Etsi ketsi

Some odds and ends to sweep up, after a week on dodgy Greek wi-fi.

BBC Worldwide CEO Tim Davie, who's been doing good work on trade delegations, has been rewarded with a four year trusteeship at the Tate, appointed by the Prime Minister.

Jeremy Clarkson reveals in The Sunday Times that it was Alan Yentob, HR Director to The Stars, who picked up the phone to tell him his BBC Top Gear contract was at an end, following the Yorkshire hotel "fracas".

Jay McGuiness, now favourite to win Strictly with most bookmakers, went to the Charlotte Hamilton School of Dance in Balderton, Newark, as a teenager. The school offers "instruction and practice for Cheerleading, Ballet (English), Tap, Stage and Stage Dancers." They knew Jay as James. As did the Midlands Academy of Dance and Drama, in Carlton Hill, Nottingham, where he spent three years from 2006.
