Diary: Edelman's Davies misses the target

Anyone who has ever felt the wrath of an older sister will be heartened by the story of Edelman senior account exec Gareth Davies.

The PR man shares a flat with Erica, two years his senior and fashion editor at The Sun. After 'a very long day in Paris', Erica sent the email equivalent of a cuff around the back of the head to her younger sibling: 'Can you PLEASE stop drowning the bathroom with water and wee every morning?' she pleaded, going on to ask if Gareth could pick up his own dry-cleaning.

'I don't think we've ever met,' came the response, to which Erica exploded in fury: 'I get home from a very LONG day, I have to cope with a puddle of wee, I sort out your dry cleaning and you're being silly. You can wear your sodding jeans!'

Only then did she realise the 'Gareth Davies' she had been emailing was a News of the World hack.

'She's always sending me stuff like that,' the real Gareth tells Diary.

'But I assure you I'm very hygienic.'

Whoever has to clean Edelman's gents on a regular basis will be, er, relieved.
