She can also speak fluently in French, Spanish and Portuguese.

She actually knew Roman Kemp way before Capital Breakfast...
The pair didn't meet during Capital Breakfast. In fact, Roman Kemp and Vick Hope actually met when they co-hosted ITV2's 2Awesome, where they'd chat to the likes of The Vamps and Pixie Lott.
They also worked together on Red Bull TV's Can You Make It?

Ms Hope is also a big advocate for human rights...
From an early age - 10 years old, in fact - Vick was asked to be the face of Childline. And even though her mother rejected the offer, that didn't stop Vick, who has gone on to become an Amnesty International ambassador, as well as a human rights activist, having worked with them since she was 16.
Recently, Vick hosted the stage at the Women's March, which she claims is her proudest moment to date.
