"Confidence is about being comfortable in your own skin"

He first found fame on ‘The Undateables’ last year but since his appearance on the Channel 4 show, 27-year-old Tom Morgan has landed his first modelling job.

The popular programme showed Tom, who has Tourettes and Asperger’s, take part in an unsuccessful date due to a lack of self-confidence.

But, the rugby player isn’t letting it stand in the way of his career.

A brand that promotes body positivity and inclusivity for all men, retailer Jacamo have signed Tom to front its latest collection. 

“We’ve been following Tom’s journey and have enjoyed seeing his confidence continue to grow,” says Jenni Bamford from Jacamo.

“Tom’s story is another example of how self-belief and tenacity really can contribute to a greater self-confidence.” Plus, “He looks great in the pictures.”

The TV star who dedicates his time to raising awareness of his conditions has recently set up a charity, Mentoring Plus UK and is also an ambassador for the National Autistic Society and State of Mind Rugby Union.

Nonetheless, Tom said he struggled to overcome initial nerves in front of the camera. 

“I was pretty nervous as I’ve never done anything like this before, but it was great fun and modelling is definitely something I’d like to do more of,” he says.

“The Jacamo shoot has allowed me to continue to promote that, no matter what battles we may face, confidence is about being comfortable in your own skin.”
