Ever since a streamlined Vanessa Feltz was snapped out on the town with her new beau, the tabloids have been scuffling to place his face.

Ever since a streamlined Vanessa Feltz was snapped out on the town

with her new beau, the tabloids have been scuffling to place his

face.



It now emerges that the cuddly character in question is Jon Sayers, an

’old friend’ and a media man.



The press may have seized on to the fact that Sayers growled and grunted

as the voice of the Honey Monster in the Sugar Puff TV ads, and that he

has worked in various agencies, but they have missed a much meatier

piece of gossip concerning Vanessa.



The Diary can reveal that the svelte Feltz started her illustrious

career as a reporter on the esteemed title, Campaign.



Ex-Campaign editor Bernard Barnett remembers her for being crap.

’Getting stories wasn’t her forte. It was pretty obvious this wasn’t

going to be her destiny - that she wasn’t going to spend the rest of her

life writing about baked bean campaigns.’ (Well it pays the rent -

Ed.)



’She claims that I fired her. That may be right, I can’t remember.’



But the question of whether Sayers and Feltz first grinded their ample

hips at some illustrious event such as the Campaign Poster Awards goes

unanswered.



Sayers, who went from acting to writing commercials with a stint as

copywriter at Limbo and now runs his own radio production company, Boom!

Communications, is keeping schtum.
