Exclusive to QVC – the hardback of Till the Fat Lady Slims – get yours early! Adv orders end Jan.

Welcome to the first new streamlined blog layout for 2015. The same regular features are here – but laid out more compactly. It was taking me 5 hours a week to do each blog! So I’ve made a resolution to give myself more time and complete it within a time limit… Enjoy!



This week it was weird ‘cos I popped up on several different shows, not just QVC, in one way or another! It was all mentioned on my website homepage. This week, Debbie’s News featured the following:

University Challenge – QVC Question! Guess what? We were a question on last week’s ‘University Challenge’! Yes Jeremy Paxman said my name. Find out why on Debbie’s News on my home page here – www.debbieflint.com

You know you’ve made it when you get a mention from Jezza! Haha! The show I actually interviewed him on was 31 West, an entertainment show, in 1990 (in the old BSB studios which became the old QVC studios, funnily enough!) When I saw him read out the question, I was like ‘Jeremy Paxman said my name!’ Nitwit eh! Lol. You’ll also see that good old ITV’s ‘It’ll Be Alright on the Night’, collapsing bottles blooper! See it amidst Griff Rhys Jones’ madcap mishaps and look which QVC guest appears just before mine! Plus Kathy Tayler’s cruise clanger made it on too. All on my home page news on my website!

Jo Good and me pic

BBC Radio London Interview – yes as I mentioned last week, the lovely Jo Good also invited me in to be on her show! How chuffed was I? That’s also on my home page.It was with regard to my ‘Till the Fat Lady Slims 2.0 – the ‘When’ Diet’ book. If you missed it, do listen soon it’s only available till the end of January:

What a lot of mentions all this week!

Did you see it? If not, here it is!


My occasional well-being show (Jan & Sept), Back to You, returned for its third series on QVC on Monday. We had a smashing first show, we heard comments from some of our regular viewers, fitness and wellbeing ideas like Lesley Sansone’s walking DVD’s, (Lesley was also on Jo Good’s show this week – listen here,)  SJ with Bare Minerals makeup tips and how to save time for your routine with the Miele Robert vaccum among other items. OK so that one was a bit tenuous but Russell said less time on housework and more me-time so that was good enough for me!

The One Minute Challenge was back on top form! I did it on the back-in-stock Leg Master. I love this product, it’s really helped me get a better bottom! So much so I featured it on my little tease before the show! Watch this –

Back to You blog on my website –

  • Our weekly web chats – Ruth from Perfect Formula and Tom from Alpha H, fresh from their recent Today’s Special Values. Their Q&A in full!
  • Plus – seriously sugar addicted? Three videos I use to help me give up.
  • Go to my Back to You blog on my website,

Next week – Bruce from Bodyblade is our star!! Monday 12th 9pm.  And he’s on 8-9pm web chat too!

Join the Facebook group Back to You QVC in time for the chat on Monday!

Pic of Bruce and me




Sky Mystery? I was out walking dogs this week and saw this strange sight. Just watch this video clip – for all plane/ atmospherics geeks out there and let me know – why does this happen? Why? Why?

Back To You, Cream Tube Tip – 
Loved this tip from Donna on our Back to You QVC Facebook group this week! Have you got any similar ones? Seems a lot of people have been doing this cutting open cream tubes for years! Makes sense eh.

Liz Earle

Watch out for Decleor new Today’s Special Value in Supersizes this Sunday (11th). And a Liz Earle One Time Only in the 7pm show on Monday 12th!

Decleor 206997

GatineauMichaela Marriage Pic
Michaela from Gatineau, has given me this pic to put up for those of you who wished her well at her recent wedding to her lovely man! And baby came too! Bless! Makes me go all wistful! Ahhhh!


Watch out for Michaela and Andrew back on Thursday 15th with Gatineau’s new Today’s Special Value offer!

Gatineau TSV


Frow-back Friday! Love this pic I got this week from my pal Denise (nee Barnhurst) from our skiing trip this time in 1976, to Andalo Italy with the Willows girls and Rutlish boys. Such a laugh! Which you can have right now with my fat face and weird eyebrows! Lol! My daughter said ‘what’s wrong with your tooth?’ Well until I did children’s BBC in 1985, I had a wonky front tooth. Biddy Baxter told me I should get it done when I went to see her on my Blue Peter ‘near miss’ during my time in the broom cupboard – so I did! More reminiscences next week!

Throwback Friday


 QVC Shhh! Another temporary offer from Nina Leonard Fashions with me Monday (12th) at 11pm, once this TSV tunic has sold out I’ll have a OTO bargain, don’t miss it!


Sneaky peek! Another fab launch with Lee Hohbein on Saturday night (17th) – the Acer Aspire Switch– join us!


Another series of Celebrity Big Brother begins and I’m a sucker for this social experiment! But am not sure if I’m going to be watching this one.Why? Not enough C in CBB! Watch this and see how many ‘celebs’ you can name? Good god! I wish they’d put name captions on. Go Ken, Cheggers and Katie Hopkins – some of the few recognisable ones!! Katie’s ‘My Fat Story’ is very watchable by the way – whatever you think of her – see it on catch up. (PS More magic movie moments next week!)


This week –
I’m off Sat and Sun – was gonna go on a juicing workshop with Craigy but he’s going on hols now, so I’m going to write write write! Then I’m back Monday night (12th) at 9pm with another wonderful Back to You show. Also midnight Tuesday with this fab Kelly Hoppen 700TV set – it irons like a dream and transforms a guest bedroom, doesn’t it?! Plus Ralph fans, Honora pearls are on for two hours both Wed and Thurs with Dale then Ali K! Check our TV Guide for up to three weeks ahead!

Kelly Hoppen


BLOOPER – Bless our QVC models!


Facebook funnyFacebook Funny Haha! Know that feeling? I could add ‘sins and cosins and functions to that equation! You too?

 Question of the WeekWhat else did you learn at school which you never ever used again? Tell me by leaving a comment below.

Next week’s blog will feature the whole of the second Back to You show, and a brand new Super6 challenge with Bruce Bodyblade! And an evening courtesy of Alpha H! Craigy and I attend their special launch party!

    Boy , I certainly wasn’t expecting to see me on your blog Debbie was a bit of a shocker to see how I ” used to be ” carrying all that extra weight certainly added to my disablity.
    As you know I dont do scales so I haven’t a clue but gone are the size 20’s and I’m wearing DG size 14 jeans …. TLFLS changed my life ♡ Thank you ♡ and I also made some lifelong friends along the way … Bonus xx

    Mullins on West Street? No don’t think I have! Will have to look out for it. Had a lovely pre-xmas meal in Viva though – fab italian – with my kids and their crew. Plus we’ve got Waitrose as well now with a little cafe , eh!
    Mind you it will have to go a long way to beat Tillings Tea Rooms in Gomshall – the best gluten free stuff! x

    Hey you! Yes it’s been quite compulsive – what a brilliant experiment in human behaviour and how different it would have been if it’d been on thirty years ago , right?! x
