DIARY: Selfless event organiser could be persuaded to put love before duty

Nick Deyong, who runs his own PR competitions and promotions company, had an interesting experience at the possibly slightly dubious Men for Sale show, broadcast on ITV on Wednesday night.

Nick Deyong, who runs his own PR competitions and promotions

company, had an interesting experience at the possibly slightly dubious

Men for Sale show, broadcast on ITV on Wednesday night.



Deyong, who organised the prizes for the event - which features an

audience of women bidding rabidly for a range of celebrities such as

David Ginola to raise money for charity - himself became the object of

attention for one young female.



As the poor man waited innocently in the wings, a determined young

thing, perhaps slightly giddy with the effects of champagne, made her

bid for Deyong and refused to take no for an answer.



’I know I regard my firm as a full-service promotion company, but that

would have been taking things a just a little too far,’ he says,

stoutly.



The 25-year-old, who describes himself disingenuously as ’single and

available’, sacrificed a great opportunity to maintain his professional

standing.



Now Deyong tells me that, as he is no longer constrained by professional

protocol, if the young lady in question wanted to get in touch with him,

her attentions would certainly not be spurned a second time.



Deyong adds that he was impressed to get such attention when finely

honed celebrities such as Ginola and Jean-Claude Van Damme were

available (although Van Damme’s recent penchant for wrecking hotel

bedrooms might have allowed Deyong a slight edge in the chivalry

department).



Nonetheless, the Muscles from Brussels raised the most money on the

night, with two brave and eager women contributing pounds 30,000 towards

six children’s charities, for the chance of minor roles in Van Damme’s

latest action movie.
