On my very first airing, Mr Dale Franklin came in with a tray of mud and kindly trampled big muddy footprints all over my carpet – with no warning. Baptism of fire indeed!
But despite the pounding heart and admittedly slightly sweaty brow he very kindly led me through my first taste of live TV (and luckily I had a very good Vax carpet washer with me to clean up his mud!).
There has been truly heart stopping moments like when I knocked over a whole table full of cola, red wine, orange juice and milk all over electrical sockets and lights – I am very lucky QVC don't have a blooper reel because that is sure to have made it on there! And there have been some amazing moments, like my first TSV sell out with the Vax W90-RU-P Rapide Ultra Pre-Treatment carpet washer, which was so popular we bought it back again as a TSV later in the year.
I must admit I still get nervous every single time, but I think it is because I genuinely care about showing everyone how good Vax products really are (and maybe a little bit because I know at least one of my friends will be watching!).
There really is nowhere else like QVC to show people not only how to use our vacuum cleaners, carpet washers and steamers, but also how with every new product we launch we are trying to make household cleaning just that little bit easier. Listening to our customers is one of the most important things at Vax and as such we have a really exciting year coming up with products that are sure to help keep your home clean.
In fact I am back on QVC again on 15th February at 2pm and 9pm with Vax Solutions for vacuuming and cleaning your carpets and hard floors all around the home – I really do hope to see you there!
