Vick Hope kicked off the Women's Prize LIVE on Tuesday 13 June

Vick Hope kicked off the Women's Prize LIVE with a recording of her podcast ‘Bookshelfie: Women’s Prize for Fiction Podcast.’ The presenter, 33, from Newcastle, who is engaged to Calvin Harris, stunned in a geometric summer dress as she hosted the event on Tuesday 13 June in London. 

The Women's Prize for Fiction is one of the United Kingdom's most prestigious literary prizes. It is awarded each year to a female author of any nationality for the best original full-length novel written in English and published in the United Kingdom in the preceding year.

Vick shared snaps of the event to her Instagram story, which revealed the two guests on the live podcast episode. Vick spoke first with TV chef, presenter and author Nadiya Jamir Hussain MBE, who rose to fame after winning the sixth series of The Great British Bake Off in 2015. During the interview Nadiya talked to Vick about her favourite books by women, motherhood and navigating her career in a white male-dominated industry. 

This was followed by a second interview with presenter and former professional footballer Alex Scott whose book ‘How (not) To Be Strong’ made The Sunday Times Best Seller list in 2022. Vick also reposted pictures with her two guests with the caption: “Beautiful humans, books, women lifting women, sunshine – doesn’t really feel like work.”

Following the event, Vick advertised another podcast episode on Instagram, this time with Louise Minchin – the chair of judges for the Women’s Prize. In a post, Vick said: “Man, I love @louiseminchin 😍 A special live Bookshelfie episode with our fabulous @womensprize Chair of Judges Louise, recorded in front of a lovely audience at our sponsor @baileysofficial’s HQ.
