I had a sort of vertigo moment — what the hell do you talk about? When his hotelier parents moved to Oxford so that his father could become a polytechnic teacher, they sent him to a primary school, Napier House, which Mitchell disliked intensely.
Aged six, he was sick during lunch. The teachers saw it as an act of insolence and forced him to stay in his vomit-encrusted clothes all day. Worse, his parents deferred to them. They were young parents and they thought they should go along with what the experts were saying. These days people will shove burgers through the railings if the school so much as feeds their kids salad.

Cambridge accepted him, however, and he joined Footlights, the famous troupe of comedy actors, alongside Robert Webb and Olivia Colman, who went on to star with him in Peep Show. With Webb he formed a sketch-writing partnership.

The next day, a rival newspaper wrote: The problem was that she was too polite. Just have a cuddle. And David's comedic partner and Peep Show co-star Robert Webb acted as best man, following his friend into the church to no doubt give him some last minute words of encouragement before the couple said their 'I do's'.
David, 38, has been dating Victoria, 39, the daughter of late TV personality Alan Coren, since and popped the question in March of this year.

She was in a relationship with someone else at the time and turned down the comedian's advances. In his autobiography 'Back Story', David spoke out about the agony of not being with the love of his life for those years, and how it led him to midnight walks in the park and frequent visits to the pub.
