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 family.
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.”
