I wanted more, I wanted to hear more, I wanted to see more, and I was finding out that more cultures, more countries were bringing out some incredible, incredible items.

I wanted to be able to look at them and have them with me, have them in my collection. It's just grown from there piece by piece by piece.

Victoria now has of the largest collections of Harry Potter memorabilia in the UK.

Anything Harry Potter and I'm happy. A lot of items I bought when they first came out as well, so they were the lowest price, the recommended retail price, so obviously those items now have gone up in value"

One person she hasn't met so far is the books' author, JK Rowling...

I did write to her... I have written to her a few times, telling her, updating her on things I'm doing. I do get her assistant reply, but I have had her autograph sent to me in the post, which was amazing!

With more productions from the Potter universe on the horizon, Victoria's collection shows no signs of stopping...
