About

Alex Brooker burst onto our TV screens having successfully auditioned for Channel 4, after seeing their advert for the Half Million Quid Talent Search to find new disabled talent for the 2012 Paralympics.

He joined Channel 4 fully in March 2012 and reported at the Paralympics Opening Ceremony, interviewing Boris Johnson and the Prime Minister in front of a TV audience of 11 million people. Following this, Alex featured on Channel 4's award-winning The Last Leg as a co-presenter alongside Adam Hills and Josh Widdicombe every night.

Following it's award-winning success, the show returned for further series in 2013, 2014 and 2015. The Last Leg recently won an RTS Award for Best Entertainment Show being commended for its wit, heart and boundary pushing.

In 2014, Alex Brooker joined Davina McCall co-hosting The Jump which saw twelve famous faces take on some of the most challenging and dangerous winter sports as they bid to become crowned champion of The Jump.

In 2013, Alex fronted his own documentary for Channel 4, Alex Brooker: My Perfect Body, in which he explored male body image, while trying to lose two stone and gain a six pack in two months. In order to test how far men are willing to go in search of the perfect body and challenge the male perception of perfection Alex became the guinea pig himself, trying out extreme fad diets and recording their effects. It pushed his body to the limit, including losing 10 lbs in seven days on the cayenne pepper diet.

Due to his sharp wit and antics, Alex Brooker has become a panel show favourite, appearing on 8 Out of 10 Cats, Fake Reaction and Never Mind The Buzzcocks. He also featured on screen on Channel 4 in 2011 as a reporter on That Paralympic Show and subsequently as an athletics reporter at the 2011 BT Paralympic World Cup and a football reporter at the 2012 BT Paralympic World Cup.

With his impressive fountain of knowledge, Alex Brooker acted as chief writer on the official guide to the 2012 Paralympics, which included comprehensive venue and sports guides, facts and figures, features on key athletes to look out for in London and a look back at great moments from past Paralympic Games.

Alex Brooker earned a BA/Hons Journalism degree from Liverpool John Moores. After university he worked part-time at the Liverpool Echo as a Junior sport writer before moving to the Press Association to become a sports journalist.
