Vicky Coren talks UKIPT Nottingham - and about her wedding to David Mitchell
SHE'S a self-confessed poker obsessive who became the first woman to win a European Poker Tour title, scooping a cool £500,000.
But now Vicky Coren has spoken about the new love of her life, fiancé David Mitchell - who she admits knows NOTHING about the game.
''One poker obsessive in a relationship is enough,'' said the 39 year old.
''David may have played in a celebrity event in the past, but he does not really play now.''
TV and radio presenter Vicky and Peep Show star David announced their surprise engagement last month.
The EPT London poker champion said she was overwhelmed at the reaction of fans, particularly her many thousands of Twitter followers.
''I was very touched that people were so nice about it,'' said Vicky, who is also author of the top-selling poker memoir, For Richer, For Poorer.
''We haven't set a date yet, but we are going to get married - we're not going to be one of those couples who wait 10 years.''
Vicky is on another hot date this week - at the UKIPT in Nottingham, where poker players are competing for a guaranteed prizepool of £1 million.
The six-day event is being held at the award-winning Dusk Till Dawn and boasts a series of No Limit competitions, including a £700 + £70 Main Event.
Team Pokerstars pro Vicky said: ''Dusk Till Dawn is the best poker venue in the UK, because it is run by poker players for poker players.
''I love the UKIPT tour because it is a grass roots tour, where people from an area can join players from around the country and even abroad to compete for top prizes.
''It is a wonderful event and Nottingham will be a fantastic tournament.''
