Diary: Fancy being a TV star?

Good news for those fame-hungry agency chiefs (and it's safe to say there are a few out there).

After a few aborted attempts, it seems that another advertising-related quiz show is on the horizon. The production company Talkback Thames is rumoured to have been contacting agencies in the hope of finding some senior ad personalities to take up a recurring role on a new programme that it's planning. Now, we all know these shows seldom go well, but there's no doubt people will still be banging on the door to grab their moment of fame. So, who are the Hislop and Merton of adland?
