Sorry my last blog was delayed but the lovely lady Louise who posts my blogs was off sick with a very nasty cold – probably the same as I had but as a man, of course, I had it far worse!!
On Wednesday night I had the great pleasure of escorting Miss Alison Keenan to the Breast Cancer Care Fashion Show event at The Grosvenor House in Park Lane. As always it was a fantastic event with the stars being the fashion models who had all been or were still affected by Breast Cancer. They were just amazing and so inspiring. They were cheered and encouraged every step of the way by an adoring crowd and there were not many dry eyes in the house.
Ali made a splendid job of encouraging the throng to join us both, along with Craig and Claudia, next Thursday for our 10th live Breast Cancer Care broadcast – which we hope with your help will be the best so far.
Alison and I were joined at the dinner table by well known on-air guests including Simon Wilson, Leighton Denny, Charlie Lipson, Andrew Bagley, Alexis Murdoch, as well as Directors from Diet Chef, Kipling Bags, and other fabulous QVC brands.
Before the event started Alison and I met the very lovely Singer Songwriter Beverley Craven, who later sang her best known hits to a very appreciable audience. Beverley came over to Alison and I to show us some of her beautiful jewellery that she had bought from QVC – we were both honoured that she should take the trouble to do this and I just had to have a photo taken with her (above left) – I think you’ll agree she looks stunning.
You’re probably wondering who the starlet in the 2nd photo is (above right) – well believe it or not it’s Karen, one of QVC’s camera operators. She is a great character and jewellery fans will have heard me pull her leg on numerous occasions.
The event never fails to make me realise how important organisations like Breast Cancer Care are to us all and I for one will be working very hard to convince all our viewers to dig deep and support this worthy cause on Thursday night between 7 and 10pm. Let’s make a date!
