The return of Fittest in Media began at Zenith’s offices last week. Run by Dennis Publishing title Men's Fitness, the challenge looks to identify the hottest, sweatiest, best built bloke working in a media agency.

Marc Whittle holds the top score following the first event.

Finally, I’m certain that Red Brick Road creatives Marcus Smith and Tom Hopkins will be pleased to see this picture of themselves getting some shut eye on the way to a shoot last month. Adorable.
