I hope all’s well with everyone as we approach the ‘Holiday Season’ as they say in the States – and I hope you’ve been enjoying our Gifting shows, particularly Saturday Night Gifts with Debbie or yours truly!
The show takes a huge amount of effort from many departments at The Q, particularly Broadcasting. Mainly because it’s such a complex live show to produce.
For me every show is memorable for one reason or another, but last week I had a particularly star-studded guest list – how’s this for a green room?!
We had the multi-talented John Barrowman, with his men’s skincare range HIM; singing star Russell ‘the voice’ Watson, singing two moving songs live from his new album ‘Only One Man‘; Andi Peters; Kate Jenkins with Gower Cottage Brownies; and the wonderful dancing talents of Flavia Cacace and Vincent Simone .
We also managed a five minute excerpt from my interview with Singing Superstar Céline Dion. Click here to watch both parts of the interview.
This weekend there’s some Biiiiiggg Brands on offer at The Q – on Saturday we have the fabulous Apple iPad Mini 16GB – Today’s Special Value which has some great added value, (including a choice of colour covers). Oh, and there’s also 4 Easy Pays!!

Also, on this week’s Saturday Night Gifts, we will be giving you the opportunity of securing this year’s Elemis Christmas TSV three hours before its official launch at midnight!!
I know many thousands of you look forward to the Elemis Christmas TSV each year as it is the perfect “What Do I Buy Them?” solution at an incredible price.
This isn’t just a teaser of what’s to come but an OPPORTUNITY to order – so, as I often say, “fill yer boots” in Saturday Night Gifts!!
Then later on Monday, at 7pm, you can join Andi Peters and I for the penultimate show of the Andi’s Kitchen series. There’s a healthy mix of facts and banter (not necessarily in that order) and we feature many of the great items and foods from QVC’s wonderful selection.
This week we’ve got Kate Gower (she just keeps coming back to the show!) and TV chef Phil Vickery, with his book ‘Pork’, joining Andi and I. It’s a fascinating insight into one of the country’s favourite meats with some amazing recipes.
I usually like to mention in my blog, a few things that have happened to me off air as well but, to be honest, apart from watching my son Jack play rugby on Sunday and picking up my Ali from dancing, I’ve been pretty much absorbed by the goings on at The Q!
Oh, Toby ripped another claw today, his claws have been pretty good recently but a mix of fallen acorns and pine cones did the damage – he’ll be fine with a bit of TLC (which he gets in bucket loads) – I’ve been asked for more Toby pictures, so I’ll make sure I include one next week.
This week’s “just for fun” photo competition is self explanatory – a shot taken by Sarah from our Interactive dept during this week’s Andi’s Kitchen – simply enter any suggestions in the comments section below – as always keep it clean
If you are on TWITTER follow me @dalefranklinTV and we can discuss more.
‘Til Next week, stay safe and warm and smiling !
