Dale Franklin

Coming from a showbiz family, it may be a surprise that Dale started out as a property consultant. However, it wasn’t long before he discovered his real love when he started interviewing celebs for local radio, working at the National Film & Television School and then joined QVC as a presenter in 1998.

Out of hours, Dale enjoys a hectic and happy home-life – he’s Dad to boy and girl twins, and Toby and Ellie, the Beardies who’re often featured on this blog.
