The team at Specsavers in Rugeley was delighted to welcome actor and writer Gerry Hinks into the store recently, when he popped in for a sight test.

Gerry, who appeared in Specsavers’ famous zumba advert with Hayley-Jo Whitney, lives locally and is a regular visitor at the store where he gets his sight checked. As well as his role in the advert, Gerry has previously taken up roles in popular shows including Coronation Street, where he played a vicar on the famous cobbles for several years.

‘I first started visiting Specsavers last year and was delighted to discover how friendly the whole team there is,’ said Gerry. ‘It’s incredibly good value and it wasn’t until I visited that I found out they also offer a hearing service, so I’ll certainly be going there for my sight and hearing checks in the future.’

Minal Naik, store director, said: ‘It was lovely to have Gerry pop into store for his sight test, he’s a wonderful character and even managed to get the team in the mood for some zumba. We look forward to seeing him again soon!’
