The star of Strictly Come Dancing and The Greatest Dancer showcased her own stunning specs style in a new photoshoot, as she launched Specsavers’ annual search for the Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2019.

 

Oti – who swaps her specs for contact lenses when she hits the dancefloor – says: ‘I’ve been wearing my glasses since I was 10 and I wear them all the time. I can’t live without them.

 

‘I’ve got about 20 pairs of glasses and I love changing them to go with different outfits. There are so many styles to choose from, specs are a great way for people to express themselves through fashion.

 

‘I feel more confident when I put my specs on. I wouldn’t be Oti without them.’

 

All glasses wearers, aged 16 and over in West Bridgford, just need to share a selfie and tell Specsavers what their glasses mean to them to be in with chance of winning the prestigious accolade.

 

For every entry accepted, Specsavers will donate £1 to children’s anti-bullying charity Kidscape. Spectacle Wearer of the Year has raised more than half a million pounds for Kidscape over the past ten years.

 

The money raised helps support the charity in providing practical support to children and families affected by bullying.

 

Oti continues: ‘Kids used to call me “four eyes” but I always say four eyes are better than two. I believe people should be proud to wear glasses. Embrace them, they are part of who you are and you are fabulous!’

 

Seven finalists, plus a social media favourite voted for by the public, will attend a celebrity-packed awards ceremony in London, with one overall winner scooping the top award and cash prize.

 

Specs wearers should get snapping and share their selfie at specsavers.co.uk/loveglassescomp. Deadline for entries is 30 June 2019.
