MY LIFE IN LIPPY AND LEOPARD PRINT
I’m British so have that stiff upper lip thing going on, but whenever Victoria Coren comes on the telly I elbow Andy in the side and go, ‘Turn it up, Victoria’s on, go on turn it up, turn it up go on, go on’.
I love Victoria Coren, she’s so funny and nice and clever. Also:
* She has the prettiest hair, ever.
* She’s a curvy lady, which I champion for Hello! Online.
* David Mitchell waited for her.
On her brainiac BBC4 quiz show Only Connect, she fixes the contestants with a mocking look and says, ‘you’ve been practising on the Only Connect website, haven’t you?’. The nerds blush and deny it, but Victoria and I know.
* She plays poker against the boys and wins pots of money:
* Victoria was ace on QI.
I’d say I’ve got one of those ‘girl crush’things on her. But – and there’s always a but – I’m a 44 year old woman so really it’s a woman crush and that sounds wrong. I’m not a lesbian and just want to be her friend.
People who really should know better say, ‘why don’t you apply to take part in Only Connect so you could meet her?’, I get excited for a bit then stop myself and realise no, that’s called stalking.
I get distressed enough (in a good way) when she sends a tweet on Twitter…
