And the younger brother of Kate Moss says he 'never wanted to piggyback on her fame', despite admitting she 'can open doors'.
The 40-year-old, who runs Vietnamese street food truck called Vietvan, has also revealed how he ditched his party lifestyle following a cancer scare four years ago.
In an interview with The Sunday Times' Style magazine, Nick described how he has wanted to make a name for himself, despite his sister's enormous fame.

'I’m aware I get these opportunities, and that Kate can open doors. But if the door opens and I’m a c*** cook, it’s not going to stand up, is it? Fact,' he said.
'I never wanted to piggyback on her fame. You see people on the coat-tails of other people’s success and it’s cringy and embarrassing. You want to be your own person.'
He added that Kate, who has previously been pictured paying a visit to his food truck, is 'proud' of him.
Nick also described how discovering a lump in 2013 made him realise he wasn't 'bulletproof'.
