JANICE PHILLIPS QUITS IDEAL WORD FOR HOCHANDA
After 10 years, technology presenter Janice Phillips has left Ideal World:
Janice published a statement regarding her departure: "I wanted to let you all know I will no longer be working at Ideal World.
It has been a very difficult decision to make and I have given it a lot of thought and consideration.
I have worked with amazingly talented people over my time at Ideal World and over my 10 years I have made friends who will remain friends for life and gained many friends here on facebook. I would like to thank you all for your support.
Every time I turned up for work I would have a smile on my face and joy in my heart knowing I was going to do a job I loved and was very lucky to have.
I hope you gained knowledge from me and enjoyed the shows that I was a part of.
Leaving any job can be stressful but when you are leaving behind such great people its even harder.
I wish the company and all its employees the very best for the future."
Janice has not moved away from the world of Shopping Telly and has joined the Hochanda.
Janice said how she is feeling about the move: “I am really looking forward to being part of a team who are dedicated to the world of crafts, hobbies and arts and it will be a huge privilege to work alongside some of the most amazingly talented crafting experts in the business. Oh and don't forget to put the kettle on!”
Hochanda TV Operations Manager Adam Frisby said: “I have known Janice for many years and I am really excited she is joining our Presentation team at HOCHANDA. Janice is very experienced in the world of shopping TV and will bring a new dynamic on air as she begins her crafting journey, learning new skills and techniques. I’m sure everyone at home will join me in welcoming her to her new home.”

FITERA 2 IN 1 BOUNCE BIKE
Achieve your 2018 fitness goals and join Ideal World on Monday 8th January for the launch of their very own Fitera 2 in 1 Bounce Bike.
Ideal World are excited to launch their very own Fitera 2 in 1 Bounce Bike - the exercise bike with a difference! This clever bike is designed to increase your cardio whilst giving you the traditional feel of a bike workout. Unlike other products on the market, the Fitera 2 in 1 Bounce Bike uses a Swiss ball as its seat, providing you with an extremely unique combination of an exercise bike and gym ball, allowing you to cycle and bounce at the same time. Using the Swiss ball instead of a traditional seat keeps your abdominal muscles engaged at all times, allowing you to stay balanced and stable. To mix up your workouts even more, you can remove the Swiss ball and use it independently as you usually would at home or in the gym.
With its 8 resistance levels, LCD Display monitor and padded backrest and handles, the Fitera 2 in 1 Bounce Bike is perfect for both beginners and experts. To make it even better, the bike is foldable and fitted with wheels, making it easy and convenient to store.
