Victoria Coren Mitchell is the Champion

I have been following Victoria's progress on Twitter this last week as she smashed her way through to the finals of the European Poker Tour championship.

I'm super pleased and not a little excited to say that she has won it.

The first person ever to win the title twice, winning 476,100 euros in the process and beating 556 men to boot.

Representing Britain sitting at the gambling tables with her little cardi on and her handbag at her side she wiped the floor with the opposition, in a very sweet non-aggressive but total concentrating sort of way.

I adore this woman, so bright, clever and NICE with it.

She's on the tellybox tonight presenting Only Connect, BBC4 at 8.30pm. I'll be watching her.


  1. Didn't know she had so many strings to her bow!
    Have to say we always watch her and can't help commenting on the tightness of her clothes, oh well, if you've got it...

    1. A famous P.G. Wodehouse quote springs to mind. She looked as if she had been poured into her clothes and forgotten to say "when".
