Will gets a proposal LIVE on air!

Will GowingWOW... What an amazing Thursday that was!!

My partner of nearly ten years - Steven - proposed to me live on QVC and I couldn't be happier. 

To give you a bit of background, I was never supposed to be on air at 4pm, I received a voicemail from my boss, Mike, asking me to call him. Well, obviously I was worried, what have I done wrong? 

Mike told me... "Alison Young would really like you to be part of her last show of 2013 - Benefit Cosmetics". Little did I know what was in store!!

I've known Ali since before meeting Steve, so I'm elated she was part of this chapter in my life. Equally I have known the QVC family for that long too and they have now given me the best gift ever.

QVC was my first job in TV, I worked for the company for just over five years before leaving and spreading my wings elsewhere, which they were very happy to let me do. I can say in all honesty that I have never worked with a better team, I truly mean that, the majority of my best friends have a connection with QVC. 

Anyway, I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of YOU, the QVC viewers, it probably sounds very cheesey but I couldn't be happier working here and the messages of good will you have posted to Steve and I are incredible!!

I won't keep yapping on, I just want to finish by saying that 2013 has been such a tough year for the QVC family, as I'm sure many of you well know. We've lost far too many friends and I'll be raising a glass to all of them on Christmas Day, as well as thinking of their families. 

Here's to 2014! 

Love,

Will x

hi Will,
congratulations! I've just seen the video and had to wipe my eyes, it was so lovely. You are incredibly professional and kept going through all of the lead-up - I wish you and Steven all the very best to you and wish you a continued happiness and contentment together. Also, I am so glad you love it at QVC - you and Ali have a great rapport, now I know why. I first heard you on the radio with Steve Allen on LBC a few years ago and I remember being very impressed. You also did the weather on t.v. and you came across as very calm whatever the forecast!
You take care and wishing you both a very Happy Christmas,
Beth XXX.

That lroposal was so beautiful! I rewound and watched it again and saved it to show some friends who came over later. We all agree it was the sweetest most romantic proposals we had seen.

Hope you have a fabulous Christmas and New Year. Much love to you and yours and I raise a glass to those loved and lost too soon, xxxxxxx
