QVC Gardening returns and a new adventure for Craig!

Hello and Happy New Year!

I do hope you had a good festive season? Mine was wonderful – I was working at QVC over most of the Christmas holiday but I did get to Bristol for a quick visit to see my family, which was pure joy after not being able to last year. Then I was off at New Year and spent it dancing and drinking cocktails (too many cocktails!) with friends.

I will be back at QVC this Thursday 6th January and wanted to let you know that I have a fashion sale show on QVC Style and a 6pm Kelly Hoppen Sale show. I love Kelly’s range, so always good to get a bargain!

Then on Saturday and Sunday, I will be hosting shows with Michael Perry, as QVC gardening gets back into full swing for the new season. I am really looking forward to be working with Michael again – we always have really busy and fun shows and his endless knowledge of gardening never fails to amaze me!

Then away from QVC, this Friday marks the beginning of a new journey for me as I join the team of property experts of Channels 4’s ‘A Place in the Sun’. After secretly filming in Spain, France and Barbados over the late summer and autumn of last year, the episodes will start to go out and hopefully bring some much needed sunshine into our lives over these gloomy months. As you can imagine, I am so excited to be working on this show. I have been watching it for years and as someone who has always loved travel and renovated several properties myself, it’s the dream project to be working on! Don’t worry though, I will be remaining part of the QVC family.

In my first espisode, I will be househunting with newlyweds Gabriel and Alison for a holiday home in Denia; I’ve shared a couple of ‘behind the scenes’ photos and an instagram reel of the moment we finished filming on the Denial harbour.

The show airs at 3pm Friday 7th January on Channel 4 or you can watch it after it airs on the All 4 catch up service online – hope you enjoy it!

So, that’s it for my first blog this year – wishing you all the best for 2022 and as always, sending big hugs,
Craig xx

  4. Hi Craig

    Happy new year. I love watching you on QVC. Your infectious smile and laugh really shines through to the person
    you are. This afternoon I was pottering around doing odd jobs and had the TV on. I thought I recognised the voice but thought ‘no way’. However after watching tv it certainly was you! Needless to say the jobs were put on hold! What a great job you did. Congratulations. I hope you continue with the program but please don’t leave QVC. All the best to you.
