Alex Phillips Profession
While reporting the 2007 National Assembly for Wales election, Phillips, a student journalist, produced a film about the UK Independence Party (UKIP). She claimed that this encounter had a significant role in her decision to subsequently join the party because she was drawn to the charisma of the then-leader Nigel Farage and agreed with the party’s stances on fracking, grammar school expansion, and Euroscepticism. Phillips was a local journalist for ITV and then BBC Wales before joining UKIP.
In addition to contributing to The Daily Telegraph, Phillips hosted a talkRADIO show twice a week. GB News co-hosted an afternoon show with Simon McCoy from June to August of 2021. In August 2021, McCoy was granted her own show, The Afternoon Agenda, after moving to the breakfast program. Following the cancellation of her show, she departed GB News in September 2022. TalkTV launched Alex’s Saturday afternoon program in July 2023.
After party leader Nigel Farage, she was the second candidate on the party’s list for the constituency. Prior to leaving the UK Independence Party (UKIP) in September 2016, Phillips served as head of media for the party. From June 2021 to September 2022, she presented GB News. Phillips became a member of Reform UK in February 2023.
For three years Phillips was the head of media for UKIP. She joined the Conservatives in September, a few weeks after Theresa May was elected leader, having left UKIP shortly after the 2016 Brexit referendum, in which she had voted to leave the European Union. She had left UKIP about the same time as Farage.
Phillips was chosen as the Brexit Party’s potential parliamentary candidate (PPC) for Southampton Itchen on August 2, 2019. On November 11, 2019, the Brexit Party declared that it would not contest the Conservative seats that were currently held by the incumbents. After being “disenfranchised” by her party, Phillips said the next day that she would not be participating in the general election.
The UK’s withdrawal from the EU in January 2020 brought an end to her tenure as an MEP. She became a policy adviser to party leader Richard Tice when she joined Reform UK, the Brexit Party’s successor, in February 2023.
