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.
