Jonathan Ross Is A Sick Poker Player

Jonathan Ross is one of England’s best  known television presenters and talk show hosts. Now, however, it looks like Ross is considering taking his talents to the poker tables after spending the day at home with a churning stomach.
Apparently, the 51 year-old was laid up in bed when he tweeted the following:
“Good evening. I have been in bed most of the day, sick. If you are a poker player, which is the best online site to play on? I am learning.”
Soon after, Ross got a reply back from his showbiz pal and top UK poker player Victoria Coren, who is currently ranked 12th overall on the ‘Women’s All Time Money List’ with $1,476,666 in winnings. Vicky wrote:
“I am OFFENDED you think only Twitter can help you here..! *tsk* Your first answer is PokerStars. Do email any further questions…x”
To which Ross replied:
“..many thanks will try a few hands then retire when i am the king of poker!!! The crown will be mine, oh yes…”
Not surprisingly, PokerStars themselves didn’t waste any time then trying to court their potential new celebrity recruit, tweeting:
“@wossy we might be bias, but we think you’ll get the best with us! Also, you can download our iPhone app. Do you have a chip set yet?”
To which Ross replied:
 
” no! What is a chip set! If its anything like the Chipping Norton set you can keep it…”
Here Jonathan Ross was referring to a group of affluent, influential people located in and around the Prime Minster’ Oxfordshire constituency, to which PokerStars replied:
“haha! It’s a lovely shiny box, filled with beautiful poker chips & playing cards so that you can play with friends at home!”
Not wanting to miss the opportunity, top UK pro Neil Channing then invited Jonathan Ross to join his site Black Belt Poker, describing it as a  “friendly community of players trying to improve.”
As of yet there have been no word as to how Ross got on, but it would be fun one day to see the highly entertaining presenter sitting down to a game with the likes of fellow motormouths Luke Schwartz, Tony G and Mike Matusow.
