Saying goodbye to QVC with my final fashion choices

Hello again.

I hope this finds you well and possibly having enjoyed the recent relaxation in lockdown. The weather has been kind to many of us – Olley and I benefited from chilly nights but beautiful, clear blue skies and sunshine when we got away in our motorhome.

We enjoyed a break together in Ross on Wye. We’re so lucky to have the van – it’s a brilliant way to travel safely as it’s completely self-contained with our own shower and loo, and of course we carry and cook our own food. In fact, the weather was good enough to use the barbecue and cook outside every day.

We’re now on our way home for me to head into work. Monday 9pm and all-day Tuesday will feature one of my favourite footwear brands Vionic as our Today’s Special Value, with an adjustable slider sandal in a choice of four versatile snake effect colours (the product number is 189087).

Designed with three zone comfort technology, which gives heel stability, arch support and cushioning throughout sole of the foot, I’ve found wearing shoes from Vionic really makes a difference to how comfortable my feet are. By encouraging correct foot alignment and posture, the footwear helps to reduce aches and stiffness, especially if you’re on the go all day.

If you’re searching for the perfect summer dress to wear with your new sandals, look no further than the WynneLayers Today’s Special Value, which launches at 9pm on Tuesday and features all day Wednesday (the product number is 186058). With an effortless maxi shape and beautiful fluid viscose fabric, it’s an easy throw on dress that can be dressed up with heels and jewellery for an evening out or teamed back with flats or trainers for a casual look.

It comes in a range of colours – play it safe with Cloud, Black or Light Heather Grey, add a soft pop of colour with Sage or Sea Blue or choose the brighter tone of Geranium. In regular or petite lengths and with a sheer-sleeved jacket in Chiffon Denim available to layer on top, it’s going to be hard not to go for it in a couple of colours!

I’ll also be bringing you lots of fashion in Morning Style at 10am on Wednesday as usual, but my big news is that I won’t be doing that for much longer because, after almost 21 years as a QVC presenter, I’ve decided to retire!

I’ve been thinking about it for a while now and decided last summer that it really is time that I hang up my earpiece and microphone and stop talking for a living.

My husband Olley is a bit older than me and hasn’t worked for a while now and I really want to spend more time with him rather than leave him at home while I’m at QVC. After 38 years of working in live television I want to concentrate on enjoying time with Olley and the rest of our family.

We love to travel and enjoy touring the UK and Europe in our motorhome – we’re also lucky enough to have had a house in Corfu for the last 20 years. We’ve only ever been able to stay there for two or three weeks at a time but now we can really settle there for a while. I also want to spend more time simply enjoying being at home and in our garden, seeing more of our three amazing children Bex, Charlie and Billy, and two gorgeous granddaughters.

There’s so much to look forward to. Billy, our youngest, is to marry the love of his life, Mel, on the second of June. She’s already part of our family but this will make it official and, although we will be limited by Covid restrictions, it’s going to be the most fabulous and happiest of days.

Also, I find I’m in a so much better mood if I’m outside in nature and fresh air. I benefit hugely from exercising outside and I’ll spend more time walking, swimming, gardening and rowing. Ali Keenan and I try to walk together regularly but it’s never often enough or for long enough to complete all we want to say to each other! Without work to interfere, I hope to see more of the dear friend I met at QVC almost 21 years ago, when we started at the same time.

It’s incredible to think that I began working at QVC the month before Billy started school and the month after I finish at QVC, he will be married!

Of course, it was long before that when my television career started. It was all rather surprising. Having gained a degree in Physiology and Biochemistry, I was working as a sports scientist developing a series of tests to measure functional fitness for athletes competing in different sports and disciplines.

I had enjoyed success myself as a modern pentathlete (horse riding, fencing, pistol shooting, swimming and cross country running), becoming World Champion when I was 19 in 1979. That really was the catalyst for a lifetime spent in the media rather than a science laboratory!

My sporting achievements led to me appearing on Question of Sport (I was on Emlyn Hughes’ team) and I was later asked by the same production team to present a live children’s sports show called Stopwatch. I retired from competing in sport in order to work on the show in 1983, and in 1986 I was spotted by the producer of BBC Holiday. The rest, as they say, is history!

At first, they only gave me activity holidays to report on, so anything that involved getting wet or muddy, jumping off cliffs or out of planes or just simply exhausting was my job. The first film I made was horse riding in the New Forest and I managed to fall off my horse before they’d even got the camera out of its bag!

I eventually got better and had the most wonderful opportunities to try so many different things. I’ve parachuted, surfed, carriage driven, scuba dived, piloted a plane and a glider, water-skied and white water rafted, mountain hiked, kayaked, motor raced, hot air ballooned, parascended, wind surfed, cycled and dog sledged my way around the world.

