Health & Fitness, News, Presenter Blogs

Hayley tells us all about the BRAND NEW Vibrapower Slim 2!

“I’m so excited… I love Birthday Celebrations! I love getting and writing the perfect card, making the cake and finding a perfect present, and for our Birthday I LOVE Free P&P!

We have the perfect present launching on Saturday night over our Birthday weekend, it’s the world exclusive launch of the the Vibrapower Slim 2, one of your favourite Vibrapower’s from my favourite fitness brand!

The Vibrapower Slim 2 is slimmer and lighter but also designed so you can control your work out from your wrist! It’s amazing! It’s so easy to use and to operate, and an easy ways to help you get into shape, help you feel fitter and help you to become a healthier you.

You can now operate the machine with a remote wrist band ‘watch’ that comes with it too! You can count those calories disappearing on the onboard screen whilst you just stand, sit or lean on your Vibrapower Slim 2! Start moving, start thinking about what you’re eating and get that happy balance into your life – it is possible to make those changes.

Why do I love the Vibrapower range so much?

It’s quick and simple to get a full body work out, I don’t even have to leave the house and can do it in my PJ’s! I love it because there are so many great stories as so many people have seen such great results, succeeding to get to how they wanted to be.

It was only the other day, when I took my car into the garage for a service, that one of the team called me into her office and said ‘I bought a Vibrapower from you, it’s fabulous!’ She told me of her story, that because of an accident she couldn’t run like she used to or lift weights any more. So after watching a show she decided to give the Vibrapower a go and loves it! She loves being able to exercise again and actually finds it relaxing after a day in the office and really has seen great results too. That’s why I love Vibrapower, it makes me so happy that it works for so many people.

For me, my perfect day starts with a workout on my Vibrapower, it makes me feel fresher, fitter and happier to start my day. Though I’m using energy whilst on it, I feel it gives me more energy back! I seem to be able to get so much more done on the days where I start with my Vibrapower.

Why will you love the Vibrapower Slim 2?

It’s slimmer, lighter and with a roller it’s so easy to store and move. It’s a great size of platform to work on which I think gives you more versatility and can create even more workout levels.

The wrist band ‘watch’ control is at your finger tips and so easy to work, PLUS we’ve brought it out in all you favourite colours.

Not only do we have an amazing deal for the launch, but we also have absolutely NO P&P for our Birthday only!

So please join our Birthday 🎉 Celebrations, with all our Fabulous Family, share our Friendship and come and have fun. All starts Wednesday at 5pm…

Catch the launch of our Vibrapower Slim 2 on Saturday night (1st April) at 9pm….

You’re all invited! Hayley x”

Mike tells us why you should consider a Dormeo Mattress!

Home, News

When it comes to a great night’s sleep I think it can be summed up with one word, “Dormeo”.

There is somethinDormeo Mattressg about the Luxury Hybrid mattress that just sets it apart from so many of the other mattresses that are available in the market place today.

Dormeo truly understand as to what is needed in order to accomplish a great night’s sleep. Is it super comfortable luxury memory foam or the absorbency of pocket springs that is required? Dormeo don’t even ask you to choose because this Luxury Hybrid mattress gives you both, so one can only imagine how wonderful that must be like to lie down on, let alone sleep upon and that is just for starters.

On that point I shall ask you to tune in for our special Pick of the Day price for our 17th Birthday between 9pm Friday 31st March until 9pm Saturday 1st April – including a double mattress for just £249.99 with free pillows, oh and have we mentioned FREE P&P!!!!! It’s a deal you cannot afford to miss.

Take your pick from:

But don’t miss out, because this fantastic offer ends at 9pm on Sunday 1st April!

Shaun in the Garden – last week of March

Garden, News, Shaun's One To Watch

Hello again all my gardening friends and welcome to my weekly gardening blog.

