Coren Mitchell wowed crowds with her chocolate sea sponge and her winning personality in the 2016 series of The Great Sport Relief Bake Off - a worthy cause indeed (in 2014, Sport Relief raised £70,000,000 to help vulnerable people at home and overseas).

With a first class honours degree from Oxford, Coren Mitchell wrote her first column for The Telegraph at age 14 and has been a prolific writer ever since.

Career highlights

In addition to being a well-known poker commentator and presenter, Coren Mitchell plays a mean game. She was the first woman to win an event on the European Poker Tour and the first player (male or female) to do it twice. Other notable cashes include her 2011 second place International Federation of Poker prize of $100,000 - 10% of which she donated to Age UK.

"The last time I cried was this morning, at some pictures in the paper of a monkey that befriended a cat. I cry very easily. Pretty much anything can set me off. This is an excellent tactic at the poker table – it really unsettles people." (Express)
