Flack

1. Well, hello handsome! Flack, like you, is sick of PR agencies resorting to the use of half-naked blonde women to draw attention. To redress the balance, we present Stewart Bint, PR and comms officer at Planit Software, who bravely dropped his kit for the Derbyshire, Leicester and Rutland Air Ambulance charity calendar. The sprightly 54-year-old is Mr June.

2. Fans of Flack will remember Bramble, the PRWeek-loving pet hedgehog of PrettyGreen and a regular on the back page. It is with great regret that we announce that Bramble died peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of 7 November. A statement from PrettyGreen confirms a taxidermist has been called so his memory will live on.

3. If PRWeek's latest crop of 29 under 29-ers were feeling smug, they will come back to Earth with a bump at the news that teenagers took over the press office of the Children's Commissioner for England last week. The commissioner could not confirm whether PR roles were considered 'adult' jobs.
