DIARY: Neil Reading PR offers Ash more than lip service

Diary was intrigued to see actress Leslie Ash - bidding to recover from her 'trout pout' disaster - landing a glowing front-page picture-slot in the Daily Mirror last week.

Ash - the Men Behaving Badly star whose collagen implants in her lips left her looking like a fish - has hired Neil Reading PR to handle personal publicity, and the Mirror piece was early fruit.

'She has had a rough ride from the tabloids for the best part of a year.

Throughout this, she has handled herself with considerable dignity,' says Reading, who also handled the recent opening of SO.UK SO.HO, Ash and former-footballer hubby Lee Chapman's Teatro-replacement eaterie.

Alas, when asked what he has planned for Ash next, Reading is rather coy, saying only: 'Up until now, she has predominantly appeared in the tabloid arena - we will be talking about her with the glossies and broadsheets.'