I’ve had a lovely time this week on my days off and have got quite a lot done as there has been a lot of sunshine around. I’ve managed to dead head all my baskets and tubs – I have about 40 of these so it’s quite a big job. I’ve also fed all my plants in the greenhouse, done lots of weeding and cut the lawns so quite a productive time in general.

It’s amazing how quickly the garden is changing now we are getting some warmer weather and we have changed the clocks. One of my favourite spring flowering trees has got to be magnolias. I have two different varieties in my garden and they have just started to come into flower over the past couple of days and look magnificent! I love the way they burst into full flower before producing their leaves, it really allows the flowers to be prominent and proud.

Now before I forget, don’t forget to put these dates in your diary for this weekend, my gardening shows at midday this Saturday April 1st and our regular 2 hours of gardening at  11am Sunday 2nd April. These are going to be extra special shows as it’s Ideal Worlds 17th birthday, they may even be FREE P&P on all the plants so please make sure you join myself and my great friend Angela

See you very soon

Fashion, Gen's Blog, News

I am so excited to be celebrating Ideal World’s 17th Birthday!

I have been so lucky to have celebrated many Ideal World Birthday’s and it’s always the highlight of the year. I love the atmosphere, the excitement of the lead up and the fantastic shows. We love the free P&P too!

There have been so many great memories – meeting our live studio audience was one of the best – and funny moments both in front of the camera and behind; from talking ginger cats (Janice Philips) to fits of giggles and wearing a dress back to front (I thought it looked fine!). It’s great that we get to share these moments with all of our viewers.

The one thing that stands out the most is the pride we have Ideal World and the hard work that everyone puts in everyday.

As you know fashion has been a huge part of my life at Ideal World and I am so proud to work with our amazing team. Our fashion has grown  so much over the years and I especially love our Birthday FRIDAY Fashion. It’s always so busy with lots of new products, specials and, of course FREE P&P.

This Birthday, not only do we have a stunning line up on Friday Fashion, we also have a fantastic Pick of the Day to launch the Fashion celebrations.

I am delighted to be launching the beautiful Nicole Pick of the Day on Wednesday, you are going to love the new colours! From pastels to neutrals – I have my eye on a gorgeous red. I also think we may sell out! I won’t give away too much as I don’t want to spoil the surprise..

Then on Friday at 3pm join me for the spectacular Friday Fashion Birthday special. I have had a preview of the brand new ranges of prints, colours and our best selling tapered trousers with a new collection of summer colours, all I am going to say is that it’s going to be a very, very busy show! Did I mention Free P&P?

My other love is beauty and I am so proud of our beauty team, they bring us the very best in skincare, beauty and haircare and our beauty Pick Of The Day is SKINN, I am so excited to tell you that Dimitri James is flying over from the states to launch the new Skinn on Thursday night at 9pm.

Here’s to another 17 years!

Lots of love

Shadazzle comes back for Birthday


Our lovely guest presenter, Dawn Lowe, tells us why Shadazzle is the new essential that you will fall in love with…

I absolutely LOVE Shadazzle!

I was first given a pot to try in September 2015, being told, “try this, its amazing and you won’t want to use anything else once you’ve used this!” – I was sceptical at first, wondering how a pot of natural fragranced clay would change my mind on cleaning, but gave it a go anyway; and boy, am I pleased I did! Shadazzle is the BEST cleaning solution I have ever used! (And trust me, I’ve tried a few!)

I used to work as a cleaner and later as a marketing manager for office space and new house sales. Obviously I had to make sure everywhere was spotlessly clean at all times using many different cleaning fluids, which were all toxic.

Shadazzle has replaced all of those and actually cleans my house better too. It’s an amazing product, it does actually clean, polish and protect anything I clean, which means it cuts my cleaning time down, as it’s harder for dirt and dust to settle on my surfaces due to the protection Shadazzle leaves. Plus the added bonus is it’s child and pet friendly, which means once you’ve cleaned a surface or toy, they are safe to use immediatly and won’t harm your child or pet. This was especially important to me as I have sensitive skin and a little dog, so if it’s safe for pets and children, I knew my skin wouldn’t react to it either.

