She orders a cakey thing and tea. She is a writer, poker player and TV prsntr — oh, someone please make it stop — and our one hour together becomes two and then three as I am having such a gorgeous time and we laugh a lot and she is so fascinating. Motherhood — they have a daughter, Barbara, 4 — has blown her mind, even if it has taken its toll on humour at home.

But how is Ms Wnklmn at the missing vowel round? Has she got her eye in? I thought not. I spend a lot of money on food. There is no stinting there. No messing about. Straight to Waitrose. Did you have to speak quickly to get a word in edgeways when you were growing up? Is that what this is about, I ask. Yes, she says, the Corens were all very competitive in that way. And was being funny the main currency?

And I think that too. My brother has this too. Say what you like about Giles, but he is never boring as a person to be around or as a writer. I am more careful about doing it in print than him, but I do it socially though. And your mother?

Is she funny too? Her mother, Anne, now retired, was a consultant anaesthetist.

She was brought up in Cricklewood, in northwest London, yet was sent to a private all-girls school across town where, she says, she never fitted in. My physique was chubby and my personality was angular and I was a square and wore all the wrong things. She is, she says, not beautiful like her mother. Or Giles. She is dazzling. Giles does. Can you recall your worst humiliation at school? And one time, as a punishment after everyone else had left, she told me to move a bench on the sports field, and she sat on it, and I had to run around the field three times while she watched.

It was deeply humiliating, although, having done it, I smashed my lacrosse stick against the wall and never played again. I was just generally a bit of a twat. But then I started doing stand-up comedy and it was absolutely transformative. They only cared if you could write a funny joke or not and, broadly, I could. I just failed at the things that were important to the people I had met before now. She performed at late-night comedy clubs and also Edinburgh.

It was magical, this incredible universe with these dazzling people in it. Did your parents come to see you? It was the easy choice and doing comedy was the more difficult. Was Oxford where she achieved a first in English, as did her father such a mistake? I spent the first couple of years coming back to London because I was too nervous to go in a college bar. She had started playing poker at around 14, mostly because Giles, then 17, played with his friends in their kitchen.

Boys said what they thought to your face. None of this was flirtatious for me. I wanted to be them. She took it up seriously post-university as a substitute for the comedy world. It also happened late at night. It also happened in seedy dives.

There you go again, I tell her. Yet you are very, very glamorous, Victoria. Jeans also make me look like a postal delivery in a denim sack but I wear them anyway. She was the first woman to win the European Poker Tour in and the first two-time winner in I have won an enormous amount and did pay off my mortgage.

Is the pram in the hall the enemy of poker? Playing poker properly is very single-minded. That was very therapeutic for me. I could switch off everything in my brain apart from the game. Will you send me a photo of her plate before and after the meal?

Not playing at the top level has been tough. What are your anxieties? I worry that doors are left open. Christ, Victoria, where did you learn that the world is so unsafe? She first met David at a do in and adored him from the off. She started seeing someone else, but David did not, and remained keen, which she did not trust.

How did you feel when you read it? I just feel so apologetic. I am besotted with him. I am insanely in love with him. How could I have not wanted it? If I had my time over, I would go and find David very early in life. So I read that section in the book once and never listened to the audio book where he re it out as I think that would break me.

I try to make up for it by being very, very nice to him now. And was Barbara planned? I was fairly indifferent even up to the day before she was born. But from 30 seconds after she was born, it was immediately apparent there was absolutely no point or meaning to anything else.

She is named after one of the Banks children from Mary Poppinsa book Victoria loved as. Only Jane and Michael made it to the Hollywood film, but there was also Barbara. And did David agree immediately? No way. She is not.

Coren Mitchell used to write a weekly column in The Observerbut stopped when Barbara was born. I miss it, I tell her truthfully. I was always just trying to be entertaining yet people could be so horrible and angry. She hosts and produces the Radio 4 panel show Heresy and hosts the BBC Two quiz show Only Connectwhich is fiendishly difficult, although the mssng vwl round is fine, once you get your eye in. She loves doing it. We chat about this and that. We discover we both hate parties. And is David good around the house? I like doing all that. And he does put the bins out and gets up in the night if Barbara calls out, which is huge.

But, no. We part warmly. Tk tht! Subscription Notification. We have noticed that there is an issue with your subscription billing details. Please update your billing details here. Please update your billing information. The subscription details associated with this need to be updated.
