Gigi Hadid has had quite an exciting year. The model recently welcomed her first child, a daughter, with partner British-Pakistani singer Zayn Malik and has just revealed her next project; starring in an episode of cartoon program Scooby-Doo.

Hadid took to Instagram to announce her upcoming role as part of the ‘Mystery Inc’ gang in the second season of Scooby-Doo & Guess Who? Alongside a sneak-peak video of her appearance in the cartoon show, Hadid captioned the post, “IT’S ME & THE MYSTERY GANG !!!!!!?!!!! Tune in to ‘Scooby-Doo & Guess Who?’ TOMORROW on any @Boomerangtoons streaming service to catch us solving a fashion mystery in Pariiii.” Hadid will feature in the program as herself, where she is called upon by character Velma to help the gang solve a fashion mystery.

Earlier in the week, the 25-year old model teased her upcoming role in the show on Twitter by replying with pointed eye emojis to a fan, starting speculation that she may be taking part in the animated series. Hadid’s appearance in Scooby-Doo can be watched on October 1, on Boomerang’s streaming service, however, the service is primarily available for those located in the United States.

This is not the first time the renowned international model ventured away from the runway onto television. Earlier this year, Hadid announced she would be taking part in the cooking show Beat Bobby Flay. The show saw the Palestinian-Dutch model team up with chef Anne Burrell to compete against chef and restauranteur Bobby Flay. The show’s premise is to bring on two guest chefs each week to battle it out in a culinary duel. Hadid has also made an appearance on the big screen, again starring as herself, in the Hollywood film Ocean’s Eight starring actors Sandra Bullock and Rihanna among the ensemble cast.
