Scottish Life's Steve Bee was upstaged by a real live bee at his latest roadshow in Northampton, the Diary learns.
There was a real buzz in the auditorium when the pension guru rose to deliver his latest pension roadshow.
At first, Bee thought that the projector was humming until he realised that another bee had flown in and was hovering around the projector screen.
Stung by criticism that he prefers to work alone on stage, Bee protested that he made his visitor welcome. “I don't think we are related but he did seem pretty interested in what I had to say, especially some of the fine detail of the Finance Bill,” quipped Bee. “In fact, if he is a worker, he can stay on the team.”
