DIARY: Sholt must have been too busy talking to sit and watch EastEnders

You may not be fooled, but folk at Sainsbury’s have evidently been confused on several occasions.

You may not be fooled, but folk at Sainsbury’s have evidently been

confused on several occasions.



The first of our pics is, of course, Sholto Douglas-Home of BT, but

those less well-informed about clients believe he is a dead ringer for

the thuggish Grant Mitchell (Ross Kemp) from EastEnders.



(BT’s advertising division also employs one Kate Fletcher, whose flame-

coloured, knee-length hair gives her an uncanny resemblance to Albert

Square’s Bianca.)



‘I’ve had people stare at me in supermarkets. I don’t watch EastEnders

so I didn’t know what the problem was until my wife explained it to me,’

Sholto says.



Hopefully, he will mug up in time for the shoot of the forthcoming BT ad

starring Dirty Den, Lofty, Michelle and Sharon (all former EastEnders

characters, Sholt).
