    Lisa Riley’s Back and Better Than Ever With Her Brand New Autumn Clothing Line, Exclusively at Ideal World

    We’re excited to announce that TV favourite and Loose Women panellist Lisa Riley is returning to Ideal World with style to unveil her brand new autumn clothing line.

      After winning multiple plus size awards, Lisa decided to launch her own clothing label ‘Just Be You’ exclusively with Ideal World to overcome the disappointment in styles previously offered to her. After sharing her amazing weight loss journey with the nation, Lisa created her collection of clothing and garments to make you feel “confident, sexy and beautiful.”

    The TV favourite says “Of all my collections with Ideal World, this is by far my ultimate favourite. I feel the fabrics, colours and the unique “me” style comes across 100%. It is fashion for everyone. I hope you love it as much as I do!”

      Default Ideal world payment line...grrrr!

      I bought some crap a couple of months ago on 2 month's flexipay, but sometime after the first payment, I lost my cards and had to stop them and get new ones...The thing is I'd forgotten about the flexipay, so of course when they tried to get the funds, they weren't able to, so I received a garbled message on my answerphone, and I'll be honest I didn't understand what the chap was saying, I heard him say Ideal World and the word payment and a garbled number to ring that I tried to write down but didn't catch. I thought perhaps they were offering some kind of scheme so I didn't persue it any further. About a week later a snotty letter arrived telling me that the card I'd used for my flexipay had expired and that I have to 26 July to pay the balance or else! Right I got it...I can see what happened but I can afford to wait until payday. Tried to log into my account to pay today and was unable to get on due to technical problems, so I reluctantly phoned the number on the letter as I didn't want to forget and incur further charges. I called and a gave my details to the man who picked up the call, who very curtly told me to take him off "speakerphone" as it's rather irritating, I said you're not on speakerphone! He said all I can hear is my own voice, it's very irritating!, So I put him on speakerphone, took him straight off, and he said "that's better!". I proceeded to give him my details which he kept asking me to repeat (Just to let you know at this juncture that when you call the number it informs you that you're being charged 13 pence per minute!), then once repeated, he called it back to me! Got so far and he said "why you put me back on speakerphone?" I can't hear you....Of course, I hadn't, told him that I hadn't....He said I can't hear you. "Yes you can, I said"...silence..then "Hello, hello...are you there...will you please take me off speakerphone...it's very irritating I can only hear my own voice"....I said for the last time you are NOT on speakerphone, will you kindly just take my payment details! Oh, it must be a bad line then...Well I can hear you clearly enough...finally he agreed to try and put it through if I spoke loudly and clearly! Thankfully I managed to get him to take the correct number down and put the payment through..but what a lot of old boll*cks!!! The operators have so obviously been instructed to spin the calls out for as long as possible, by whatever which means they choose...makes my blood boil...and I've said it before I know but I most certainly will think twice about buying anything from this shoddy outfit ever again...disgusting!

      I do occasionally order from IW, but only ever order via their website. I refuse to pay their phone charges. I did have a problem with an order a couple of months ago and so contacted them via their customer services email. They responded within a couple of hours and, thankfully, the issue was quickly sorted out with a positive outcome. I could be in the minority for saying that I've not got a problem with them ...... so far anyway.

      Thank you for the explanation shopperholic. I avoid phoning IW and C&C at all costs due to the difficulty in getting a straight answer but whenever I have had a problem with C&C an email has sorted it out. I order a fair few things from C&C as a club member and get good discounts on crafty things and I think club members get a lot more from being a member than the club members on Hochanda. I tend to avoid IW due to their presenters - difficult to work out why they have the duff ones and C&C do OK.

      I think I'm gonna avoid all shopping channels from now on, this isn't to say I'll stop watching them, as for some reason I find them entertaining. I've bought so much stuff over the years and I'd have to say that a lot of it has been disappointing, and on some occassions I've kept stuff I've not been happy with because of the charges, and admittedly just couldn't be ar$ed! Half of the stuff I've bought from the channels I dare say I wouldn't have purchased had I seen them in a shop, kitchen stuff especially, but you see all the demos, think of all the possibilities and get sucked right in! ...and as for clothing, the last pile of acrylic shite I bought from IW just reinforced my changing views about tv shopping. Clothes need to be examined in person and tried on really! Having said that I do have a mail order catalogue, returns are free and really simple, as is delivery...So I'm gonna try my best and stick to them and the high street (that needs all the support it can get!). I remember buying a vacuum cleaner from Robert Dyas a few years ago and it was faulty, so I took it back, deciding that I'd go for a refund instead of a replacement as it was far too noisy anyway...No problem, had this been IW, ok I know they're better now they've teamed up with Asda, (no good to me cause I don't drive) but it would have meant emails, phonecalls, waiting in for someone to collect it, waiting in for the replacement to arrive, having to wait for a refund, possibly having to chase it up - Nah!

      I agree Merryone, I watch a bit for a laugh but I prefer to see goods before I buy. If it is an expensive item I am a coward and buy from places like John Lewis who I trust if there are problems. Even buying clothes, I will spot something I like, similar to other items I have, in my size but I try it on and it looks awful, or when I touch the fabric I don't like it. That is why I wouldn't buy off a shopping channel cos I probably couldn't be bothered to return it if I didn't like it. If it is a household item I like Robert Dyas, or Wilko for cheap and cheerful bits, like 30p for a wooden spoon last Saturday!
