Natasha Hamilton and Ritchie Neville's specs appeal

Natasha Hamilton and Ritchie Neville were presented with the Style Star gong at the Specsavers' Spectacle Wearer of the Year awards in London on Tuesday (06.10.15).

The couple - who have a daughter Ella, 13 months, together - proved they had specs appeal at the bash which was held in aid of anti-bullying charity, Kidscape.

Atomic Kitten star Natasha said: "I love my specs and I love them big and dramatic. Your glasses should be as much of a fashion statement as any other accessory you wear, there is so much choice now and a huge variety of styles to choose from.

"My advice to anyone buying a new pair of specs is to choose a pair that you feel reflects you rather than trying to go with a specific trend. I also love Ritchie in his glasses, they really suit him."

And Five's Ritchie couldn't help gushing about his partner, adding: "I think Tash looks great in her glasses and like Tash we both make wearing our glasses part of our look. It's great fun to receive this award and hopefully inspire others, especially kids, to wear their glasses with pride."

'Strictly Come Dancing's Kevin Clifton won the Best Newcomer award while Anne Robinson,was awarded the Services to Specs prize for decades of specs wearing.

Kevin said: "I'd be lost without my specs - I have to wear them for training and love to wear them to make a fashion statement. They are a genuine part of my look so I'm really chuffed to receive this award and it's all for a great cause too.'

Anne said: "I'm thrilled to win this award - I'm a huge fan of glasses. At all times my specs must say: sexy, sassy, clever and WOW!"

Held at 8 Northumberland Avenue, the awards night was hosted by Bradley Walsh and attended by stars including Joey Essex, Brian McFadden and his estranged wife Vogue Williams, Twiggy, Vicki Michelle, Ollie Proudlock, Ferne McCann and Lucy Mecklenburgh.

Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding performed a DJ set while Louis Walsh was a guest judge.
