Another week in a Lookalike Agency – and mostly doom and gloom I’m afraid. Monday brought us the news we had been dreading but were assured would not happen – Phresh Events had gone into liquidation – 2 Christmas personal appearances by Paul Mansley (David Beckham) and Gill Penny (Posh) not paid. The rest of the people on the job – paid – Susan Scott Lookalikes who politely invoiced and waited for our money – not paid. I can see politeness will soon be out of the window and is indicative of these depressing, recession times.
On the other hand Alison Jackson did shoot on Sunday for the South Bank Show feature on her, with Mary Jane McCurr (Amy Winehouse) despite leaving it until the very last moment to confirm. The other good news of the week is that Captain Jack Sparrow aka Simon Newton winged his way to sunny St. Barths today for an ‘Orange’ conference which was sheduled for January but due to a general strike in Guadaloupe had to be postponed until now. Lucky Simon had a non-refundable ticket provided for January so has already spent a week there on holiday rather than waste a good ticket.
