We asked a few of our QVC stars about how they are preparing for Christmas Weekend and what it was like to appear in the film…

Ingrid from Operations

What was it like to be filmed for the Christmas promo video?

Very exciting and great to be part of what goes out on air to our customers. The teams in the Call Centre enjoyed watching the filming and will be looking for us when we hit the screens!!

How are our teams preparing for Christmas at QVC?

There's a lot of planning behind the scenes to ensure that we know how many people we need to be able to answer our customers calls. We've been recruiting talented people and training them ready for the build up to Christmas.

We've also been trying to help customers by taking their email addresses so we can confirm their orders via email. Oh, and finding time to squeeze in a bit of early Christmas shopping from QVC myself!!

Rebecca from Studio Set Design

What was it like to be filmed for the Christmas promo video?

A bit nerve-wracking to be honest as we're not used to being on the other side of the camera! But it was great fun and nice to be involved in a different way.

How are our teams preparing for Christmas at QVC?

In Display and Design we're responsible for the entire look of Christmas throughout our London studios, so that includes everything that will be seen on screen, and we've been busy designing everything for months now. 

It's strange to think that we've been making decorations, wrapping presents and decorating trees so early in the year – we've even nicknamed our workspace 'The Grotto'! 

It's really exciting to think that soon all of our hard work will be seen by the QVC viewers, and we really hope that they like what we've come up with this year.

Lee from Distribution

What was it like to be filmed for the Christmas promo video?

It was great to be asked to represent the company and it also gave us the opportunity to see behind the scenes on how things come together. We found it really interesting and a pleasure to be involved in!

How are your teams preparing for Christmas at QVC?

We're all working together as a team to ensure that we're on track to provide our customers with the best Christmas customer experience possible.

    Oh dear what a shame, QVC’s run up to christmas has lost its pazzaz, we see the same things from July and the presenters just do not seem to have any fun now, I remember when Jilly dressed up in a santa suit years ago and everyone laughed and had a good time, but certainly not now, so come on qvc bring back the laughter and fun!!!!
    Debbie Flint seems to be the only one who laughs … well done Debs
