DIARY: Brittain's all-staff mail gets WCRS females in the mood for courting

While all-staff e-mails are usually saved for important agency business, Andy Brittain, a copywriter at WCRS, clearly feels his love life falls into the same league.

Quite some time ago a testosterone-fuelled Brittain de-cided that he needed a "bird and fired off an all-staffer inviting female participants to return a probing questionnaire.

While many right-thinking girls would doubtless prefer to spear themselves in the eye with a hot poker than respond to such an exhibitionist, Brittain was flooded with responses to such questions as: "How many drinks can you have before you start crying? and "Is it possible for you to 'put a sock in it' for any length of time?".

Every man's dream? It appears not, as despite even having received yet another response to his e-mail questionnaire only last week, we can reveal that WCRS's former gigolo is now off-limits.

"Unfortunately for adland's female population, Brittain has had a girlfriend for six months, and would like to see his shameless e-mail courting days put well and truly behind him.

"I only did it because I felt I should have a girlfriend, rather than actually wanting one, he now claims.

And who is this chick for whom he has forsworn the media femme fatales?

Appropriately enough, a poultry buyer at Tesco.
