Two of the beautiful people of the PR industry, Text 100 associate director Stuart Handley and Institute of Directors head of PR Judy Osborn are to tie the knot next year.

Two of the beautiful people of the PR industry, Text 100 associate

director Stuart Handley and Institute of Directors head of PR Judy

Osborn are to tie the knot next year.



But the two only ended up together because of the machinations of Clive

’Cupid’ Armitage, MD of Bite Communications.



The meeting came at Armitage’s 30th birthday last February. Handley, an

ex-colleague of Armitage’s from his time at Text, was at the party and

was introduced to Osborn.



The two met but Osborn, who was accompanied by IoD colleague Victoria

Wotton, admits she was a bit the worse for wear. Armitage later phoned

Handley and convinced him to invite the lady out for a drink. He also

called Osborn and told her that Handley thought she was gorgeous. ’They

needed encouragement,’ he tells me.



The couple will wed next year. ’I was looking for some payback,’ crows

Armitage. But ex-Text 100 colleague Handley may have the last laugh.

Armitage will be an usher at the nuptials and to kick off events at the

reception, Handley is proposing that all his ushers perform a Take That

dance routine.
