A catch-up during this crazy time!


Dale and Will I.TIt's me again – but just a short blog this week that I hope finds you all as well as can be expected!

The Q is a whirlwind at the moment with amazing shows and gifting ideas everywhere you look. Obviously, you see what we get up to on air but the amount of work that takes place behind the scenes has quadrupled in recent years, what with new exciting channels, our interactive website, customer events and much more.

I'm not just talking about broadcasting – our buyers, planners and bosses are working flat out to make this, our 20th year, the best ever on QVC UK and I hope you've been enjoying the fruits of our labours so far…

But there's still lots more to come – for example this week's Saturday Night Gifts with Dale! Listen to (OK, read) this!

For music lovers we have the singing talents of "The Voice" Russell Watson live in the studio singing from his new album 'Only One Man'!

Celine DionWe have another part of my interview with the amazing Céline Dion chatting about her new album 'Loved Me Back To Life'! 

For music, West End, Torchwood and Arrow fans we have the effervescent John Barrowman with a great priced 'HIM' gift for men.

For dance lovers we have the world famous Flavia Cacace and Vincent Simone dancing live in the studio with their fab 'School of Dance' DVD.

For foodies we have Andi Peters joining in the fun with Gower Cottage Brownies, followed by the Decleor TSV, Rosa Fabulosa gifts, and Clogau gold!!

Record the 'other' stuff on TV that night and join us live at 8pm for what will surely be a lively two hours of entertainment and gift ideas. Oh yes and Will I.T and myself (looking suave above) will be there! 

There's a lot of little bugs going around at the moment and as I started to write this I was feeling a little under the weather but now I feel ENERGISED!

Bugs permitting, I'll be on air this week with Nikki Gerwirtz and Lola Rose jewellery, Kim Mendleson and her Kim & Co Anniversary shows and Nour fashion jewellery!

Andi's Kitchen, with Andi Peters and myself, continues each Monday at 7pm and it'll be myself presenting Saturday Night Gifts also on the 16th!

Dale and Charlie excited!BREAKING NEWS

Charlie and I are presenting a three-hour Christmas Diamond Spectacular on 9th December starting at 4pm – see our reaction to the news! 

Until next week,

Dale x

    Hi Dale
    I’m eally looking forward to Saturday and seeing both John Barrowman and Russell Watson on your show, but particularly Russell. His album is “Only One Man”, by the way.
    Can I please clarify what time your programme will air?
    You’ve said on Twitter and here ‘8pm’ but the programme schedule shows 9pm-11pm. I’m not a regular QVC-er, I admit, so forgive me for asking but I want to get the right story out to Russell’s fans and have as many ‘tune in’ as possible. We’re all hoping that any CDs ordered via QVC will be signed by Russell as he arranged to do when he released his “Return Of The Voice” DVD on QVC.
    All the best for a great show.
    Oh, if you get the chance, please ask John if there’s any chance that his character in Arrow will return. He played the most villainous villain!
