ACTRESS and model Kelly Brook is eyeing up budding models in Ellesmere Port

The former Strictly Come Dancing star is launching Specsavers’s nationwide search for the Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2010.

The hunt is on for ordinary people who look extraordinary in their glasses.

As well as fronting the campaign, Kelly is supporting anti-bullying charity Kidscape.

Specsavers will donate £1 for every eligible competition entry to the charity, as well as all proceeds from an auction led by Specsavers ambassador Gok Wan, at the competition final in London in November.

The competition is open to men and women aged 16 and older, who are either current specs wearers or wear glasses for fashion purposes.

Prizes include a one-year modelling contract with Storm Model Management, a two week all-inclusive holiday for two in Barbados or St Lucia, courtesy of Virgin Holidays and Almond Resorts.

Patricia Sheehan, store director at Specsavers in Ellesmere Port, said: “The Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition gives us the opportunity to shout about the talent right on our doorstep who wear their specs loud and proud – and who are great role models for younger specs wearers to aspire to.”

Kelly Brook, girlfriend of England rugby star Danny Cipriani, said: “I am really excited about my involvement with this year’s Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition and the chance to promote glasses, not just as an optical necessity, but as a fashion accessory.

Entries can be made by visiting any Specsavers store or by logging on to, or The closing date for entries is Saturday, July 31.
