Charity appeal: Giles Dempsey slips on his banana skin for Red Nose Day

However, this isn’t part of some elaborate plan by the agency to stand out from its rivals. It is in fact for charity.

Business director Dempsey will embark of a four-week fundraising plan for Red Nose Day, where he will wear 25 different costumes for the whole day, as he aims to raise at least £1,000 through his website, http://my.rednoseday.com/sponsor/25outfits.

The outfits will range from a spaceman to Batman, a banana and a chicken. Unfortunately for Dempsey, during the next 25 days he will be expected to take part in a few pitches.

Let’s hope his Red Nose Day antics don’t leave him red-faced.
