Alfie the spaniel’s success story, celebs galore, Christmas shopping, and Tracy Bloom comp



Debbie and OuidaThis week –
– Behind the scenes & Getting Festive for my 10th QVC Xmas

– I Grew Up In Merton – did you? Morden Odeon circa 1970 – where my love of cinema began

– Author of best-seller ‘No one Has Sex on a Tuesday’ – interview and comp with Tracy Bloom

– Sneaky peeks galore!

– And Alfie the spaniel from Banstead is rescued by facebook friends

First – what a fab selection of garments I was tempted with from our lovely guest Ouida from Ronnie Nicole this week – here she is with me in this week’s Top Pic. This dress is the one you may have seen Claire Sutton wearing in the QVC Style channel promo!

I loved so many of the other items – you’ll see them on me over the next few months on air no doubt! (Also for those who ask – the latest top I’ve been wearing on air (Thurs 24th/ Sat 26th) – sequined and soft and gorgeous – is by my lovely pal Antthony – see below in QVC section – TSV this Sunday night!)
And … STOP PRESS! … standby for news of my special guest in Saturday Night Gifts this week – none other than Paul Potts himself! (See ‘Watch’ below).

MY TENTH QVC XMAS! – what’s yours?
Debbie's family at ChristmasWell, the extended guarantee has kicked in (any item that’s a gift opened on xmas day, has the usual 30 day try out period extended from then till 25th January!) and Xmas trees come and go in the studios and it signifies it’s time to begin the countdown! For us anyway. When do you start?

As you may guess, I love this time of year, and always loved family Christmasses, as the eldest of five kids growing up in Merton. See below for some childhood memories if you did too!

But this year it’ll be my tenth (I think!) at QVC. Six years originally, 1994-99, and the rest since I returned. Fitting then, that I helped Francesca celebrate the 10th anni of beautiful Murano Gold on Thursday! Have you ever been at a job ten years or more? Was it one you loved? Leave me a comment at the bottom if so and tell me all about why you stayed so long!

Coincidentally, this week several of my colleagues set off for the ‘ten years continuous service’ dinner and award ceremony they do for dedicated staffers, but I wasn’t invited – felt like Cinderella at the ball! Or rather, not at the ball, to be precise! Lol. Not a problem, since it’s my own fault for going away in the first place, since it has to be continuous service.

But fellow presenter Catherine looked lovely as she set off for the plush dinner with all the other ‘ten year gang’ – you may have read about other presenters attending theirs in the past – it happens at five and fifteen and now twenty years too! Anyway, read Catherine’s blog to find out more once she’s posted it! And I am marking the occasion of my 10th xmas at QVC by adding several little features to do with yuletide!


Xmas Grotto of Upcoming QVC Gift Ideas
Xmas layoutFirstly, I went in on Tuesday to explore the little ‘grotto’ type display the lovely buyers set up in our meeting area (where viewers sometimes are taken for presentations etc – have you ever been?) called The Spectrum.

So many lovely treats to come, and some that have already been on air – what can you spot in the pic above, of the beauty table?!



These are some of my faves – a mini version of my fave Ego hairdryer gift pack, plus some cosy looking Emu Australia slippers!

Ego christmas hair

Christmas feet










For regulars who have asked to see more of the behind the scenes footage shot at our xmas promo filming day, here’s a link – to see Will’s fab little montage of what I got up to this year – well some of it!

And watch out for some of those new promos which will gradually be released in the run up to xmas – featuring other antics from that day – see which celebs you can spot in them!

My Own Xmas Shopping Begins!
25 pressiesOk so who’s started theirs already?! I was totally chuffed with myself ‘cos this is my first batch of pressies – and I’ve killed about 25 ‘birds’ with one ‘hipstreet-shaped-stone’! (The recent TSV – a fab mobile charger with torch built in.) I have 15 nieces and nephews, what can I say!

Plus I got a few extras for birthdays and anniversaries too – I think I took ‘buy more save more’ literally! I saved a total of £80 and 20 half price P&P’s! haha! So for anyone who ever doubts me when I say ‘I bought one of these’ – er… I really do!

Soooo many more pressies still to get though – but at least these will be wrapped nice and early! Whilst watching xmassy films! What’s your own schedule? I love seeing all the pressies under the tree.


Celebs Galore!
Paul Potts - The Greatest HitsThere are plenty of gift ideas of course in our weekly Saturday Night Extravaganza of Gifts , and it’s me this week – (Dale and I take turns) – plus Flavia and Vincent teaching me to dance (item number 400532) – yes really! Lol!

