Pipa Gordon behind the scenes

Behind the Scenes (Part One)


I know how much you all love watching the shows on QVC so I thought I’d do a few behind the scenes shots for you this month as there is so much that goes on in preparation for all the live and non-live shows that we do.

I may have to spread it across a few months to give you a broad taster but here’s a few taken from  last weekend… Pic 1

The Hub … this is where the floor managers are situated right at the entrance to Studio A. Wendy and Ash do pretty much smile like this all the time too which is a joy when things get quite hectic which of course they are bound to do when you’re making 16 hours of live TV every day! Without the amazing floor staff we would have no products to take on air, no studios set up, no guests in the right places and pretty much QVC would come to a grinding halt. Not only are they fabulous at what they do, they are all wonderful human beings too!

Talking of wonderful human beings, here’s some of our guests busily preparing for their shows. This is Beverley Cressman and Anne Dorrington preparing their products and demonstrations for the following hour …they didn’t know I was taking pictures of them hard at work! …it is all very smooth (usually) once we get on air, but there’s so much that goes on ahead of each show.

My Dad always used to say to me as I left for school “work hard and play hard” and that’s exactly what we do… it looks like Aidan (backstage) and Nick (cameras) “borrowed” my ipad for this selfie #nutters


Then of course we have our models, on this particular day, they weren’t all human either! This is Chloe’s gorgeous dog (above) getting ready to model his Carole Hochman doggy coat… he’s so scrumptious!!

And whilst that’s just the tiniest snippet of behind the scenes, (Links of London are a great Christmas pressie idea btw!) I’ll do more another day… but without our wonderful teams, I could never do the job I do… smiling all the way thanks to everyone else!
