Rumour has it tennis ace Andy Murray and his girlfriend Kim Sears are on the verge of signing a contract with the British fashion giant
Andy Murray and Kim Sears are close to signing a contract with British super-brand Burberry, according to new reports.
Sources say the couple are ‘on the verge’ of signing a deal to front a sizzling new advertising campaign, after Christopher Bailey was revealed as a fan.
‘Andy may not seem like the obvious choice for a fashion campaign, but he has proven he can scrub up incredibly well,’ a source told the Daily Mail.
‘He is in great shape and has that great bone structure which Burberry loves. Kim is gorgeous and has amazing hair.’
‘Andy and Kim will fit nicely into that group.’
The couple have twice been spotted in the front row at Burberry shows, and both wore Burberry to the Wimbledon champions’ ball after Murray took home the Wimbledon trophy last week.
Andy Murray also wore Burberry to meet David Cameron at 10 Downing Street.
Insiders say the couple’s management has been orchestrating the talks, although an official announcement has yet to be made.
Today Burberry refused to confirm or deny the claims, saying simply: ‘We never comment on campaigns until they are announced.’
If they did land the Burberry gig, Andy Murray and his gorgeous girlfriend Kim Sears would be following in the footsteps of recent model signings, Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge.
In the past, Cara Delevingne and Eddie Redmayne, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Sam Riley have all paired up to promote the British fashion brand.
