“ How to present "Only Connect" the Victoria Coren Way - 5 easy steps.

1. Every time there's one choice of category left roll out the hilarious "which one will you choose?" or "that's a fine choice" or "yes, I think you should choose that one".

2. Every time there's a mention of alcohol make sure you mention that you drink, in a blindingly unfunny, childish and cringe-worthy way - "Gin did you say? Oh I put that on my cornflakes."

3. Make it seem as if you know all the answers and are not just reading them off the cards in front of you, smugness is essential.

4. Use the word(s) "fiendish" or "fiendishly clever" as often as possible. (Note she has recently calmed down on this - obviously the producers flagged it up as very annoying.)

5. Over articulate in an unnecessarily formal, smarmy know-all whine as if you're talking to idiots- "The next round is the mmmuuuuussssiiiiccc round, you will be hhhhheeeaaaringgggg the ccccllluuueeeessss..." ” - MrPunish
