As many of you will have heard, we recently said goodbye to the wonderful Tova Borgnine. Tova touched the hearts of millions of people over the years, she was a familiar face on QVC internationally and her skincare, fragrances and jewellery are bestsellers.
I was very fortunate to have shared some fun, crazy and inspiring times with Tova. Back in 2013 myself and Alison Young hosted a few shows from the QVC studios in America, Tova lived nearby and invited us over for ‘tea’, well that actually meant champagne and canapés – that’s how Tova rolled!
In 2015, I interviewed Tova in her suite at The Ritz in central London for her 20th anniversary on QVC. Tova always stayed at The Ritz when in town, it was her home from home and the team adored her. I’ve managed to find the video for you, it made me smile watching it back…
Will’s interview with the late Tova Borgnine on her 20 years with QVC
More recently in 2019, I sat down with Tova for the Inside QVC podcast, we talked and talked, her stories were fabulous as always, I’ve never heard so many big names in one interview. You can listen back here, we will also be re-releasing this episode on Monday 7th March as a special tribute.
So, cheers to you Tova, thank you for the glamour, the advice, the kind emails and of course the champagne. We’re all going to miss you very much, shine like the star you will always be!
Love, Will x
