    Happy 17th Birthday QVC. I’ve only been shopping with you for about 9 years, but I’ve no complaints, apart from when I’m too late ordering and the product has sold out, and I do use Q-CUT all the time! Here’s to a successful Birthday weekend of shopping and for the future. I shall have to sit on my hands.
    Best wishes to all the presenters xx
