Nadine announced as Spectacle Wearer of the Year ambassador

Nadine Coyle shows off her ‘specs’ appeal – as she launches the Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2017.

The former Girls Aloud star, 31, is urging glasses wearers to enter a competition to find the public Spectacle Wearer of the Year run by the high street opticians. Finalists will attend a star-studded awards ceremony in London, with one overall victor claiming the coveted title and £10,000.

Nadine said: “I realised I needed glasses to drive and read last year, and I’ve been building up my specs wardrobe ever since. I’ve been experimenting with some unique new optical styles, such as cat’s eyes and transparent frames. I can’t believe what I’ve been missing for all these years!

“I was thrilled to win the newcomer award last year, so it’s a real honour to launch the search to find the 2017 Spectacle Wearer of the Year.”

The competition has raised more than £400,000 for anti-bullying charity Kidscape over the past six years.

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.

£1 will be donated to Kidscape for each entry made.

Wearers can enter the competition online at specsavers.co.uk until July 2nd.
