The keep-fit star of the Specsavers television commercial has been spotted strutting her stuff on the streets of Burton as the opticians celebrates its 25-year of being in the town.

Hayley-Jo Whitney will be recognisable to many as the short-sighted fitness teacher who forced a group of pensioners to take part in an energetic work-out instead of their usual bingo session in the hilarious advert.

Her catchphrase is "shake what your mother gave ya", which she shouts at the group of bewildered pensioners as they join in her fitness session. But she's gone to the wrong class and because her eyesight is so poor she hasn't noticed. She forges ahead with her keep-fit session, prompting the opticians' catchphase, 'should have gone to Specsavers'.

And now she has been dancing outside of Specsavers Burton store, in High Street, to celebrate the store's 25 birthday. During the stunt she invited passers-by to join her in a street Zumba session.

Linda Joyce, the store director at Specsavers, in Burton, said how happy the team at the store were to get Hayley-Jo to help them celebrate.

She said: "We were really excited about bringing Hayley-Jo to Burton and created quite a buzz. It was great seeing shoppers joining in the fun as well as our team. Our actual store birthday is on Saturday, September 16, when we will celebrate a quarter of a century of being part of the Burton retail community.

"We'll have lots going on this weekend. It’s a special opportunity for a celebration which we look forward to sharing with the town that has supported us since 1992."

The store's anniversary will also coincide with the beginning of national eye health week, so will hold a number of fun activities to raise money for the Royal National Institute of Blind People, Guide Dogs and the LoveInspire Foundation.
