DIARY: The hunt for adland's incredible hunk fails to satisfy Soho babe

It seems that Cupid has been firing blanks. Our expose of adland's

most delectable talent last week for the benefit of the love-lorn Soho

babe has been met with a deafening silence by the maiden herself,

indicating that the Adonises we revealed did not, alas, fulfil her


However, it seems there are other specimens queuing up to get their ugly

mugs in the mag ... oh, and to try and fit the bill. The chief suspect

has emerged as a photographer's assistant called Mark, whose number we

have procured and whose broodish gaze, piercing eyes and long rocker

locks fit the Aerosmith bill. Hey, it takes all kinds.

However, some who bear absolutely no resemblance to our swarthy mystery

man are these sad tossers from Grey, who seem to think that they are

adland's answer to Brad Pitt. The motley bunch of cads include Dan

'smug' Hume, Olly 'Karate Kid' Calverley, Nick 'mullet man' Rowland,

Jimmy 'bum fluff' Blom and Jonny 'ponderous' Marlow. Nice try boys, but

don't give up the day job for the catwalk just yet.
