Victoria Coren And Dr Alice Roberts?

Recommended Posts

Aside:

For someone who many perhaps wouldn't think of as having a strong accent, I find Alice Roberts' accent distracting. It's sort of semi-RP, or nearly-RP, especially noticeable in her archaeology programmes where she's often heard talking about 'looking for Cleese (clues)'.

From the title I thought they were having some sort of illicit tryst.

Disappointed now. :(

Woof.

I have a 'thing' for the female presenters of Coast.

Tempered by my irritation with the Jockanese girly man who walks like he has a broom handle up his jacksie.

It's his Timotei-ad style hair tossing that irritates me.

Their similarities in looks, voice and height are very well documented in the Internet sphere. I'm afraid this thread is several years too late.

Victoria Coren is 5' .Alice Roberts is 5'7" Seven inches may not seem like much but Mrs P reckons it is.

YES! I noticed that. It's the sort of accent that a lot of girls who come to London from the midlands develop when they try to speak a bit more 'proper'. I remember talking to one such on the phone about a competition and she kept talking about the 'jidges'. I eventually worked out she meant 'judges'!

Miss Coren is the real RP deal though! And from the pics looks like she has a far more impressive bustline. :D

I recall visiting Kenilworth Road to watch Luton play when I was at college. A fellow student from Northampton was amazed that there were "Ayzes by the grand" In Milton Keynes one day he remarked on the "Concrete kays".At my age they are both very respectable sex kittens,unlike that old boiler T.May.

Indeed. And when her late father Alan Coren, a very funny chap, was alive, I used to fantasise that I would get together with his daughter and then also be able go out with him to the pub to have a laugh over his Idi Amin book. A kind of double fantasy! Pathetic, I know....mind you the fact that she dated or is still dating David Mitchell suggests she may have the standard BBC-liberal-new labour outlook, which would rule out any long term relationship with me. Sorry, Victoria!
