Kimberly Wyatt has teamed up with Specsavers to help find its Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2016.
Former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt and Specsavers have launched the 2016 search for the Spectacle Wearer of the Year.
The singer and dancer has featured in a series of images to encourage UK spectacle wearers to enter the company’s annual specs selfie competition.
She says, “My taste in glasses is inspired by my idols Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot who carried off that sexy cat’s eye style so well. 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.”
The competition also raises valuable funds for anti-bullying charity Kidscape, which has totalled over £300,000 to date.
Kimberly, who returns to our TV screens to judge CBBC dance show Taking the Next Step, also commented, “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.”
Now in its 21st year, Specsavers’ ‘Spectacle Wearer of the Year’ campaign is accompanied by an awards ceremony in London, with last year’s being hosted by Bradley Walsh.
