Joe Lycett talks to MP Jess Phillips about her ability to win headlines and her passion for television programmes that represents the whole of the UK, and more.

It’s been a big year for Labour MP Jess Phillips, who won Celebrity Bake Off in March, and was all over the news in July after taking her 10-year-old son to do his homework on the front step of 10 Downing Street, to highlight the problems caused by an increasing number of schools closing early. Comedian and presenter Joe Lycett talks to his good friend Jess about her ability to win headlines and her passion for television programmes that represents the whole of the UK. She also tells him why she thinks there isn’t enough political satire on TV anymore and the big difference she thinks female political correspondents including Laura Kuenssberg are making. Described as a heroine by JK Rowling after publication of her first book ‘Everywoman’, Jess’s passion for improving the world and empowering women is infectious as is her self-depreciating wit.

    I really enjoyed watching this. Whatever your political persuasion, Joe Lycett was the perfect interviewer. No interruption, no show boating and trying to steal the attention from the guest. Very refreshing and intelligent approach.

    "I cant remember who is who in politics anymore". Which makes you wonder why Labour lost the election so badly. But I'm sure Jess will blame Corbyn whilst she hangs out with her "Asian friends" in Birmingham eating lentils and korma. What a fucking fraud

    I absolutely love Jess Phillips, honest, hardworking, real, passionate, what you see is what you get. I wish we had more politicians like Jess. If only Labour had listened to her. I hope for the future Labour adopts her positive attitude.
