    I think you should have had a competition , some of the presenters have changed so much !!! Dale is just so different – I think he is so much better now – like a fine wine he has improved with age, whereas Julia hasn’t changed or aged in the slightest !!

    Dale’s is the best – he looks like a cocky little wide boy! I would have fancied him when I was 17!!

    I think Craig Rowe looks adorable at seveenteen and cuddly now love you Craig, you have been a great addition to the presenters, I am so glad the QVC customers voted for you. Keep up the good work of informing me about the produts and making me laugh with your enthusiastic, infectious presenting especially when you do a kitchen show and you keep eating the food I feel like I am also eating it with you.

    You all looked naughty and nice then, but you all have aged well but still have a really wicked sense of humour which I love.
    Best wishes for 17 year and long may you reign!

    These photos had me in stitches,in a good way i hasten to add, Craig Rowe looked so handsome when he was 17, Dale looked like a prankster back then, which i feel he’s traded in, for digging small holes for himself, when he’s presenting on air, which i love, he’s naturally funny. Glen Campbell showed even at 17, he was destined to do something in fashion. Pippa looks so different when she was younger, she has made a big change, she always look fab, and like Dale she is quite witty. They all looked great back then, and have gotten even better with age. Happy birthday QVC, keep up the good work.
