Kimberly Wyatt has been announced as the face of Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2016. The singer, dancer, MasterChef champion and mum has posed in a series of stunning shots oozing old-fashioned movie star glamour to encourage UK specs wearers to pucker up and enter Specsavers annual specs selfie competition that supports anti-bullying charity Kidscape.

A total of £300,000 raised for Kidscape 

The competition has raised valuable funds for the charity, which has totalled £300,000 to date. Now in its 21st year, proud specs wearers from every corner of UK can enter the competition to be in with a chance to show their support for the charity while attending the star studded final in London and lifting the overall crown, along with £10,000 in cash and an all-expenses trip to global fashion capital, New York.

Kimberly Wyatt said bullying mustn’t be tolerated

Kimberly, 34, said: ‘I’ve worn glasses since I was teenager, I need them when I’m reading and writing my blogs, so it’s fun to be part of something that celebrates glasses and the people who wear them.’

Kimberly continued: ‘Now that I’m a mum myself, I better understand how important it is to make children feel good about themselves. Bullying, whatever the reason, mustn’t be tolerated. The fact we’re raising awareness and helping make wearing glasses cool for people of all ages is really important.’

The competition has five age categories – 16-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-59 and over 60s plus a Facebook favourite voted for by the public. A winner from each category will win a VIP makeover and will mingle with celebrities at the awards ceremony in London. For each entry made £1 will be donated to the Kidscape, adding to the £300,000 the campaign has raised for the charity over the last six years. The money raised will help to support them in providing training, support and advice for children, parents, schools and those who may be affected by cases of bullying and abuse in the UK.
