Loftus-Cheek opened up to GQ Magazine about his injury hell - and what modelling for Burberry meant to him.

Speaking about branching out into the world of modelling, the midfielder revealed it was a good way to kill the time as he was sidelined by his awful Achilles injury.

Loftus-Cheek told GQ: "It was amazing to work with Burberry; a British brand with the best quality of clothing and style.

"The first word that comes to mind when I think of Burberry is “class”. So to be involved with such a brand is great.

"I have never actually thought about working with a fashion brand before Burberry approached me. I have only worked with adidas since being a professional footballer.

"So the opportunity to expand into the fashion world with Burberry was exciting. When the opportunity came knocking I couldn’t turn the experience down.

"Being injured at the time, it was a good way to use some of my free time."

During the photoshoot, Loftus-Cheek got to work closely with supermodel Bruni - the wife of ex-French president Sarkozy.

On the experience, RLC revealed: "I enjoyed shooting this campaign – taking a few shots with Carla Bruni was a bonus!

"It’s amazing to work with someone who is at the top of the world at what they do – you could see the love for what Riccardo [Tisci, fashion designer] does."

We could see a lot more of Loftus-Cheek the model, too - after he revealed he feels a change in his fashion just around the corner now he's getting older.

The Chelsea man added: "I would love to add a real quality suit to my wardrobe.

"I have always been a guy who likes to dress for comfort and always will be. Throughout my teens I would always go for that street look.

"But as I’m getting into my mid-twenties, I want to be able to have different looks, which includes looking smarter, hence the need for a suit. I’m just starting to get into that now."
