Victoria Coren Mitchell - Writer, Broadcaster & Poker Player

October Fests

Saturday, 1 October 2011

Never mind London Fashion Week, it’s London Poker Week! Victoria’s favourite of the year. The home-town London EPT has kicked off, and Victoria will begin the Main Event on Saturday, October 1st. [Update: she didn’t win it.]

  Once that has wound down, Victoria’s got a week off poker and then she’ll be off to Italy for the EPT in San Remo at the end of the month.

  Meanwhile, Victoria’s doing the commentary - alongside exciting newcomer to the voiceover box, James Akenhead - for the new series of Late Night Poker (now Coral Late Night Poker) which begins on Monday October 3rd on Channel 4, soon after midnight, and continues late on Monday nights for ten weeks.

  With her non-gambling hat on, Victoria will be a guest on Have I Got News For You on Friday October 14th and Would I Lie To You? on Friday October 21st, both BBC One. Only Connect continues on Monday nights at 8.30pm on BBC Four - entering the quarter finals stage on October 10th. So if you thought it was difficult already…

  To ice that tricky cake, the Only Connect app goes on sale this month! If you’re a connecting wall obsessive and the free ones on the website aren’t enough for you, 20 walls can be delivered to your iPhone or iPad for £1.49, from here.

  Also, Victoria’s new bi-monthly column in GQ magazine has its second outing in the November issue (in shops October): this month it’s about Manning Up.
