DIARY: Naked but no ambition as PROs grin and bare it

Could The Mirror's dreadful relationship with the PR industry be

heading for a more congenial phase?



Three PR agency staff recently helped out the tabloid by baring their

most hated body parts in a feature on slimming in response to a Mirror

mailshot begging for participants.



Such kindness from Weber Shandwick's Josie Spiller and Jackie Cooper's

Katy Emami and Eva Evans came just weeks after Richard Madeley and Judy

Finnigan's PR team was humiliated in print over copy approval

demands.



The women insist the feature - Prepare to Bare - was more for personal

benefit than to help The Mirror.



Evans said: 'I did this for me. I wanted to see what other people

thought of me.'



Spiller claimed: 'I've had a good response from people and am glad I did

it.'



So the war goes on.
