    Hi Anthony, I watched your last morning show whilst ironing my “Northern Nights”! Have been fortunate enough to cruise the “windies” with “N.C.L” You would kick yourself if you didn’t take this job, enjoy, and the very best of luck to you.

    I see you are leaving QVC and have a few things for sale. What are you doing with the pink fuchsia shirt you wore on air and if it is for sale how much do you want for it? I can go to a quid plus 50p p and p. Not sorry to see you go because you are so talented and especially with people and advising and teaching. We all go i different directions. I hope you will give your passengers as much information before you buy as you do on QVC especially with presentations and you will do those on board i am sure. I wish you were on national TV personally so I hope to hear about what you are up to and don’t completely disappear but I know you like travelling. Are you the next Jane MacDonald!!!!!!!!!TRY to resist Loose Women!. God Help us. Loose men – that is up to you! Remember the frozen rat lady with Silicone Malcolm and the man who made a template for his fried eggs and Cooks Essentials from an old pineapple ring can and both people were totally genuine and you didn’t patronise or anything to the point of not trying to sell them item 989302938834 fried egg shaper – you just said what a brilliant idea and this was AND at midnight!!!!!!! Maybe you could guest on QVC if you come back to shore or do a guest bit from qvc America or have a holiday show just for a bit of pocket money.

    Hi, Anthony – What a lovely send of they gave you. My Mum and I love your shows and will miss you as a presenter. I bet you felt at a bit of a loss when you left the studios for the last time. Maybe you will discover some interesting products whilst you are doing your new job and feel the need to return as a guest and to demo them. Wishing you a wonderful new career, we hope it is all you dream of – if by any tiny chance you regret your choice, we hope QVC would welcome you back with open arms as I know all the viewers would be delighted to see you back on screen in teh future. Best wishes Tracey & Kathy

    What a shame Anthony has left QVC, he is by far one of the better presenters but life moves on for us all. Best of luck for the future.

    Heard this on Catherine’s early show on Saturday and was so disappointed. You were such a whizz on the technology shows – who will do them now?! Have a fun time, and hopefully see you on our screen again soon x

    Hi Anthony,
    I really hope QVC gets these last few messages to you before you leave, as I do think you will spend many a night, on your stateroom balcony, reading them and remembering the good times you’ve had at QVC. Firstly may I say ‘Congratulations’ on bagging yourself a job in one of the most stunning places ever!!! I have been a QVC customer for over fifteen years and although I am really happy for you, I was so deflated when I heard of your news, which was slightly selfish of me but you are my favourite presenter. It’s that cheeky sense of humour you have…and I’ll miss that greatly. Especially when you’re with ‘The Bibster’…no-one will ever toss the backing off of the 3d foam pads, as well as you do Anthony,…with such campness!!!…hahaha!!! Your sense of humour has cheered me up so many times over the years…(I’m disabled see and can’t get out much due to chronic nerve damage of the abdomen and groin)…so apart from my crafting/reading/internet, TV is a big part of my life…and so is QVC…I so look forward to watching the craft hours with Dawn,…especially when you were with her, you never failed in making me laugh,…(which having what I have, even laughing puts me in a lot of discomfort/pain!)…but hey,…I didn’t mind because you cheered me up!
    Although you will be sadly missed, you could no way turn down this fantastic opportunity. I have been on cruises around the Carribean, (with Royal Carribean), and I know that it’s going to be right up your street…Sun, sea, sand,…ladies…glistening blue waters, palm trees, heat,…ladies,…smiles, pampering, delicious food,…and ladies!!!…haha!
    I know for a fact, you’ll love it out there,…it’s a totally differant world…at least you won’t need any fake tan coz you’ll turn a lovely colour!!!
    Well, I suppose I’ll have to say ta-ra for now…and you never know what happens in the future, we might see you again on QVC. Good luck for whatever lies ahead for you, Anthony…and most importantly,…Stay safe and just simply…ENJOY!!!
    Vicki Race
