Nico Mirallegro is new face of YO

NICO MIRALLEGRO has signed up as the face of new rock ’n’ roll clothing brand YO.

Most viewers[ONTDers] are used to seeing him in Upstairs Downstairs, looking like the Hovis bread boy on a day off [My Mad Fat Diary].

YO are the characters who provided IDRIS ELBA with the red bobble hat that LIAM GALLAGHER took exception to at the NME Awards the other week, sparking some aggro.

Manc lad Nico knows a bit about that after playing an amateur boxer in the period drama.

He is hot property in the acting game at the moment.

The Hollyoaks graduate stars as one of the lead characters in STONE ROSES-inspired movie Spike Island, which is out next month.

He also has a major role in new TV drama The Village.
