Ken Daly to feature on “Buy It Now for Christmas”

Ken Daly, CEO of innovative consumer products group JML, will feature on the second series of Buy It Now, “Buy It Now for Christmas”, airing Thursday 28th November at 8pm. Channel 4 has commissioned a Christmas-themed series, hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal. Four episodes will air every Thursday evening in the run-up to the holidays.

In the Buy It Now for Christmas series, inventors from across the UK will have 90 seconds to pitch to an audience of real shoppers and will receive live feedback on their products. If successful, the inventors will then present to a panel of expert retailers and will be in with a chance of landing a life-changing order.

Ken Daly and presenter Rylan Clark-Neal, alongside retail representatives Wendy Miranda, Customer Ambassador for Lakeland, and Fiona McDonnell, European Director for Amazon launchpad.

Ken Daly of JML represents one of the UK’s renowned retailers and will sit on a panel alongside representatives from Amazon Launchpad and Lakeland. JML is a household name in the UK, recognised for investing in innovation brands and products. As CEO since 2012, Ken has ensured that JML remains an inviting destination for inventors and entrepreneurs to showcase their innovations.

Commenting on his involvement in the show, Ken said :

“For the second year running, Buy It Now has been a launch pad for a number of British inventions. At JML, we’re always looking to invest in exciting new products. So, it has been very rewarding to be a part of the show again and meet innovators from all over the UK. Last series we bought into Hairshark, a clever new hairbrush. It was a great success for us and we have subsequently purchased hundreds of thousands of units, having introduced Hairshark into Boots and other major retailers nationwide. This time around we’ve sourced several more products through Buy It Now and are very excited about their potential.”

A fantastic range of Christmas gifts will feature, including eco-friendly toys and genius gadgets, just in time for the busiest shopping period of the year.
