Those wags at Mercier Gray are no strangers to the Diary. If they’re not snorting brandy in loud shirts at their tenth anniversary bash (MW May 22), then they are wrestling with footballers-turned-Hollywood stars.
Few got the better of Vinnie Jones on the football pitch, so this picture should perhaps be one for the “What Happened Next…” round on A Question of Sport. Although the agency didn’t see fit to send an additional picture of Rob Gray being scraped off a pub car park, the Diary was still concerned for his well-being. Fear not though: apparently the two are old friends and are about to launch a clothing range. Judging by where Vinnie’s right hand is about to go, though, Rob might be better off pursuing a career as a contralto with the Vienna Boys Choir.
