Teams at Specsavers in Newport and Ryde were busy 'spinning around' with excitement to announce new additions to the Kylie Minogue eyewear collection when tragedy struck.
Kylie has gone AWOL from the Newport branch!
Missing in action
A life size cut out of Kylie took pride of place in the store for customers to take a real life selfie with.
Someone however decided that wasn't quite enough, popped Kylie under their arm and walked her straight out of the door. The team has no idea where she is now but hope that she is being looked after and plea for her safe return.
Suffice to say, the team feel very lonely without Kylie and would love to see her back where she belongs - in store, by her new eyewear frames. No ransom demands have been made so for the moment, they can only assume that she is being cared for and is in no immediate danger.
Colleagues are urging the public to keep their eyes peeled, though. If you have spotted her and can pop her back into store, you can claim a reward!
