It seems that there is so much to celebrate right now – the Jubilee, the Olympics, the good weather, my birthday in a few weeks, and last but by no means least QVC's departure from our Battersea home to our new studios in Chiswick. With just over a week to go before the big move, everyone is getting very excited.
I've been to visit the new place a few times over recent weeks as we have being doing some show rehearsals there so that presenters, guests, directors, producers et al can get a feel for the space and see what it is going to be like to work in, and believe me they are looking good!
For any of you who have ever visited our studios at Battersea you will know that they were not purpose built for us. Whilst they are great studios in an incredible, not to mention iconic, building, I know there will be a few female presenters who will be glad they never have to run, in heels, from a studio on the first floor during a live show, down marble stairs and across a marble foyer to get to another studio on the ground floor.
The new studios at Chiswick have been purpose built and designed with all of our working conditions in mind, and everything is shiny and new which always makes everything feel so much more special (just like when I get my QVC goodies fresh out of their wrappers when they arrive at my house).
The first show to air from Chiswick will be The Morning Show with myself and Kathy on Thursday 7th June at 9am, so please tune in. Kathy and I would love to have your company as we launch our brand new studios, like proud parents showing off our baby. So come and join in the celebrations!
We can't promise the Queen on a barge or any of that pomp and ceremony but we can promise you a fun morning with some great guests joining us. I look forward to having you at our celebrations as we broadcast live form our new studios for the very first time.
