Early indications suggest that the brief is to support Vodafone’s foray into the pay-TV market. The telecoms company confirmed in May that it was going to start competing with the likes of Sky and Virgin Media.

McCoy’s, the KP Snacks crisp brand, is holding chemistry meetings with agencies this week about its creative account. Pitches are expected to take place in two weeks’ time, with the review being handled by Ingenuity.

Royal London Group has appointed Mediavest to its £8 million media planning and buying business, previously handled by VCCP Media. The appointment follows the launch of Royal London’s new masterbrand in 2014. VCCP will continue to handle the creative account.

Just Eat, the online takeaway ordering company, has awarded its £6 million media business to M/SIX. The account was previously handled by Havas Media, and the pitch process was run by Ebiquity.