Plus – oh joy! Paul Potts himself will be joining me and singing live in the studio – as we mark the release of his biopic at the big screen – One Chance – see this week’s film review in ‘Watch’ below! And selling his cd (item number 504578)– can’t wait to meet him – and the film with James Corden is fab!

Celine Dion - 504583And as you’ll know if you saw Dale’s show last week, we are also taking advanced orders now on the albums for none other than international megastar Celine Dion!

 ‘Loved Me Back to Life’ is free P&P and delivery/charging date is the release date 11th November (two choices, items 504583 and 504584) the regular and the deluxe CD’s. And what a fab taster of the interview with Dale, who had the honour and privilege, he says, of meeting Celine when he jetted out to Florida two weeks ago.

She was lovely, and he was ever so slightly star struck, it seems! Hehe! I'll have the short interview soon, which went out in Dale’s show last week if you missed it, but for now here is some footage of Celine in the studio! Talk about star studded Saturday nights! Whoop!


Andrea McLean, Marie Francois Wolff, Lee HolbeinP.S. – also on this week’s show, Lee Hohbein will be answering some of your burning hi-tech questions. I love it when Lee’s on ‘cos he’s so knowledgeable! And for his fans, here’s a fab piccie of him in the phone room on BCC night with the lovely Andrea McLean and our own Kipling guest Marie Francoise Wolff too!


So there you go! A lovely Christmassy round up of some fun events!



Still to come – double-blooper… What’s the Yankee TSV Sunday?… Tracy Bloom bestselling author comp… and raising funds for Pirate’s poorly leg…



Odeon circa 1970Did you? I’ve been reminiscing big time courtesy of a fab little facebook group called just that. My high school (1975-80), Willows, is now a housing estate in Central Road, Morden; Disc records where I bought my first 45rpm record, Hey Girl Don’t Bother Me by the Tams, in 1970 is now a café or some such, and after much discussion about the old cinema, someone posted this pic for me – lovely! It even had the film I saw – three times – on the billboard – Jungle Book!

Must have been about 1970 then. The site of the old Odeon in Morden town centre opposite the station is now a Lidl or some such. Boo! Does anyone else have any pics of the area?

The Amazing Mr BlundenBut I do believe my love of cinema began back then. We had such wonderful outings to the cinema – including to see The Amazing Mr Blunden. Inspired, I ordered the DVD from Amazon to watch with my brother’s kids Lara, 7, and Izzy, 5, and I just hope they enjoy the magic of the ‘even ghosts need help’ byline – here’s the promo – if you’re interested. If you have young kids to entertain I heartily recommend this film, featuring a stellar performance from Diana Dors in her older years!

How wonderful that you can access such niche products so easily nowadays. The internet is a wonderful thing – as proved by up to 15000 wonderful things on!





Without the internet, how could I show you these bloopers?! It’s a ‘selfie’ this week – partly inspired by Alison Young’s reaction afterwards. Here is ‘disappearing model and teetering presenter’! Ooer!



RiWiSi – READ IT WRITE IT SELL IT – My Weekly Look at All Things Book!

Tracy BloomOMG am I excited about this week’s feature – since Tracy Bloom herself has agreed to be author of the week! With a fab competition to win her first two ground-breaking novels, here’s a must-read chat with the writer who has a novel approach to becoming a best-seller! Here’s a taster, the rest is on my own website – link below.

Tracy Bloom started writing when she moved temporarily to the USA for her husband's job, leaving behind a dream career shopping for rollercoasters for the UK's leading theme parks. She enrolled in a Creative Writing evening class in Connecticut and began work on her romantic comedy, NO-ONE EVER HAS SEX ON A TUESDAY, writing mostly during her son's afternoon nap.

She acquired an agent who secured several foreign rights deals but never managed to get a deal with a major publisher in the UK. Returning back to live in England, Tracy decided the time was right to try self-publishing. After much research, including attending the 2012 Writers and Artists Self- Publishing in The Digital Age conference, her novel was released on Amazon via the White Glove programme in April 2013.

During June, it achieved #1 Best Selling e-book status for three weeks, gaining over a thousand reviews. Tracy has since released her second book, SINGLE WOMAN SEEKS REVENGE, which so far has achieved the #2 ranking.


No one ever has sex on a Tuesday‘Noone Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday’ is this week’s Book of the Week.

 “Never has a one-night stand led to such chaos! Childhood sweethearts Matthew and Katy agree they must never see each other again after they end up in bed together following a school re-union. So all is forgotten… until eight months later…”

Fab reviews and still riding high at the top of the charts, Tracy has been asked to talk at this year’s Writers and Artists Self-Publishing conference on November 2nd in central London. (more info below)




Here’s a snippet of the interview I did with Tracey.
Q. What’s the White Glove programme on Amazon?
A – Only for writers with agents, you’re then eligible for a special service, involving greater promotion for your titles – the idea being that having an agent is naturally a filter for good writing! This is exclusive to agents and provides support to self-published authors in the form of preparing manuscripts ready for publication and the possibility of inclusion in Kindle promotions.

