportunity to work with the best. Good luck on your adventures.”
Remiah has landed a contract with Storm, which is already planning a lucrative career for him advertising top brands.
His height is ideal for the catwalk – so expect to see plenty of him at top fashion shows.
Remiah, who spotted our contest on social media, adds: “I have always tried to focus on my studies. But in lockdown I had more time to think about what I want to do. I’ve always wanted to do modelling. I have followed Storm for a long time.

“When the Instagram post came up for the contest, I just thought ‘Why not? I have nothing to lose’.”
Remiah has a rich heritage, and says: “Mum is half Guyanese, half English and London born. My dad Dennis, an interior designer, is half Chinese and half Jamaican but was also born in London.
“I was born in London so that makes me British, Guyanese, Chinese and Jamaican.”
The teen lives with his mum Samantha, brothers Courtney, 25, Nathaniel, 23, Joshua 21, and sister Shanayiah, 10.
Remiah, who already has 700 followers on social media, added: “I hope to be a model for as long as I can.
"But I have to be realistic and hope to branch into another part of the industry. I am hoping to explore other areas too.”
