We refer you to the ‘50 most eligible bachelors in Britain’ feature in
Monday’s Daily Express.
Sadly, the media and ad industries were all but ignored. A cruel blow
indeed to the testosterone-ridden emporia of Soho and Covent Garden.
Only two men emerged from the pack.
1. Steve Goodman, head of press at the Media Business: ‘Cancer. A
mummy’s boy. If you’re foxy, feisty, fun - you’re his.’ 2. Jon Wilkins,
‘ad agency supremo’ - which will be news to Chris Powell, the real
supremo (and, many would say, the real top totty) - at BMP, the agency
where our Jon works in new-media research.
We sought the female view. A Goodman associate said : ‘Not Steve
Goodman! He’s really boring. He goes for the Barbie look.’
Wilkins fared better with a (somewhat rueful) BMP admirer: ‘Mmm, he’s a
bit of all right. Women just fawn over him in meetings. But, he goes for
the just-turned-20 blonde bimbette.’
