The most well-known work of VICTORIA Fritz is in journalism and television.

Who is the celebrity who frequently appears on BBC Breakfast, and why did she alter her name?

Who is Victoria Fritz?

Victoria Valentine, formerly Victoria Fritz, is a BBC business correspondent and presenter.

She graduated from Cambridge University in 2007 with a degree in law and economics. She was born in 1984.

2007 saw her graduate with an MBA from Cambridge Judge Business School.

She worked for Breaking Views, a financial commentary website that is now a part of Reuters, prior to joining the BBC in 2008.

She now serves as the host of BBC One, BBC News, and BBC World News’ morning international news programmes.

When did Victoria change her name?

Victoria now goes by Valentine instead of Fritz as her last name.

She declared that her separation from her husband was the cause of this.

Victoria tweeted why her name had changed to her mother’s maiden name: “Hello. You may notice a little change today. If you are wondering why, here are a few words:

“The reasons for the breakdown of my marriage are private. I have two wonderful young children to consider. Protecting their wellbeing and right to a private life will always be my priorities.

“Yet, however private I wish to keep my private life, there is an aspect of it that will always remain as much in public hands as it is in my own. And that is my name.”

She has worked as a business correspondent for the BBC since 2008, covering the financial crisis in London and New York.

She then became the BBC’s first female transport correspondent and launched the Business Live show.

For programmes like Today on BBC Radio 4, The Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2, The Six O’Clock News, and The Ten O’Clock News, she explored the effects of transportation on commerce, politics, and culture around the world.

When Victoria learned she was expecting, the couple was busy remodelling a home they had just purchased.

A short while after reading the business news live on the air, the TV presenter discovered that her waters had ruptured.

Sally Nugent, a colleague presenter, stayed by Victoria’s side for the birth of her son after learning that Victoria’s husband was snarled up in traffic on the highway.

A BBC spokesperson confirmed: “When Sally heard that she’d gone into labour she offered to be there until Victoria’s husband got there. But her husband never arrived so she found herself at the birth.”

Victoria gave birth to a baby named William in 2016 after going into labour five weeks early than anticipated.

A few years later, their daughter, the couple’s second child, was born.