 Q.How did PR coverage and social media help?
A. – At some point during my journey I’d read a book proclaiming social media was not essential for the successful self-publisher. Indeed Joanna Penn had said at the conference that, despite her love of Twitter, it is only to be embarked on if you take it to heart and enjoy it. With this in mind I set about forming my marketing plan which included plenty of local marketing, targeting of book bloggers and a toe in the water of social media since, prior to February, I had no presence on Twitter or Facebook, nor did I have my own website.

I also had my sights set on a national PR campaign off the back of running a survey that would indeed prove that Tuesday was the least popular day of the week to have sex! The marketing was painstaking and time-consuming as I tailored everything individually to whoever I was trying to convince to talk about my book.

As boring as it was at times, it worked. Four local papers covered my story, I appeared on four radio stations, my book was reviewed by some of the best book blogging website for my genre and my survey got me in The Sun, The Star and several major websites.

That helped Tracy's sales, and slowly the book climbed from being in the 6000’s (where my Hawaiian Affair is at the moment, having reached around 900 highest in the summer) in the charts, to in the top 1000, to in the magical top 100, and then to the heady heights of the top ten – Tracy said she cried when it hit number one and the success that followed has been a surprise and a delight.

Find out what it felt like to achieve that dream by clicking throught the full interview on my website – to read more go to my website, the ‘Read It Write It Sell it –Go Large!’ page. 

That’s also where you’ll find out all about the November 2nd Self-Publishing one day seminar in London!

– Poggy play date! OMG how funny it was when little Baloo came to stay last week! My daughter’s spaniel is only 2 and she runs rings round mine – they all had to go for a long lie down after! Love my ‘grandpog’! hehe! 


Pirate on sofa Raising Funds for Pirate’s Poorly Leg Op – OMG how sad lovely little Pirate lost his paw accidentally at birth and now manages with just one back leg. Regulars will know I’ve been giving you updates each week, well it’s almost decision time about the op how much of his little stump to remove to help him balance and walk better.


But they do need to raise funds – about another £500 apparently – having already got £300 from the bracelets I featured on here last week. Anyone wanting to donate, you can do so via paypal using email


Pirate looking through the bannistersPirate update – Yvette – Pirate’s foster mum, tells me – “He has learnt to groom himself over the last week and spends ages doing it! So cute to watch. We went to the vet yesterday and he has picked up so much weight!

He was also much nicer to the vet this time haha – not nearly as much hissing as last time. We will be going back to the vet in December to check his weight and health and will decide on a date for his operation. Still have to raise lots of funds!”

More next week – meanwhile, Follow him on Facebook!

AlfieAlfie’s saved by kind-hearted Facebookers. We see a lot of fund raising appeals online and you never know if they’re genuine do you? Or hear the outcomes?

Well, a pal told me about a little spaniel called Alfie who’s owner Tony (my pal Suzanne’s ex boss) had to appeal for help via Facebook to raise £4500 for a doggy pacemaker – otherwise poor Alfie was so exhausted he would be in danger of dying.

Well I’m thrilled to announce, having donated a little contribution and forwarded it on, knowing it was genuine, that within just a week or so, the full amount was raised and lovely Alfie from Banstead in Surrey had his op a few days later. He’s now well on the way to making a speedy recovery and Tony would like to thank everyone from the bottom of his – and Alfie’s heart. Full story go here! Warm’s your cockles doesn’t it!

Insole Insoles – saw these – it made me smile… Yes, they’re insoles. For very high shoes… Honest…

P.S. -Clocks go back – spring forward, fall back, so this Saturday night the clocks go back an hour at 2am and give us an extra sixty minutes of snoozing on Sunday! Yay!



WATCH – ‘One Chance’ – the Paul Potts life story.
Well, how could I possibly resist making this new biopic my film of the week, since Paul Potts himself is my guest on Saturday Night Gifts (8-10pm Saturday 26th) and we’ll be touching upon the film in my interview.

Starring James Corden, Julie Walters, ‘One Chance’ tells Potts’s story up to that moment in 2007 when the mobile phone salesman stunned Britain’s Got Talent judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan with the power, clarity and beauty of his voice.

It tells one tale of wounded pride, as the great Pavarotti and Potts’s own father rubbished his dream of becoming an opera singer, and another of wounded body parts as accident probne, bully-prone Potts lurches from one crisis to another but triumphs in the end. As we know! One of those where you know the end, you just don’t know how he got there in the first place!

