Baywatch fan Stephen Schofield from Amber was reminiscing about his favourite holiday spots with OTR, when he recalled a near death experience in the Maldives. After he paddled out into the blue he suffered the indignity of gulping down a mouth of seawater. Panic ensued and he fought against the current to make it back to shore. One problem - he only swims backstroke. Not exactly Baywatch style, but a definite "Hoff" moment. R Another square-jawed hero is PMS' John Malone. Turning up at parent-firm Bankhall's annual conference in Berlin, minus his luggage - and on a Bank Holiday - would cause most people concern, but John soldiered on regardless. Well, he was muttering something about going commando. R Bernard Clarke from the CML, is another dark horse. Bernie rocked the jailhouse - or trendy private members' club in London's Covent Garden - at the annual Skipton karaoke night, kitted out in Elvis wig and aviator glasses. A laudable attempt to deflect attention from some woeful journalist 'singing'. R One person who certainly won't be rocking karaoke, however, is Jennifer Blackwood from Intelligent Finance. Apparently once a proficient singer, Jennifer's performing days were over when she froze halfway through a solo performance of Amazing Grace in front of her school. Still taunted by memory, we don't expect to see Jennifer fighting for stage space any time soon. R One man who is eminently comfortable on stage is L&G supremo and sometime Mortgage Event chairman John Cupis. However, he was less than content when the roadshow rolled into Milton Keynes and, while his team lounged around at the Royal Hotel, an "error in booking" left him at a dodgy out-of-town B&B, where the bed was so uncomfortable he slept on the floor.
