Max Clifford, best known as an agent for celebrities and reality television stars, has taken on what could prove to be his biggest challenge - property.

A buy-to-let property club that told investors in April 2008 that it was time to get back into the market has hired the public relations guru to spearhead a marketing campaign.

Brett Alegre-Wood, chairman of Your Property Club Group, said that he had enlisted the help of Mr Clifford because: 'The market is coming back around. I don’t think this is total recovery, but we are heading back in — and I am also releasing a book in September.'