It’s always great to see the background to such an unlikely success story – and similar to SuBo, who is back on QVC again shortly, Paul Potts’ first steps onto the stage on that fated night raises titters, not hopes. But that only means the all important moment of truth is even more spine-tingling and goosebump raising when it happens! I LOVE so many of this cast it had to be my film of the week – and it’s likely to get a high mark – I’m hoping! 


HERE IT IS! 'One Chance' Review

I LOVE so many of this cast it had to be my film of the week – and it’s very enjoyable indeed. Yes, we know the ending, but that's not the point – 'it's all about his journey' – as the hackneyed reality tv saying goes. And it's a funny film too – but I do wonder how factual the roller coaster is.

Loved the cameo performances and the real footage from Britain's Got Talent interwoven with the acting. BUT the main reason it's worth going is James Corden – he's excellent. The right amount of pathos, comic turns not over-egged, and enough emotional bite to get me a bit teary at the end. Liked it – a lot!

As with all biopics, knowing the ending means as a film it's not quite so gripping as some, but a very healthy 7.75 out of ten nonetheless. Do go see it if you like Paul Potts – or James Corden – or BGT for that matter!

    Hi Debs,
    I’d like to be in the draw for the books please. They look interesting. I would have bought them, but may have other reading to do in the next few weeks! Wonder whose book?
    Loved the Celine Dion clip – isn’t her voice amazing?! I will have to get her album!
    What an interesting blog – but wouldn’t expect anything less from you! I love reading it every week, and although I may not leave a comment each week, I am always catching up with your news and articles.

    Hi Can’t believe you used to live in Merton, wonder how many times we all passed each other, you know like ships that pass in the night and all that.
    Yeah prob need that extra hour, or it’ll just be an extra hour to stay up longer!
    That Leighton Denny set looks too tempting, think I will have to resist the urge on the basis of that blue alone. The Amazing Mr Blunden was a good film, they don’t make them like that anymore.
    Tamie would like to be entered in the giveaway. x

    Good heavens – that was a fun-filled and jam-packed blog!
    Sorry you missed out on the 10 continuous years celebration! Your time will come babe!
    Loved the blooper in your wobbly heels, but I still love those shoes! I also love the honeymoon pics – Brad and his bride will surely have a happy married life together!
    As for Christmas, there is far too much to do before then! It was the dog’s birthday at the start of the month, then hubby’s birthday and the cat’s birthday this week! Half term this coming week. Halloween, bonfire night, best friend’s birthday at the end of November. Following that, OU pals weekend shindig then my daughter’s 14th birthday on 3rd December! Then and only then can I do Christmas! We put the tree and other decorations up the day after my daughter’s birthday. My birthday is on Christmas Day, so a busy time ahead!
    I like the look of that Antthony top as well as the Yankee Candles!
    Thanks for another great blog! I’ll watch QVC on Saturday night and really look forward to having fun checking out the items on offer! See you then!

    Hi Debbie ,
    I love to read your blogs, you must put in a lot of work. I have 4 children so I have started the Christmas shopping. Qvc is a great help with some fabulous kits. I bought 2 of the philosophy Tsv this week, most probably will get 3 of the Yankee candle Tsv tomorrow, then roll on to the Elemis (can’t say how many of them I want) but my mum, sister & friend love love love Elemis. Will try and book tv for Sat night gifts as I know we will be given quality entertainment!
    Best wishes
    Tracy xx

    Hi Debbie
    I have been a long time QVC viewer so I was there when you completed your first stint at QVC and now here you are about to celebrate your 10th QVC Christmas……congratulations!!
    As for me,well I celebrated my 30th anniversary in September working for the same company. There have been company name changes along the way and much has changed in the way that we do things and technology has played a massive part in the way the company has moved in the last 30 years, but crucially it was how we as employees were looked after in the early days that has seen many us remain loyal despite the changes in the working environment.
    I am fortunate to work with some lovely people and I cannot imagine working anywhere else at this stage in my life!!
    Looking forward to watching Saturday Night Gifts tonight!!
    Can i cheekly ask when the Elemis Men’s show will be on? Keeley mentioned it was going to happen earlier this year and i want to make sure i don’t miss it. I love the Revitalize Me Shower Gel and would love to see them available as a Duo for us guys!!
    There, i have asked, so i shall wait and see!!

    hi hon!
    So glad you liked the paul potts stuff – and it was a fab film, wasn’t it? WHat a stellar cast!
    made me really want to go see – i usually see Julie Walters films, so with Mackenzie Crook also in it, I was happy to see James Corden as Paul – glad i did, he was great.
    thanks for commenting!
    come back again!
