Diary: Life mimics art as Dell'Olio goes bling

Nancy Dell'Olio has, we are told, agreed to sport a Pasquale Bruni (PB) necklace at a forthcoming public event following a fruitful product placement bid by the jewellery brand's agency, Kudos Communications.

Agency co-founder Lindley Baptiste thought a piece of PB jewellery - worth £20,000 - would just appear as a 'bit of bling' when he pitched it to soap Footballers' Wives. But it was written into a storyline, featuring as a present given to the team coach's wife, played by Gillian Taylforth.

Now the real-life England coach's long-term partner Dell'Olio has pledged to don the necklace, too, says Baptiste. He clearly hopes Dell' Olio can bag the sort of front-page tabloid coverage that her holiday frolics with Sven-Goran Eriksson landed this week.
