    Random musings and general banter.

    Although I had been watching QVC from its UK launch, plus a few of the other channels, I first became aware of Bid and Price Drop around 2003 when a lady who worked for me recommended it (also my ex's aunty bought a lot of jewellery from there). The first face I saw was Peter Simon and I was...

    New product launch tonight. Mason with an electric seated elliptical trainer. Basically you sit there, put your feet on it and it pedals itself. So yet another "fitness" product with negligible benefits that you should do your own research on (ie it does fuck all!). Yet again they'd rather flog...

    Simon Lies was doing a blue magic or Shitazzle show a few weeks ago and brought up Pervy to the presenter. He was saying that he himself had been doing demonstrating and shopping telly for about 21 years which was longer than Peter as he'd only been doing it for 20 so that takes him back to...

    I did notice on the next show that they'd swapped the bikes around so it was showing the right way up on the other side of the bike 😂

    It must be worrying the IW staff and presenters as it's become very apparent how the range of products seems to have shrank a great deal and I don't think that's down to COVID. Tonight's overnight show for example is home fitness. What are they offering? The Vibrapower plate and the inversion...

    That's similar patter to what Shona was saying earlier about the Emma mattress. Saying how we could be forgiven for thinking Emma had been giving us quality mattresses for decades because their name is "synonymous with luxury". They only started in 2017 and nobody I've asked has ever heard of...

    I actually can't stand the royals and think we should get rid of the lot of them. However, I understand that a lot of the country would be in a state of mourning and IW should respect that instead of putting profits first. Personally I'm more pissed off with Pointless and Would I Lie To You...

    As a mark of respect after the passing of Prince Philip, a number of channels including QVC and the jewellery channels have gone off the air. IW have decided that their fashion blockbuster show is more important with Creepy Crawley grinning and laughing his way through. I'm surprised he's not...

    Just caught some of Rob on the repeat showing of the Vibrapower show. Ignoring the fact he's sat on his arse again with just his feet on a vibrating plate (there's a 19 stone weight limit on them after all). He's just basically said that this model isn't the best looking, or best performing but...

    IW presenters

    Found Sally's secret account😂😂😂 In all fairness, Sally isn't too bad. I certainly wouldn't lump her in with Varney, Barrow Boy and Pervy Pete. It's unfortunate that she came over with the dregs from Bid because I think she would have complimented Loen, Andy and the old IW team instead of being...

    Hochanda to Be Rebranded

    I wish them well but it's the screen quality of standard definition that's awful. I don't craft but I like watching craft channels to chill out and relax. Unfortunately it's like watching an old '90's VHS tape which, when you're selling delicate arts and crafts materials, just makes everything...

    Definitely Pervy Pete then. He wants to watch out, with all the health problems that he keeps telling us he has when he's trying to flog to us in his sincere voice, I'm surprised he didn't follow through! He's always been full of shite 😂

    In the spirit of their birthday for ideal world which started back in the 1980's, sorry, 2000, 21 years ago this week, no hang on, next month; a channel that not uuuuhnly has, at its very essence, in its multitudinous luxury like never having been seen before or since, memories of running...

    Oh no! John is making pastry in the Bamix attachment and Rob has just piped up "I'm quite partial to a nice puff myself". Really? An outdated homophobic slur on shopping telly? Is that what you've become now Rob? It's 2021. Even John got embarrassed and he's dressed up as Adam Ant on live telly!

    Ignoring the fact that they're doing an 80's theme for the anniversary of a channel that started in 2000, I've just flicked over for the first time today and "I'm not a chef" John is dressed as Adam Ant. Rob however is just sitting (as usual) in an old leather jacket and, looking like a twat...

    Rob mentioned last night that he has a new agent who has managed to get him some parts in upcoming dramas. As has been said it will probably be Corpse #3 in Vera or some minor role that he will endlessly push once it's been shown. On the subject of becoming a singer, if memory serves me right...

    I'm seriously concerned about Rob Locke (with an E) and his mental state. Simon Lies can hardly get his carpet washing shtick in because Rob has been waffling shite for the last 25 minutes. We're getting all his greatest hits tonight; "I used to live in L.A. you know", "I've been told I look...

    If it's so good a product and he believes in it so much, even if he does like being bald, why doesn't he try it for a month? Prove it to us because we're not just his customers, we're his prized friends who he keeps telling us that he'd never lie to us. Him and the Goddess swear by every other...

    If I hadn't deleted it so quickly I would have. I saw the BK story earlier so that was the first thing I thought of

    Well if there's any doubt about the "lad culture" behind the scenes at Ideal World, it's just been confirmed to me at least, in their latest email headed "Celebrate International Women's Day with Kitchen Aid". You can hear it now, "Get back in there Goddess and make me a fackin' sandwich!"
