The Week: Advertising News - MCBD backs Durden

Miles Calcraft Briginshaw Duffy has given Jonathan Durden its full support after the agency's recently appointed partner confessed to spending thousands of pounds on prostitutes and revealed that he was entering rehab for cocaine addiction.

Helen Calcraft, a founding partner of MCBD, said: "Jonathan has had to deal with more turbulence and tragedy in his private life than many of us can imagine. Clearly he needs to confront some dark demons, and our only concern right now is for him to get well.

"The Big Brother experience has indeed come at a very high price for Jonathan, but he remains our colleague and our friend."
