Debbie Flint - TV Presenter

Debbie Flint is the proud presenter of QVC Home Shopping Channel in the UK. But she's had her fair share of jobbing presenter work!

She was the first girl in the hot seat on children's BBC TV, replacing Phillip Schofield in the broom cupboard, ('86/87). Then she shared a couch with Eamon Holmes to help launch BBC Daytime TV, on Open Air ('86/87). Years later, she finally hosted her own BBC1 game show (Meet The Challenge, '98) and has co-presented and reported on numerous other live magazine and entertainment and news shows on Living, BSB, Telewest, SSVC Forces TV, and many radio shows, Piccadilly, LBC, Mercury, Eclipse, BFBS. She has clocked up over 20000 hours of live ad-lib presenting on shopping TV - QVC, Ideal World, Bid TV, HSE, Simply Television - and has been one of the country's foremost DRTV consultants, writing, producing and presenting infomercials, including two of the most successful shows in the UK in the early 2000's.

    Hello Debbie, I have been away from QVC for a few years. I have finished my Christmas shopping, having bought Loccitane, Molton Brown, for all my family. Grandchildren getting money. Today I have treated myself to TSV Dyson. Love watching you I think you could sell snow to the Inuits. Gill xx

    Hi Debbie

    Have just purchased the BodyBlade and am finding it really difficult to do. Obviously I don't have much upper body strength.
    You mention several videos that you do with Bruce that are not on facebook; where can I locate them please?
    I thought they were on your website?
    With thanks

    for those that asked. that ideal world doc from just after paul and I left is on youtube - really well made behind the scenes expose on how far behind the logistics and organisation were - scary! I was there just under a year. Went off to do training at Simply TV, (now shut down), HSE( now shut down) and BidUp (now bid). But my own importing company took over. Until that shut down. then I went back into finance (accounting degree! lol). until all of them, began to shut down! haha! maybe it was me... :-)
