HOT ON the heels of the Chelsea preview night, Bell Pottinger yesterday threw another City shindig, pulling Centrica'sSam Laidlaw and hedge fund legend Sir Michael Hintze back onto the tiles for the second night in a row (although they both shot off early to catch up on beauty sleep).


Communications coach to the great and good (including Kate Middleton and William Hague) Anthony Gordon Lennox was a popular guest, pulling quite the crowd, including old client Iain Duncan Smith.


Ex-City spinner Hugh Morrison was there, causing some whispers about what the founder of M Communications has in the pipeline next.


Meanwhile The Capitalist caught Shore Capital'sHoward Shore digging Irvine Sellar about the Shangri La's problem with guests seeing into each other's rooms, "I thought Eye-full Tower was a hilarious headline," laughed Sellar, clearly not too worried about the hotel's newest quirk.
