Sian Lloyd toasts birthday with CIPR

Although cleverly scheduled to avoid both World Cup semi-finals, the CIPR Excellence Awards, held in London this Monday, managed to clash with host Sian Lloyd's 47th birthday.

Keen to retain some semblance of celebration, Lloyd brought along fiance Lembit Opik, the Lib Dem MP, for the evening. And having previously expressed a penchant for sharing late-night baths with her politico beau, one suspected the party was far from over, despite a ceremony that ended at midnight.
