The reclusive art collector Charles Saatchi famously never turns up to his own parties. And the launch of his new book was no exception. There were, though, plenty of signed copies of My Name is Charles Saatchi and I am An Artoholic scattered around the Saatchi Gallery in London's Chelsea for guests to peruse. These invitees included Richard E Grant, Zadie Smith, Alan Yentob, Trevor Eve, Kathy Lette, Graham Norton and Harry Enfield who mingled in the first-floor galleries among the canvasses.

'Self', Marc Quinn's visceral sculpture made of nine pints of his frozen blood, fast became one of the most recognisable works from Charles Saatchi’s collection of works by the "Young British Artists" in the 1990s.

We've had musical reality TV shows looking for the next Maria and Nancy, and an international online dance contest launched by Sadler's Wells – and now Charles Saatchi is looking for the best of Britain's undiscovered art talent. The project, called Saatchi's Best of British, is inviting artists from any discipline to apply online, with three to five images of their work, before 29 March (artists must be over 18 and not already represented by a gallery).

A lot of people want to lick or even eat Glenn Brown's paintings. It is a permanent source of puzzlement and wry amusement to the artist because some of those pieces that seem to get the digestive juices flowing most freely are those in which he has gone out of his way to create a "toxic foul smelling lump."

The City may be shedding jobs at the rate of knots, but the gravy train at Mansion House shows little sign of slowing any time soon. The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Ian Luder, is hunting for a new private secretary, which according to an advert in the Sunday Times offers a salary of £106,630 a year. On the face of it, it’s a surprisingly substantial figure, especially given that the Lord Mayor’s jurisdiction extends only to the single square mile that is the City of London. To put it in perspective, Boris Johnson earns £124,364 for his job as Mayor of London, while Johnson’s deputy, Richard Barnes, gets just £92,594.

"The silly songs, the spectacle, the grandiose foolishness of it all. Let's hope that... Royaume Uni will gather its proper share of 'douze points' and bring the grand prix home," Sir Terry Wogan gets misty-eyed after quitting Eurovision

The biggest back story surrounding the opening of Charles Saatchi's brilliant new gallery space in Chelsea (see also In the Frame, page 10) was whether or not Sotheby's were ever going to take it. They had been looking for another venue to show contemporary work in London but apparently dithered so much that the 70,000sqft site was eventually suggested to Saatchi by property consultants Pilcher Hershman. Saatchi bit – and London now has a gallery to rival his original space up in St John's Wood.