I love the fact Shadazzle is not only the most effective cleaning tool I’ve ever used, but also made from natural sources too; just a natural French clay and green soap. This means it’s safe for me, as an asthma sufferer, to use and safe to rinse away as it’s not damaging to the environment either. The light lemon fragrance leaves everything smelling clean and fresh too.

I recommend it to everyone I know and am always praising Shadazzle – I get so enthusiastic about it that my friends laugh and try it anyway, as they know I never recommend anything unless it really works. They’re glad they have and now they also constantly enthuse about Shadazzle too! Not only is it environmentally friendly, but also economical too, saving money and space in the home. I just tell people to try it and see, they’ll never go back to toxic cleaners again.

Make sure you tune in to Ideal World for our Birthday event from 9pm on Wednesday 29th March where we have a fabulous deal on three tubs of Shadazzle, 3 extra applicators + FREE P&P as part of our Birthday extravaganza!

Shaun is looking forward to Ideal World’s 17th Birthday!

News, Shaun's One To Watch

Shaun’s looking forward to Ideal World’s 17th Birthday, launching 5pm Wednesday 29th March…

“Well as many of you know this week is Ideal World’s 17th Birthday and we all couldn’t be more excited! I have been with the channel since the very beginning and have many fond memories of our various birthdays and the crazy fun times that we always have.

The things I love most about the birthday are definitely the amazing deals and obviously the free P&P, but also the laughs and great atmosphere that Birthday always brings. We usually try to have all the presenters in over the weekend which means that a lot of us get to pop into each other’s shows and have a bit of Birthday banter. We also love to show more of the crew during this events and take you a bit more behind-the-scenes which can be really insightful.

Make sure you keep your eye out for me on some great shows during Birthday including lots of gardening hours – I am also definitely looking forward to the brand new Vibrapower Slim 2 Pick Of The Day launching from 9pm on Saturday night! I’m not allowed to tell you too much about it but if you want to tone up for Summer and loose a few pounds then this new addition to the range features the latest vibration technology and design and is believed to be the most effective yet. It is also exclusive to Ideal World customers too!

I hope you can join us for our Birthday from 5pm Wednesday 29th March – I promise it will be very entertaining with some great new products. It’s great to still be here after all this time and a lot has changed since I began but the heart of Ideal World has always been the same – Family Friendship and Fun.

See you soon, Shaun xx

Shaun’s Spring Garden

Garden, Shaun's One To Watch

Hello again my gardening friends,

To be honest I haven’t done a lot in the garden since last time I posted, unfortunately on the few sunny days we have had I have either been at work or had already made plans to do other things so it hasn’t allowed me to do much outdoors.

My mum came to see me and stayed for a couple of days over last week and we had planned to do quite a lot of gardening but it really was too cold for her so we went out shopping for the day instead and then had a lovely evening in our village pub – the red wine there definitely warmed her up!

However, despite neglecting the garden a little over the past 10 days or so it really has started to come to life again. There are hundreds of narcissus bulbs now in flower which give the garden a true feeling of spring and my red crimson peach tree which featured on the gardening show over the weekend is now proudly coming out in the most beautiful blossom so hopefully it will bare loads of fruit. I really do love this time of year and it’s great to say goodbye to the winter and plan for the summer months and summer bedding.

I am actually in the process of choosing a new greenhouse as I want something quite big to work in with enough room to grow on hundreds of summer plug plants so I am looking forward to getting that sorted this week. I have also checked the weather for the next seven days and it looks pretty good so hopefully I will get a lot more done.

Don’t forget to tune in on Sunday from 11am to see me in our Gardening destination show for some fantastic deals on our Plant of the Month English Lavender Munstead 12x Jumbo Plugs and our Everbearer Strawberry Sweet Summer 20x Runners plus a mix of plant collections including Germanias!

