Quite the spectacle

​Shane Haron was crowned Spectacle Wearer of the Year for 2018

Shane Haron has been crowned Spectacle Wearer of the Year for 2018, taking home a cash prize of £10,000.

Haron, a mind coach and personal trainer from Romford, was presented the award by pop star Claire Richards and host Rylan Clark-Neal at Specsavers’ annual awards in London last week.

The awards also recognised celebrities. Love Island star Dani Dyer won best newcomer, The Great British Bake Off’s Sandi Toksvig was recognised for her Service to Specs, and Ryan Thomas and Lucy Mecklenburgh took home the Specs Style Couple award.

Thousands of applicants were narrowed down to just a handful, with a star panel of judges presenting on the night to decide the winner. X Factor’s Louis Walsh and Tulisa were joined by Strictly Come Dancing’s Shirely Ballas and last year’s winner, and Love Island contestant Alex Miller, along with Specsavers’ co-founder Dame Mary Perkins.
