Big Brother's Derek turns to the Hamiltons for PR

LONDON - Derek Laud -- the ex-lobbyist and Thatcher speechwriter who took part in Big Brother 6 -- has turned to Neil and Christine Hamilton to handle his media enquiries.

The couple, personal friends of Laud's for more than two decades, are working alongside Keith Bishop at Soho-based MCS Agency to advise Laud and promote his interests.

They also advised the former MD of lobby shop Ludgate Laud before he entered the BB house.

Christine Hamilton, who appeared in reality show I'm A Celebrity. told PRWeek: 'He wants to do serious things and has been approached by a major TV company to do a programme on the Tory leadership.'

But she added: 'I would be very surprised if Derek stood for parliament.'

BB6 winner Anthony Hutton is being represented by John Noel Management.

The agency is also representing Kemal. Makosi is represented by Jonathan Shalit; Austin O'Brien Communications is acting for Sam.

Andy Lysandrou is acting for Kinga; Craig is with NMP Management; Saskia, Maxwell and Orlaith are all with management firm Money.

Eugene, Science, Lesley, Mary, Roberto and Vanessa are without representation.
