Having trained at the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong, Alex soon secured a position at the Criterion working for Marco Pierre White. She has also travelled the world working for the Rocco Forte Hotels luxury resorts.
In 2012, Alex hosted the popular BBC 2 show, The Fixer. She has also hosted shows abroad for her speciality, including Alex Polizzi’s Secret Italy (2015) and Spectacular Spain (2017) for Channel 5.
Away from television, Alex and her mother Olga, who is also a successful hotelier, run Endsleigh Cottage in Devon and Hotel Tresanton at St Mawes in Cornwall.
