David Mitchell, Victoria Coren Announce Engagement... The Traditional Way

David Mitchell and Victoria Coren have today announced their engagement.

While births, marriages, deaths and anything happening to TOWIE stars all get first hearing in Twitter these days, it seems the media-friendly duo took a more traditional approach when it came to announcing their forthcoming nuptials.

An advertisement in today's Times newspaper simply told the reading public that:

"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."

The pair have mostly kept their relationship out of the public eye (a quick delve into our photo library revealed exactly zero pictures of the pair together), although Coren was unable to resist telling her Twitter followers today, "Thankyou... I'm very happy."

Mitchell co-presents 10 O'Clock Live (along with Charlie Brooker, also married to a TV presenter Konnie Huq), and is a regular on Have I Got News For You and other panel shows, while Only Connect presenter Coren is also a regular on the professional poker circuit.
