Vick Hope Age

Vick was born Victoria Nwayawu Nwosu-Hope on September 25th, 1989.

She was born in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in England.

Her mother is Nigerian and her father English.

Vick is the oldest child in her family with three younger brothers.

Vick Hope Career

Vick attended the University of Cambridge and studied modern languages.

In an interview with the Evening Standard Vick explained how she studied independently outside of school to get her place at Cambridge.

Now, Vick is the host and voiceover for Shipwrecked: Battle of the Islands.

The 29-year-old is a TV and radio presenter, famous for her role on Capital FM and as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing 2018.

Vick said in an interview with Channel 4: “I’m chuffed to be voicing the all new series of Shipwrecked. I was such a fan of the show back in the day on T4, and my friends and I would be so invested in all the tribal twists and turns on Shark and Tiger Island, so it’s a real honour to get to have the first sneak peek at winter’s hottest reality show. There are some amazing characters, epic bombshells and lovely waves of nostalgia ahead.”

Does Vick Hope Have a Boyfriend?

Vick doesn’t look to currently be dating anyone.

She used to date 31-year-old Plebs actor Tom Rosenthal but the pair broke up in 2017.

Tom is best known for playing the role of Marcus Gallo in Plebs and Johnny Goodman in Friday Night Dinner.
