The UK Team PokerStars Pro and television presenter Vicky Coren has become engaged to Peep Show actor David Mitchell. Unlike many celebrities Mitchell did not make the announcement via Twitter but instead he took a more traditional approach and placed an advertisement in the Birth, marriages and Deaths column of The Times newspaper!
The simple advert read: MR D.J.S. MITCHELL AND MISS V.E. COREN. The engagement is announced between David, son of Mr and Mrs Ian Mitchell, of Oxford, and Victoria, daughter of Dr Anne Coren and the late Mr Alan Coren, of London."
Mitchell, an award winning comedian, and Coren have been partners for a couple of years now though they have kept out of the public eye despite speculation they were a couple. Now there is no denying it and we are sure the entire poker community wishes Mitchell and Coren all the best with their engagement and their future.
When Coren is not hosting the popular TV show Only Connect, she can be found playing poker on PokerStars, at The Vic or around the world in major tournaments. To date, Coren has close to $1,500,000 in live tournament winnings, the bulk of which came from her outright victory in the 2006 EPT London Main Event that netted her a cool £500,000.
As one would expect when such a popular figure announces such good news Coren has been inundated with message from well wishers on her Twitter account. She has replied to them by saying simply:
