Blog: M&S underwear troubles Paxman

Joe Ayling | 21 January 2008

A leaked email from high-profile TV presenter Jeremy Paxman, which apparently suggested Marks & Spencer's men's briefs "no longer provide adequate support", has spiralled out of control in the UK press this week.

According to this story by the BBC, M&S CEO Sir Stuart Rose is actually going to sit down and discuss Paxman's pants and socks, and the apparent deterioration in quality he has witnessed before his very own eyes.

Proof, if it were needed, that celebrity endorsements mean everything these days - even in the case of pants.