Thanks again for reading

All the best,
Shaun x


Ps next time I post the clocks with have changed and the light nights will have begun- almost time to get the BBQ out!

Spruce up your garden with Fayon

Fayon's Plants
Spring has definitely sprung in my garden!

One thing I love about spring is being able to get in the garden and spruce it up.
Last week I finally got to planting February’s flower of the month, 100 heat treated freesia bulbs and 6 assorted rose plants! I was on Live on air with our resident gardening guest Angela  and I was thinking to myself, I really want these flowers for my garden too.

I learnt that if I plant the freesia’s now, they’ll bloom in time for my birthday in July, how lovely. Also I decided to buy the beautiful rose plants. Depending how much they grow by September I thought they could be involved in welcoming our guests at our wedding. Even if they are not ready by then, I’ll have years of nurturing them.

So, I went into my garden and used the compost I also bought from Ideal World, I found planters and pots which haven’t been used for ages and got planting! It was so relaxing and quiet, I’m really looking forward to spending more time sprucing up my garden.

I’ll keep you posted on their progress, I’ve always wanted to grow my own roses, so watch this space 😉

Check out Fayon’s video of her planting her lovely new Roses and Freesia over on her Ideal World facebook account at

Sprucing up for Spring….

After the success of our “Spruce up for Spring” event, I was inspired to start the spring clean on our family home. With all the travelling and work I do, it is something that I really cherish. Since decorating my lounge at the back end of last year, we have noticed how tired the rest of the house looks.

If you watch my vlog from Christmas day, you will see that my conservatory is in desperate need of a make over. I have now decided to make a move and the wheels are in motion! The curtains are on order and being a typical woman I can’t wait to accessorise.

As it’s that time of year, all the talk in my house is about decorating so we are also putting a lick of paint in a few rooms to spruce them up and give them a new lease of life. I can’t wait to get the Wagner back out and start painting.

Thinking about sprucing up your home this Spring? We have some fabulous products to aid painting rooms, decorating and sprucing up the garden.

Get excited for Spring Fashion Day!


We can’t contain our excitement, Fashion Day is back from 9pm Wednesday 15th March 2017 with 24 hours packed full of Spring fashion including Cushion Walk, Woodland Leather, Nicole and Lisa Riley‘s back with her Just Be You range! Not only that, but we’ve also got up to 25% off across all shows!Spring Fashion Day with up to 25% off!

We spoke to Ideal World presenters Hayley and Genevieve to find out what they’re looking forward to the most…

I absolutely LOVE Woodland Leather

“I’m so looking forward to Spring Fashion Day, we’ve got a day of my absolute favourites from our fabulous fashion team.

My number 1 on the day? Well that’s tricky as there’s a few….. but I’ve got to say ‘Woodland Leather.’ I think they are the most beautiful leather jackets that you will find. So stunning in their styles and at the same time the leather is so super soft, they’re just gorgeous to wear. Woodland Leather make me feel like a million dollars. Love them!

So another shopping day for me on Thursday then! Hope you’ll join us! I’ll be first in the queue at 7am for those Woodland Leather deals!

Hayley X”


Genevieve and Lisa RileyLisa Riley’s back!

“I am beyond excited to be presenting our two hour fashion special with the wonderful Lisa Riley. Lisa’s beautiful range Just Be You is stunning. Everything Lisa Riley designs is perfect for every shape and size and is designed to give confidence.

It’s hard to pick a favourite from the Just Be You range but here are just some of the highlights:


The Wrap Pocket dress

I have every colour and as a curvy woman I know it can be hard to find a dress that fits and flatters. As soon as I put this dress on I felt amazing, the tailoring is perfect, the wrap detail ( which stays in place) is great for both a larger bust and a smaller bust as it sweeps over the décolleté with a natural drape. The gentle waistband is draws in the waist without pulling it in giving Apple and pear shapes a flattering shape.

Fit and Flare Top

This sold out in minutes the last time and it’s no wonder. This top is going to be your best friend. Lisa has designed this to give a great shape and to drape beautifully over the tummy area.

