After a host of Victoria's Secret Angels hung up their wings at the start of the year — we're talking the likes of Karlie Kloss and Doutzen Kroes, of course — we reckon we've found the girls' perfect replacement in Nicole Scherzinger... 

Sure she may not officially be a 'model' but after seeing these saucy pics of the 36-year-old songstress in her very pretty smalls, there's no doubt that she's lingerie promoting material. 

Taking to her Instagram account Nicole shared this snap of her trying on some gorgeous yellow lace lingerie and, you know, making us want to cry into the hulking bowl of pasta we've just tucked into this lunchtime... 

Captioning the sexy pic; 'Goofin around at the #VSAngelSuite got me #feelingsometypeofway. Thanks for making me feel like an angel @VictoriasSecret #nofilter', it really got us thinking that a role as a VS Angel could be the next step for Nic. 

After finishing her run in the London stage-show revival of Cats, Nicole has since been filming for the new US TV series I Can Do That but, after that wraps, she'll be free once again. 

As she's always managed to mix her music career with whatever else she fancies doing, we know her songs won't suffer — so, we think it's a natural progression. 

Here's exactly why Nicole Scherzinger should definitely consider a career as an Angel. Don't let this be an opportunity wasted... 

She LOVES a good costume
Give her any theme and she'll work it like a pro

She's already a major jet-setter
Flying across the globe at a moment's notice comes with the territory

She's got an OK body...
And looks beyond amazing in a two-piece

We need a personal stylist of our own, stat

She's *very* flexible 

Has a penchant for sparkle...
And all things glamorous

She's a whizz at multi-tasking
Walking in heels whilst dancing and carting around those hefty wings is no small feat after all...

It really is a no-brainer...

Oh, and she's a total natural behind-the-camera as our exclusive film from her InStyle cover shoot proves! Check it out below.