My role developed into being allowed to work on some more exotic locations and I travelled to the Seychelles, Bali and Alaska. I had a trip in a dugout canoe on a tributary to the Orinoco river in Venezuela (where I slept in a hammock in a mud hut and stood at the top of Angel Falls), I trekked through the jungle in Zaire to meet a family of silverback gorillas and I camped out in the Masai Mara surrounded by hyenas. I’ve skied in the Rocky Mountains, watched glaciers calve in Alaska and marvelled at Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone Park.

How lucky have I been!? I loved it all…

I was asked to join the TVam breakfast television team in 1989. I started on Good Morning Britain sitting beside the lovely Mike Morris and moved to present AfterNine before the birth of our first child Rebecca in the summer of 1991.

I stayed at TVam, fitting in being a mum and continuing to film for BBC Holiday as well until TVam lost the franchise bid to GMTV at the end of 1992. That’s when my then dressing roommate Lorraine Kelly took over the 9am show and six weeks later our second child, Charlie, was born. Our family was complete in 1995 when Billy was born, and as he approached school age I had an interview at QVC and got the job!

In many ways, it doesn’t feel anywhere near as long as twenty-one years since I started. Many of the faces that welcomed me then are still with us now… Julia, Jilly and Anne, Dale and Charlie were all presenting already and many behind the scenes then are still there now too.

The job has changed, of course. I didn’t write a blog at the beginning as there was no social media and the range and quality of what we bring you on air and the number and expertise of our guests have improved hugely.

But the essence of what we do, the connection we feel with you, our viewers, and the friendships I have made at work over the years are the same and the most important. I will miss the people I work with more than anything but I will stay in touch with as many as I can, their friendship is too precious to lose.

I have so many memories to cherish. I’m proud of the part I’ve played in the Morning Show becoming a regular show and have so enjoyed working alongside Simon Biagi (I even like the useless facts he shares at the start of the show – don’t worry, he’ll keep on bringing us those and I’ll just join you as part of the audience…)

I’ve also enjoyed helping to develop Morning Style and I’ve learned so much from our expert fashion stylist guests. I’ll still be buying more than I should from our fashion department!

It’s not just the everyday work that I’ll remember – from tackling the overnight MoonWalk charity marathon with a group of QVC mates, to a trip to the Hong Kong Gemstone Exhibition and learning about the fine jewellery we sell, to making a film on the Queen Elizabeth cruise ship in Dubai when we were selling holiday cruises – there’s so much to cherish. It’s really all been about the people I’ve done everything with, and the teamwork.

The presenters are the face of QVC but we can only do our jobs because there are so many people working hard behind the scenes to make it happen. In a way, that’s true of life itself. It’s the connections that we make with people as we travel though our lives that enrich us more than anything.

My final Morning Style will be at 10am on May 5th when I’ll be joined by the new regular presenter – and I can assure you the show will be in the best of hands. And my very last appearance on air will be with Simon for the Morning Show on May 6th.

I hope you can join me one more time as I say my goodbyes – it’s going to be hard to not become emotional when I think about how long QVC has been such a big and important part of my life.

Thank you for being a part of the QVC family and experience that has sustained me for so long. I’ll try not to look back over my shoulder too often as I move into the next phase of my life but as Olley and I head off into the sunset together, there’ll always be a special place in my heart for QVC.

All the best to you all, do take care.

With love

Kathy xx

    10. I hate to say it…..but I don’t love the new QVC Presenters (and I know I never will), as much I do the “original bunch”. I’ll miss you Kathy. I’ve made many a superb purchase on your presentation advice. Quite remarkably, you answered all the questions on an item that I had in my mind!! Have a wonderful life with Olley and your children in the future. From one of QVC’S Top 25 Reviewers, Teddibe4r. Xx

      1. Hi Carolyn
        Thanks for your kind words. Do please give Katy a chance on Morning Style – I know she’ll be fabulous! I’m so glad I helped answer your questions – after all, that was my job. But not any more, I’m already in Devon with Olley enjoying my new freedom!
        All the best to you

  2. Ho Kathy how I will miss not seeing you on qvc I have got a little upset and tearful when I read your news I have always watched you as you are one of my favourite presenters but realize you can not do it forever. I hope you enjoy and have lots of lovely times away with Ollie and enjoy your time spent with your children and grandchildren as time goes so quickly. All my love to you and your family .Pauline xx

