DIARY: M&C's Johnson weds member of the Royle family at charity ball

What do you do when you're dressed up to the nines and ready to

enjoy a blinding night out? Well, if recent events are to be believed,

the latest thing to take home after a top night out is not a hangover

but a husband.



Yes, last week's Breakthough Breast Cancer Charity Ball at the Atlantic

Bar saw a plethora of advertising bods getting together in aid of

charidee, and, er, getting hitched in the process.



The event, the brainchild of an ex-M&C Saatchi account director now

known as Aphrodite the Goddess of Love, was compered by TV presenter

Lisa Rogers, and saw singletons from Lowe Lintas, St Luke's and M&C

Saatchi flocking to the Las Vegas Chapel of Lurve. The overly amorous

couples were matched using a thoroughly unscientific questionnaire that

required them to reveal which celebrities they would like to shag, marry

or throw off a cliff, and whether they were more like a tiger, llama,

chimp or gerbil.



Doubtless there were a few green-eyed monsters shooting daggers at lucky

Lee Johnson, the PA to M&C Saatchi's chairman, James Lowther, whose

unspecified penchant for chimps or gerbils saw her walking down the

aisle with Ralf Little from The Royle Family.



'He was a really nice guy,' Johnson gushed starrily, whose wedding to

Little was set for 12.30pm. However, her 'fiance' popped over to

apologetically ask: 'Can we move it forward to 10.30? I'm filming

later.' Tsk, already taking liberties.
