Have I Got News for You's Ian Hislop on time apart from wife Victoria 'Lives in Greece!'


Ian made his debut on TV in 1983 when he appeared on Loose Talk, then moving to BBC’s Have I Got News for You in 1990.

He is the only person to have appeared in every single episode, even discharging himself from hospital for filming when he had appendicitis.

The presenter and his wife met while they both studied at Oxford University.

Reminiscing of how they met, Victoria spoke of how Ian would charge people to borrow his work.

The author told The Telegraph last year: “My husband Ian and I met while I was reading English at Oxford University.

“He was in a different league to me as a student and used to charge me and my friends 50p to borrow his essays!

“I found Oxford very intense – you read so many books, but don’t go into much depth with any of them, which left me feeling a bit cold.”