    1. Hello Pauline
      Thank you for your lovely words, I must admit to a tear or two on my last day too! You’re right about time going fast – I plan to try to slow it down a little and fit as much as I can into whatever healthy time I have in front of me.
      All the best to you
      Kathy x

  3. I want to wish you well for the future Kathy. You’ve been amazing on QVC – one of the girls, as normal as the rest of us and natural. Much appreciated and you won’t be easily replaced. I can remember your sporting achievements as well – yes I am that old! I’m sure that your future will be just as interesting for you and your family and cheers to that! Enjoy xx

    1. Dear Rosemary
      I’m always happy when someone remembers me when I was an athlete – you must be almost as old as me!
      I always feel normal, my parents made sure I kept my feet on the ground, and I’m definitely no good as an actress so what you saw on screen was just me!
      All the best to you
      Kathy x

  4. Oh” my goodness Kathy! I heard on your Podcast and now just read your blog that you are leaving for a new wonderful life’s adventure!! We wish you all the good luck and happiness in your new freedom! but you will be missed!!

  12. Good Luck and Enjoy Your Travels Kathy , as Owners of a Motor Home Ourselves we understand how enjoyable time away is . My Husband was with me a few years ago when we met you , the other Ladies and Ali Ks Lovely Son at Salon Prive Syon Park . It was Freezing but you were all enjoying your day out .Have a Lovely last day at work and safe travels in the future , Happy Days , from Heather and Brian McMillan xx

    1. Dear Heather,
      What a lovely day we all had at the Salon Prive event. The weather doesn’t always stop you enjoying yourself, does it. Olley Andy are in Devon in our motorhome at the moment – it’s pouring with rain and blowing a Gale outside but we’re cosy inside. Maybe see you and Brian at a campsite sometime – do say hello!
      All the best to you
      Kathy x

  13. What a long and interesting career you’ve had,I first saw you on the holiday show back in the day.
    Thanks for all you’ve done for us viewers and hope you have a long and well deserved retirement x

  14. I have always enjoyed your presenting on QVC and wish you nothing but the best for the future, I think this Pandemic has made a lot of us older people look at their lives and think, No now is the time for me, to do what I want, be with my husband more, children and grandchildren, so I wish you and Olley a new adventure in your lives, and enjoyment in all you do.

  15. Kathy so sad to hear you will be leaving, after years of QVC viewing, we feel as though the presenters are almost friends and we can so relate to them. I really looked forward to your style shows, especially with Glen Campbell, a great team. However I wish you and your family all the very best for the future and for your retirement ~ you will be missed.

  16. Oh Kathy, what a lovely blog – but I’m so sad to hear that you are leaving. You’ve always been one of my favourite presenters. I love your fashion shows – always think you are totally honest and relate to ‘real women’ with busy lives. I do know where you’re coming from; my husband has also been retired for a while now and I’m going to do the same in July. It’s such a big decision, isn’t it? But I think this past year and half has made many of us re-evaluate things and decide that much as we enjoy our jobs, there is more to life than work.
    I will watch as many of your remaining shows as I can and hope you and Olley enjoy your travels and family times in the future. New adventures await! Wishing you sunshine, smiles and happiness always. xxx

  17. Kathy, you will be much missed on QVC. Thank you for the past 21 years. I wish you lots of fun in your motor home adventures and enjoy spending precious time with your loved ones.
    Best wishes for a happy and healthy retirement. x

  18. Wow you have done so much with your life so far,and many new adventures to come.I’m a career to my58 year old Brother,but I so enjoy hearing from others on there adventures.Enjoy your family and garden but most importantly time for yourself,Good Luck.

  19. All The Best Kathy to You & Your Family! Enjoy Your Travels were ever they take you!! Wishing You Health,Wealth & Lots of Happiness for The Future 🤗xxx

  20. Kathy, you have inspired many women with your career and now you’re blazing a trail again. I think there will be many people who have come through lockdown still employed, but who have realised that they can live without the daily grind and still have a wonderful time. Maybe one of the upsides of Covid will be that some people will be able to stay “stopped”. I’m two years into a work-free life and wouldn’t have it any other way. Enjoy reconnecting, throwing away your diary, and waking up with your first thought being “what shall I do today”, rather than “what do I have to do today”. It’s a whole different world. You’ll love it. Best, SheMag

  21. Oh Kathy – I am so sad and sorry to see you go!!!

    Everything you have presented you have turned into magic. Be it the Holiday programme, After Nine on TVam and now QVC.

    You are one of the nicest and most natural presenters ever to grace our screens.

    Wishing you every happiness with your family in the years ahead – QVC will never be the same again!!!

