Kirsty Bilbie helped launch the annual Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition at Specsavers in Belper.

Belper-based Kirsty (24) was last year’s People’s Choice winner of the competition which celebrates people who look good in their specs. Kirsty, made it through from hundreds of entries via Facebook, to take the title.

Girls Aloud singer and West End actress Kimberley Walsh is the face of the national competition, which sees £1 donated by Specsavers to anti-bullying charity Kidscape for every entry.

This year’s overall winner will be presented with £10,000 in cash and a dream holiday to the Bahamas at a star-studded awards event hosted by Gok Wan later this year. 

There are four age categories – 16-24; 25-39; 40-59 and 60+, plus a Facebook favourite voted for by the public. A winner from each category will win a VIP makeover and will attend the celebrity-studded grand final in London at 8 Northumberland Avenue on Tuesday 7 October.

To be in with a chance of scooping the biggest accolade in the specs-wearing world you can enter the competition online or via Facebook.