The fit is at the slimmest part of the body giving the illusion of a thinner waist. The material is soft with stretch and feels lovely against the skin. This is a must have!


Oriental print trousers

These are gorgeous. Comfortable and stylish with no compromise. They look fab with the fit and flare top and the print design is so beautiful.

I want to write more as I love this range but there is just not enough room! I am a huge fan of Just Be You and Lisa Riley is a true inspiration.

I will also be bringing you the new collection from Nicole with spring/ summer colours and more beautiful designs from another best selling range. From flattering tops to waterfall jackets and (drumroll) the Tulip Hem dress. If you missed it when it sold out on Friday Fashion (10th March), it’s back this Thursday 16th March.

Do join us for the show! Lots of love,

Genevieve xx”

So with this and so much more, make sure you tune in from 9pm Wednesday 15th March for up to 25% off our Spring Fashion!

Mich Turner- Baking with the new Kmix for Ideal World

Kitchen, News

Mich Turner Summer CakesWe find out more about how Mich Turner MBE started baking and why she loves the Kenwood brand.

Having been baking since I was 4 years old when I used to watch Delia Smith on Saturday Morning Swap Shop,  I would stand on a chair in my Mother’s kitchen making pastry and cutting out shapes.  Even at that early age I would pretend I was describing what I was doing to my imaginary audience!

It was when it came to choosing my O Levels I decided to take Home Economics in addition to all the sciences as a preferred choice because I loved cooking, baking and at the same time wanted to understand the nutritional, physical, microbiological and chemical process of food.

I entered and won my first cookery competition at the age of 15 and then went on to study Biology, Chemistry and Home Economics at A Level with a view to go on to study Food Science and Nutrition at University.

Mich Turner

It was whilst I was studying my A Levels, My Home Economics teacher asked me if I would like to make her wedding cake.  I enrolled on a 4 day course with Mary Ford to learn the basics of Top Ornaments, Frills and Flowers and so the passion, skill and creativity was born.


I invested in my very first Kenwood at this time and used it for every cake, filling and frosting I made and baked.  This was quite a grown up investment for a 17 year old, but felt it was hugely important to invest in the key tools to be a professional.

I took my Kenwood with me to university and quickly became known as the go-to for baking on campus!  I’d make fruit cake with dried fruits, figs, apricots and dates and bake it with a layer of marzipan in the centre of the cake.  It was a staple of the 2nd year undergraduates at Surrey University!

I was sponsored during my 4 years at University by United Biscuits and spent my 3rd year in industry stationed at McVitie’s in Harlesden overseeing 750,000 Christmas Cakes for Marks and Spencer as well as Jaffa Cake and Biscuit.
After I graduated I worked as a Buyer at Harvey Nichols for Bakery and Patisserie.  It was in 1999 that I left Harvey Nichols to set up Little Venice Cake Company officially.  Since this time the company has baked over 10,000 bespoke cakes and it is so important to have the right tools for the job to ensure you get the very best out of each and every recipe.

I’ve made cakes for many celebrities and international royalty and was awarded an MBE in 2010 for my services to the Catering Industry.

Mich Turner CakesMy style is always involving – in my new book “Have Your Cake and Eat It” I feature Delicious and Nutritious recipes for healthier everyday baking.  The most essential element to have is patience to maximise every stage of the preparation before baking, filling or frosting a cake.  This is where the brand new Kmix comes in to its own – it’s sleek, powerful, easy to clean, versatile and robust to deal with the rigours of baking in my kitchen.

Don’t forget to tune in Saturday 18th March at 9pm to see me with the wonderful Kenwood kMix and my book “Have Your Cake and Eat It”.

Order your Kenwood Kmix during our Pick of the Day from 9pm Saturday 18th March until 9pm Sunday 19th March 2017 for just £429.99 and you’ll receive a FREE Thermoresist Blender! Visit today.
