He may be a violent thug, but look at those cheekbones.

Crime does pay after all.

Jeremy Meeks' prison mugshot went viral two years ago when it was posted on the Stockton Police Department's Facebook page, on account of his blue eyes and chiselled jawline.

Well, now that the convicted felon has been released from jail - where he spent time for possessing a firearm - he has been snapped up by White Cross Management with a view to a career in modelling, and even acting.

This is a man who had women offering to pay his bail despite the fact that he's married.

He told ABC last year that he had been putting in time at the gym to be ready for his close-ups when he left prison.

"I eat healthy. I do a lot of push-ups, pull-ups, dips, burpees, and I stay very active," he said.

Happy Valentine's Day ❤️