    Kind regards


  22. You’ll be greatly missed ! Here’s wishing you a long and happy retirement thats full of love, laughter and adventure ! Xx

  23. Hi Kathy. So sad to hear you are leaving. It’s been a joy to watch you and introduce me to QVC when we went digital. I am sure you will be missed by not only your colleagues but by the many viewers who have watched you over the years. I wish you and your husband a very happy retirement. You have some amazing memories to look back on and now, many more. The very best to you all.

  24. Oh my gosh, I can’t believe u are leaving after all this time. There seems to be so much change recently at QVC. I’m only just getting over the fact that Claire Sutton has also left & we haven’t seen Jill Frank’s for a good couple of months now. Wat on earth is going on! But I’m wishing u all the best wishes in ur retirement & being able to have the time & freedom to be able to spend more good, quality time with ur husband & family,XXX.

  25. So sorry to read you are leaving, I was so pleased when you returned after your Covid virus, but I can totally understand. In these times we must make the most of our loved ones and make every moment count, and make many more good memories. Enjoy being a Nan with your lovely Granddaughters, also your Sons wedding. You and Ollie will have the time of your lives, doing things together. I will really miss you, you are a really genuinely lovely person, I love the way you talk about your family, you can tell in your voice how dear they all are to you.
    Good luck in your new venture, love to you all xx

    1. Hello Kathy, I’ve just seen you on QVC with Simon. I was surprised to hear that you’ve decided to hang up your microphone at QVC, however, I wish you all the very best in your new chapter and spending more time with your family. I decided to do exactly the same at the end of March this year. I had worked for Anglian Water for nearly 30 years. I’m hoping to do something completely different for a few hours per week, however, at the moment, I’m keeping busy in the garden, having a major clear out in the house and looking after one of my granddaughter’s on a Friday. We have one grandson and 2 granddaughter’s. Health and family are everything; we need to cherish them both. All the very best to you. You’ll be missed. Take care, stay safe. Bev xx

  26. Hi Kathy so sad to see that another of our great presenters is leaving QVC but I wish both you and Olly a long and happy retirement. Enjoy the extra time that you will have with your children and grandchildren. All the very best for the future. Love Molly Dawson Xx

  29. Dear Kathy, I feel we have been through life’s transitions at similar times since first watching you on TV am . Now there are new goals to achieve at a more leisurely and enjoyable pace. It would be lovely if you ever had the inclination to continue some blogs or updates on a social platform as they are always a good read. Wishing you everything that you wish for yourself .Take care xx

    I’m so sad to hear that you are leaving qvc but wish you all the best for your future and retirement. You are one of the most down to earth, easy people to watch and I imagine you are the most lovely friend to have. Ali K is very lucky! You deserve such a happy retirement and I am so pleased you are recovering from covid. You have achieved so much from your sporting life to your presenting life. You have so much to live for so go and enjoy your children and grandchildren and maybe let us see a photo of your lovely son’s wedding! Take care and good luck x

  44. Hi Kathy. I’ll miss watching you on QVC and reading your news. I remember seeing you quite a few years ago. I was on my honeymoon and we had arrived at our overnight stay at a game park in Tanzania. My husband was dealing with the check in details and I was busy trying to get away from a very inquisitive baboon!! This truck appeared, the back tarpaulin opened and out you jumped! Travelling on your holiday programme. Happy days.

    Enjoy your retirement. It’s well deserved.

    I’ve loved your Wednesday shows. ‘Taped’ them so I could watch after work. I’ve always enjoyed your fashion ethos.

    We’ve all recently ‘relearnt’ to appreciate our life so you crack on and enjoy! You’ll be missed & fondly remembered but it’s now time for you & your hubby. Have a grand adventure!

  57. Oh Kathy, was sad to read that you will be leaving QVC. Will miss you, you are one of the best and most natural presenters on QVC, I’ve loved you on the morning shows with Simon, and the fashion shows too. I wish you all the luck and happiness on your retirement with your lovely husband, and of course you will be able to see more of your grandchildren too. Life is all about family and I think the last year has made us take stock of our lives, realising we must live for the moment. You have had a wonderful life, lots of adventures and lovely places to visit. Am sure Corfu will be calling you and your lovely camper van will take you to pastures new. I wish you and your hubby much joy and happiness for the future, enjoy whatever it brings. Good luck and enjoy the next chapter of your life!xx

  58. Oh Kathy, so sorry to hear you are leaving QVC, I will miss your smiling face and knowledge about fashion……but family must always come first.
    Being a similar age to me I feel you really understand what it’s like going through another big change in life.
    I know you haven’t been very well recently and wondered if that had any influence on your decision to retire……if it did I can’t say I blame you.
    With my best wishes for a long and happy and healthy retirement……Hazel xx

