Elsa Hosk, who has been with the brand for four years and Jac Jagaciak, who has been with them for two, both said they would be in support of even more diversity on the Victoria's Secret team.

"I think the whole world is more open to plus-size models and I am sure at some point they will be ready for it," Jac told the Daily Mail.

Hosk added: "We don't know...I really hope so."

Victoria's Secret has come under fire in recent years for its perceived lack of diversity among its squad of Angels, but Elsa said the introduction of 10 new Angels this year includes a number of nationalities.

"Right now there are a lot of Angels represented," she said. "We are from all over the world. We come from different backgrounds. We all had different lives before this, so it is really interesting how a lot of different nationalities are represented and it is super cool."

But, the fashion industry is changing and Sports Illustrated featuring a plus-size model for the first time in its Swimsuit Issue, with Australian model Robyn Lawley doing the honours.

And Ashley Graham said she would be more than up for the task if approached by Victoria's Secret, telling Miss Vogue: "If those guys are listening, call me!"
