Diary: House-proud Hastings sells up (for start-up?)

Nick Hastings, the executive creative director of Euro RSCG London, is not a publicity seeker. He never rings Campaign unless it's to return a call and never demands a new, more flattering photograph, like so many of his peers. But there's clearly one thing he is proud of - his house.

You may have come across the front-page article in The Sunday Telegraph's House & Home section about Notting Hill. There it was in all its glory - Hastings' manor in Norland Square. And, lucky readers, it's up for sale at £3.3 million, complete with "Japanese hardwood floors" and a "cooking zone fitted with orange rubber cupboards".

Some would suggest Hastings is cashing in before a property crash but Campaign has another theory: it's to fund the start-up he's said to be plotting with Nigel Long, the ex-Euro RSCG chief executive.
