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.