    As others have said you come across as a warm caring person and I can vouch for that.Some years back when QVC was in Battersea I was invited to attend an event bringing my daughter along as a guest. You came in at the end and spoke with my Abigail who is autistic she was thrilled as you are her favourite presenter. She also wrote to you and you graciously write back admiring her handwriting and sending photos of presenters. We still have that letter . I find it hard to believe that you have worked soo long at QVC. Take care and good luck for the future

  74. By kathy i love your natural laugh and ability to connect with viewers tbrough TV

You have an honesty that shines through, helpful and interesting. I am in your peer group, watched you on all your TV programmes, had my children at similar times to you. I have always admired you and respected your work. I am so sorry you and your husband have been ill with the dreaded C19 I wondered why you were absent. It was dreadful without you! I will miss you very, very much. Enjoy Billy’s wedding. Enjoy the next adventure of your life, with your husband. The best is yet to come. Wishing you love, peace and joy. XXX

  104. Lovely Kathy, I’d like to wish you a very happy retirement and to say how much I’ve enjoyed seeing you on our TV screens over the years. It’s always a bit sad when much loved QVC presenters move on – it’s been great for me to feel part of the QVC family for many years. However, as a retired person myself, I can fully understand that you want to have more time to spend with your husband and family – you deserve it. I hope you enjoy very many happy, healthy, liberating times at home and abroad. Very best wishes.

  109. Hi there Kathy. I am so sorry to hear of your retirement, but that is my selfish feeling coming to the surface. I have watched you for many years. I watched Stopwatch every week, I remember Emlyn Hughes as I wrote a few penpal letters to him. I also remember you starting on the settee for the morning breakfast show, as that was the year I had our first Son, so would watch you and the other presenters, making news more accessible.
    It was lovely watching you again on QVC. You made it all look so easy. I will miss watching you on my screen, but I wish you and all of your family, the very best of wishes for your retirement. I hope you and Olly have more adventures to find and conquer yet more new things to do. Will be watching your last days, probably fighting the emotions with you. Love Julie xx

  110. Best wishes for the future. I remember you starting and have loved watching you over the years. It will be a sad day.x

  111. Sorry to see you go to Kathy.Will miss your genuine smile.I often used you as a model when you wore whatever fashion was on.Enjoy your retirement with your family💐

  129. Kathy, I just felt I had to put fingers to keyboard to wish you a long and happy retirement with Olley and the rest of your family. I shall miss you on the Morning Show and, of course, your signature show, Morning Style and your blogs which were always interesting. What shall I do? How we will know how Billy’s wedding goes and what you’ll be wearing? We’ll miss your wonderful smile in the mornings, your positivity and to quote someone else, we all felt you were our friend. So, once again, I wish you all the best for the future.

  130. Although the news of you retiring is very sad and the Morning style shows will be very different it’s lovely to hear that you are going to have time for yourself and your family. From your blog you’ve had an amazing life and done things that many of us will never get to do but now it’s time to relax, well as best as you can, your plans sounds very exciting. I hope that through your friends, Ali K who you are BFF’s with, we will still hear about your adventures.
    Have a wonderful and long retirement, you’ve earned it.

  142. So sorry to see you go, this is the first time I have ever made a comment but just wanted to say you will be missed. I love your Morning Style hours you were always honest and explained really well the quality and features of the items.
    I hope you will enjoy your well deserved retirement.

  143. I was there when you won the Modern Pentathlon World Championship – I was at every event, including the lunch with Princess Anne at the shooting at Dartford. My late husband’s company, Norwich Union, sponsored the event, but I had previously worked at the CCPR, and the Sports Council. I remember you well, and I was delighted when I first joined QVC to find you were one of the presenters. You were always my favourite. You asked the questions I would have, and never went over the top, as some of the presenters do. You will be greatly missed. I well understand your reasons for leaving. I too had a husband quite a bit older than myself, and you have to think about that when it comes to thinking about retirement – you want as many leisure years together as you can. You don’t know what’s round the corner. Good luck for the future. Enjoy – particularly the wedding!

  144. Happy retirement Kathy you always said the truth when you talked about clothes and I’m sure you will be missed by your colleagues take care

  145. Hi Kathy
    I didnt know this site existed until today and I have been with QVC UK virtually from the beginning. I was thrilled to see you had joined QVC and watched you because I knew of your sporting achievements. The other day I said to myself where is Kathy Taylor? I now know you wanted to spend more time with your husband and how lovely is that.
    Best wishes to you in all that you do in the future.
