DIARY: L’amour wasn’t on the menu when Kiki and Gerry went to France

It’s been brought to our attention that a number of certain miserable types within Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO have given Kiki Kendrick a little stick recently - not necessarily for appearing on Blind Date, but for having it written up in the Diary.

Hey, lighten up - where’s your sense of humour? Remember, your boss is

wacky enough to be chairman of Millwall Football Club and the agency

continues to inflict Bob Hoskins on a weary nation, so you must possess

one somewhere.



Anyway, everyone else - bar a few killjoys in Marylebone - was tuned in

to last week’s Blind Date with bated breath. Would Kiki hit it off with

Gerry from the US Air Force? It didn’t, at first sight, look promising.



He bought her roses in Anjou, she bought him a studded collar. ‘A rose

for my rose’, ‘a stud for my stud’ - sometimes it really isn’t that good

to talk. There was neither friction nor frisson. Don’t you just hate it

when they end up nothing more than friends?



Back at base, Kiki looked nervous as hell. However, the two were

surprisingly nice about each other, pledging even to see one another

again. Still, we wouldn’t advise Cilla to go dashing out to buy a new

hat.



As for Kiki’s secret (Campaign, last week), we think some people have

been so mean to her in the past week that we will be super nice and keep

it between her and us. So there. She’s given us a lorra lorra laffs. Ta-

ra.
