Who is the real-life Party Animal?

Many in the PA community have been devouring just-started BBC series Party Animals (News Analysis p16), but do they recognise the coke-snorting lobbyist at the programme's centre?

Diary only asks after hearing that producers based one compelling storyline on a real-life lobbyist.

PRWeek readers are advised to pay particular attention to episode four, in which Scott Foster starts working for a Russian with mafia connections.

Producer Elena Greene tells us: 'That came from an interview we had with a lobbyist who said "we were approached by a Russian billionaire who we later discovered to be quite dangerous and we were in a real moral quandary about whether to take him on as a client".'
