Brookside, Eastenders, Emmerdale - they have nothing on the soapy world
Witness the forthcoming wedding of PR man Brian Basham - recently
divorced from Conservative Central Office head of news Eileen Wise - and
the very lovely Lynne Goodson, a former PA to Ludgate chairman Tim
In fact, the two have known each other for 20 years - Lynne was Brian’s
secretary at John Addey Associates - and were once, as the saying goes,
The relationship cooled and Lynne went on to marry Brian’s young
assistant Tony Knox - now chairman of financial PR firm Financial
PR trainspotters will note that Knox and Basham later worked together at
Basham’s financial PR firm Broad Street Group before the two fell out
and Basham went off to form Warwick Corporate.
But all this was ancient history by the time Brian and Lynne met again
last year at a charity ball. It was, says Basham, ‘a rekindling of a
very old affection’. I do like a happy ending.
