Alex Lovell Career
Lovell was born in Gravesend, Kent, grew up in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. She studied at Rose Bruford College drama school in London.
Lovell success story began when she presented Playhouse Disney with Dave Benson Phillips on the Disney Channel and the new Playhouse Disney Channel, between September 1999 and August 2006. She was also a cast member of Fun Song Factory, broadcast for pre-school children on GMTV, again with Benson Phillips. Lovell undertook a series of voice-over assignments and got her terrestrial break playing the voice of the Whybird in the Playdays live tour around Britain. She, later on, helped launch digital satellite auction channel bid-up.tv, before being poached by rival channel Auction World.tv. Lovell appeared in one episode of BBC One sitcom My Dad’s the Prime Minister, as ‘Saskia,’ a disc jockey.
Lovell’s next move was presenting the live lunchtime quiz show BrainTeaser on Five. Initially, she was a co-presenter, but as from 2006 until the last show on 7th March 2007, she was the sole presenter except for occasional breaks. BrainTeaser was produced in Bristol, and when Channel 4 started production of its daily show Deal or No Deal in the same studios, Lovell was asked to revive her role as a voice-over artist for the show, which she continued to do until the viewers’ competition was dropped in October 2007.
Lovell joined the BBC Points West local news presentation team in July 2005, and is the lead female presenter, when presenting Points West.

Alex Lovell rape-threat stalker jailed
A Man (Gordon Hawthorn) who has been stalking Lovel for more than six years by sending letters which became more threatening between January 2016 and March 2018, after he threatened to rape her was sentenced and jailed on 3rd January 2018.
Gordon Hawthorn, 69, of Street, Somerset, sent the threats to Points West’s Alex Lovell over six years. Lovell started suffering panic attacks as a result of the threats, which included claims he was watching her closely enough “to smell her hair.”
At Bristol Crown Court the judge, Martin Picton, said Hawthorn left Lovell “frightened and miserable.”
Lovell initially started receiving Hawthorn’s cards at the BBC’s regional centre on Whiteladies Road, Bristol, in 2012.
Hawthorn – who was jailed for two and a half years – had previously pleaded guilty at the city’s magistrates’ court to one count of stalking involving serious alarm or distress.
