The best sleep ever!


What?!? Another blog from the Fox within days! Fret not dear reader – it’s just that I’ve been so moved to tell you about the brilliant Today’s Special Value offer that’s on this Thursday (29th)  that I’m launching at midnight on Wednesday.

It’s a brilliant mattress topper from Magniflex the family owned Premium Italian bedding company based in the beautiful, Tuscany countryside with over 50 years experience.

I know it’s just not like me to get too excited about such things but I’ve got to say “I love this” !

Our TSV features three different zones which provide support to the shoulders, lumber and legs: plus additional features of anti-dust mite, anti-bacterial and anti-mould construction.

I was asked to try out a sample last week – which as it turned out, couldn’t have come at a better time. As you may know, last week I picked up this year’s winter virus (as nearly everyone else has) resulting in some pretty poor quality sleep for quite a few days.

The specially designed mattress topper simply lies on top of your existing mattress and is held in place by elasticated corner straps and simply put your fitted sheet over it, as normal. It totally transformed our mattress (which wasn’t that old),  it also added a luxury layer of around 4cm of high quality memory foam which felt like a new memory foam mattress and at a fraction of the cost.

It’s remarkable how different (in a good way) my mattress felt. I’ve often been asked on-air “how much would you pay for a good nights sleep, when you’ve not had one for a while?”

Topper close-upI would encourage anyone who is finding it difficult to get off to sleep or simply wants to add a thick layer of luxurious comfort and support to give it a try. Remember, it will be on offer at fabulous TSV prices, available in 2 easy pays instalments and if it doesn’t work for you – you can return it to QVC !

Join Stefano and myself at midnight this Wedsnesday (into Thursday) to see for yourself.

As you can tell I’m rather impressed. The pictures above show it on a Magniflex mattress but it will fit many, if not all other UK sized mattresses.




We had another Birthday weekend at home, this time it was the turn of my wife, Tracey and although she is impossible to buy for or surprise, she had a lovely couple of days with the family.

JoggersI thought I’d share with you a photo (100% genuine) of a pair of jogging bottoms, Tracey, washed for the 1st time for Jack – they were only cheap for knocking around the house, but we were prepared for what came out of a cool wash! I have blocked out the label to protect the retailer concerned – as it’s quite unbelievable!

Anyway I won’t keep you any longer – more puppy pics next time !

Stay safe and warm
