Victoria Coren How I Would Like To Poke Her

By | October 25, 2010

Victoria CorenI’m a big fan of the BBC 4 program Supersizers where each week they nip back in the time machine to a bygone era and live the life for a week.  It was a very interesting show, I particularly liked the one based in 1970’s Britain.

The show has now finished its run and is to be superseded by the unpresidented comedy duo Sue Perkins and Giles Coren living the Good Life just like Tom and Barbara Good.  I believe it runs this Autum and is one to watch out for.  They both have their quirky sides and work so well together that I’m sure what ever they are in it’s bound to be a success.

Right back to my reason for mentioning this.  I watched the BBC4 program Only Connect, which may I add was as dull as dishwater I hope it’s not that boring every week and noticed the female presenter was called Victoria Coren.

It struck me that the surname Coren wasn’t that popular and I decided to check out if she was related to Giles.  To my surprise it turns out she’s his sister and a professional poker player, that’s her over on the left.

Which brings me back to what I was going to say.  I found myself quite distracted watching the show because as you can see Victoria is very well stacked.  I’m sure she must be a distraction at the poker table too.  I wonder if that is why she is so successful.  lol
