Pretty Surprising (or not)….

We’re a close knit bunch at PrettyGreen and would like to think we know each other pretty well…and on some office party occasions perhaps a little too well…However it is always entertaining to discover something interesting you didn’t know about your colleagues. This interest was initially sparked from the revelation that Hannah Jones prior to joining PrettyGreen had applied to go on Big Brother. Unfortunately she didn’t make the cut.

Below are a few more surprising wee facts we didn’t know about each other…

George – Starred in a TV advert for a Greek estate agent called Diamond Lettings at the age of 11

Lucy Mart – Appeared on Blue Peter twice

Lucy Porter – Was an actor in the Industrial Revolution segment of the London Olympic Opening Ceremony. Full bonnet and all.

Emma White – Background dancer in the club scene of Street Dance

Strings – His wife Wendy is really good looking. Every client who has met Wends says ‘wow’ with a surprised tone implying Strings should have bagged a 5 rather than a 9. (We don’t think so Strings!)

Tim – Once played football against Robbie Williams and got into a fight with him when he elbowed Tim in the face!!

Lauren – Was in a band called the ‘Georgie Kids’ with a hit song called ‘Friendship for a lifetime’

Claire Ashman – Escorted out of Radio 1 for saying ‘Fuck’ on Air
