BundleBerry trunks

A visit from Ant and Dec and Triple deals galore…


I hope all’s well.

Did you manage to catch Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway on ITV last Saturday featuring my pal Craig Rowe? The nation’s favourite duo pranked our glamorous QVC ambassador Amanda Holden, who had previously boasted that the boys would never catch her out. I must say it was brilliant TV and it’s only recently I’ve found out just how much effort went into making sure Amanda didn’t catch on. The levels of secrecy at Q Towers would have impressed The Secret Service itself. Well done to everyone involved, particularly Craig who did a brilliant job of ‘holden’ it all together.

Amanda launched her BundleBerry homeware range here at QVC back in May 2017. Inspired by everything from nature to quirky wallpaper, Amanda’s modern range of furniture and home accessories celebrates bright colours and patterns, while adding an industrial-style edge.

I’ve been enjoying myself on Lunchtime Show duty this week and also looking forward to a busy weekend on air. I’ll be presenting three hours of Charlie Bears with founders Charlotte and Will and they’ve got some beautiful new bears to introduce us all to. Charlie Bears is now popular in many parts of the world but they always find something special to bring their many QVC fans and collectors here in the UK.

The big news though is that my first show with them is on Saturday and it’s TRIPLE DAY (3rd March) at QVC! Yes all on-air items are available in 3 Easy Payments throughout the day and that includes a tasty ‘crammed to the crust’ The Real Pie Company show! Triple Day will showcase some of your other favourite brands and shows, with a Yankee Candle Today’s Special Value offer, SBC, Laura Geller, Coco Bianco, Kipling, Margaret Dabbs and many more. But you don’t have to wait until Saturday to grab a great offer, check out our Triple Deals online now!

So The Real Pie Company Show is at 5pm on Saturday followed immediately by Charlie Bears Collection at 6pm. Charlie Bears returns with yours truly on Sunday again at 6pm for two hours.

I once suggested that Will and Charlotte from Charlie Bears create a ‘Bearded Collie’ bear or and ‘Ellie’ or ‘Toby’ bear, from the picture of Ellie as a pup – you can see why!

I hope you can tune in and join in the fun and great offers this weekend at QVC.

Until next time stay warm and triple happy!

    Congratulations to Craig for holding it together. I watched the Ant and Decs Saturday show for the first time just to watch Amanda and Craig. It was fascinating to watch the other side of the camera at QVC.

    Aww, come on, let’s be honest, Ellie is far more beautiful than any stuffed bear. And that’s from a cat lady!

      Ha ha ! Careful what you say Shemag 😉 Being very biased though I would agree, but those Charlie Bears give her a good run for her money ! Dale x

    OMG what an adorable little puppy….she would make an exceptional Charlie Bear cuddle toy….just love her to bits… Animals of any kind, Dale, make us extremely fortunate to be have them in our lives, albeit sometimes for too short a time. Obviously your Ellie has grown now but the care and love you give will always be there.
