All systems go, plus festive treats and shows!


I hope all’s as well as can be.

It’s been an interesting week at home – having returned to work myself, I handed the sick baton over to my wife Tracey, who after a spell in hospital, discovered she had unfortunately contracted shingles – I’m sure anyone who has also suffered with it, will know it’s really not nice – but she’s slowly improving and remains in good spirits.

Toby is now doing really well after another op on his poorly paw! It’s been a slow but gradual recovery and he’s now just wearing a protective sock – quite literally a toddler’s sock from our local supermarket. He’s now walking off the lead and moving better very day, which his best pal Ellie seems very pleased to take full advantage of.

Mardles Thunderbirds stickers

Back at the Q – it’s all systems go to help you plan your Christmas, whether it’s a treat for yourself, a loved one or your home: there’s something for everyone on offer. I presented the brilliant Thunderbirds Mardles sticker set with James Murden on Wednesday – this virtual reality sticker set is a must for any Thunderbirds fan, like both myself and my son – all you need is a smart phone or tablet using the Apple (iOS), Android or Amazon operating systems and download the free app, having first bought the sticker pack with us at QVC.

Samsung TV

At midnight on Saturday, I’ll be back with James and a fabulous Samsung 4K Smart Curved HDR UHD TV – perfect for enjoying the Christmas blockbuster movies and your favourite Christmas TV specials. The 49′ ultra HD curved screen offers exceptional picture quality at a brilliant Today’s Special Value price, plus four Easy Pay installments!

Diamonique stud and leverback earrings

Speaking of brilliant, at midnight on Sunday I’ll be presenting a Diamonique Today’s Special Value offer with the lovely Alison O’Reilly. It’s a two-piece set of 3 carat diamond equivalent weight earrings, with both a stud design and a leverback design in a choice of luxury polished finishes – complete with festive bauble packaging!

As we consider Diamonique to be the world’s finest simulated diamond with dazzling light refraction and clarity, it’s so often on the top of our customer’s Christmas wish list.

On Monday, Andi Peters and myself continue with Andi Peters’ Food Fest at 7pm. Our show features gourmet, award-winning brands, including Joe & Seph’s, The Original Cake Company, Meg Rivers and The Real Pie Company with Brett Hornby. I hope you can join me for some or all of my shows this weekend on QVC.

Until next time, stay healthy, sparkling and well-fed!

    Hi Dale,
    Thank you SO much for your lovely reply & so glad you are better! Hope your wife is well again soon too (shingles is not nice!) I love seeing the photos of your Toby & I am doing well with my recovery thanks! I finished my chemo in the summer but it takes quite a while to recover so I am frequently tuning in to QVC & enjoying my walks.
    I loved the return of your show with “Mr Top Guns” Andi & you must find it so difficult to control yourself with all that lovely food & the odd tipple.
    I have tried the Gower Cottage Brownies & they are the best & I have ordered the 3 tubes of Joe & Seph’s popcorn for Christmas( not sure if I will be able to part with any though)
    I never liked pies until I tried The Real Pie Company pies so hubby now enjoys “Pie day Friday” like Brett. I adore the crumbles & often find myself getting one out of the freezer when they are on air as they make me hungry watching the presentations lol.
    Have a great week Dale & keep making me laugh!
    Love Mandy xx
