John Barrowman selling his album on QVC-UK

If you're an easily persuaded housewife/husband with an expendable income and a working telephone line, you may have just had the greatest afternoon of your entire life. Earlier today, John Barrowman – star of Torchwood, Desperate Housewives and that weird one-off special where he sang a bunch of showtunes in a field – was a guest on QVC. And he was magnificent.

Without exaggeration, hosting QVC was the job John Barrowman was born to do. He has his own QVC membership card. He owns everything that QVC sells. He even turned up at the studio dressed in QVC clothes. It was a monumental hour – whether he was demonstrating the best way to use the Glass Master cleaning accessories, or raving about the high threadcount in the Northern Lights duvet sets, or sealing his CDs in a Lock & Lock tub and then submerging them in water like some kind of Tupperware-based David Blaine, John Barrowman was on fire.
