Victoria Coren, you badass.

Victoria Coren Mitchell, the presenter of the super-difficult quiz show Only Connect, yesterday delivered a perfect response to people who keep asking her about what she is wearing.

"Ever since we moved here [BBC Two] from the rarefied world of BBC Four, every week during the show, people write to me on Twitter to ask what I'm wearing," Mitchell said.


Mitchell went to make an awesome comparison: "Now, I don't want to be all kneejerk offended and political, but I ask you, would you write to This Week and what Michael Portillo was wearing?" she asked.

"I know I have. In fact, I've written to offer to collect anything that Michael Portillo has worn...for charity. And the day that he replies, so will I. Goodbye."
