Vic­to­ria Coren Mitchell

TV Times - - Friday -

Only Con­nect,

Ham­mer­smith-born Vic­to­ria, 44, is a world­class poker player and was the first woman to win an event on the Euro­pean Poker Tour.

When asked why she hosts Only Con­nect, Vic­to­ria said, ‘I love that the peo­ple who come on it don’t want to be rock stars. They are prop­erly clever and they wouldn’t dream of ap­pear­ing in fake tan and pros­thetic nails, al­though I ob­vi­ously in­sist on them!”

In 2012, Vic­to­ria mar­ried Peep Show star David Mitchell. Her food critic brother Giles gave her away, and her brides­maids in­cluded Strictly pre­sen­ter Clau­dia Win­kle­man.
