While you were sleeping, the rumour mill went into overdrive with (rather loud) whispers that the Kardashian Klan's coolest member would be walking - and we now have confirmation that it's true

Victoria's Secret and Kendall Jenner have both shared the news on their social media accounts, with Victoria's Secret retweeting Jenner's post with an accompanying 'HBD!' for the model, who celebrated her 20th birthday yesterday.

It's official: Kendall Jenner will walk in the Victoria's Secret show

It's been a massive year for Jenner, who's walked in just about every show and secured lucrative Estee Lauder, Balmain and Calvin Klein contracts  - not bad for someone who isn't even of legal drinking age (in the US at least) yet.  The insta-model is clearly thrilled, posting on her account: "The best birthday present EVER! always been one of my biggest dreams to be on this catwalk. @victoriassecret 's newest recruits. oh and I get to do it with my best friend."

She'll be walking alongside fellow insta-star Gigi Hadid, with their BFF Lily Aldridge given the honour of wearing this year's $2 million fantasy bra.
