“Award-winning actor, writer, and comedian-presenter Sally Phillips is known for her roles in I’m Alan Partridge, Smack the Pony, Green Wing, and Miranda.

In 2016 she fronted the documentary A World Without Down’s Syndrome? (BBC2), exploring the ethical implications of our national screening policy. It won the Radio Times Readers Awards and Sanford St Martin awards for the Best single documentary and was shown around the world. The success of this has led to contributions to The Nuffield Council Report, invitations to speak to midwives, gynecologists, politicians, and philosophers globally and she continues to be a vocal disability advocate.

Recently, Sally appeared in ITV’s Vanity Fair, BBC’s The Tourist Trap, and presented a brand-new series, My Favourite.. for UKTV Gold. Sally made various film appearances in the films You, Me & Him, Jo Brand’s The More You Ignore Me, and Surviving Christmas with the Relatives and Blinded by the Light. Sally also reprised her role in the final series of VEEP, and appeared in Channel 4’s Year of the Rabbit.

Sally is a popular guest on QI and other British panel shows and in 2017, became one of BBC Radio 4’s Museum of Curiosity’s favourite curators and delighted the nation with her appearance on Taskmaster series 5. In 2019, Sally and Ronni Ancona founded the production company Captain Dolly, which is a subsidiary of Film Soho, and they have scripts in development for both TV and Film. Sally is currently writing The Wedding with Nisti Sterk and Nick Hornby for the Swedish Production company, Jarowski.
