Grant swaps bachelordom for TV fame

Following rumours that Grey boss Garry Lace is to swap jobs with one of his clients – Air Miles chief Drew Thomson – the Diary can reveal that another executive is about to take the plunge. And he doesn’t even know who he’s swapping with…

Yes, Nation1 creative director Andrew Grant, not content with being one of Company magazine’s Bachelors of the Year (MW May 22), is to take part in new Channel 4 series Boss Swap.

In the show, to be aired next February, Grant will swap places with a mystery boardroom boss and will spend two weeks in his or her shoes.

The Diary hears that Grant has been spotted wandering the office, fingers crossed, and muttering: “Peter Stringfellow… Peter Stringfellow”.
