Alex Partridge is one of the pioneers of social media content the way we know it today. At age 21 in 2010, while a student at Oxford Brookes University, he founded UNILAD, one of the most engaged with social news and entertainment Internet companies in the world with an astonishing following of over 50 million people around the globe.
In 2012, Alex founded LADBible which would also grew to become a social media juggernaut.

In 2017 Alex was involved in a major legal dispute over the ownership of UNILAD – he had left his editorial role in 2013 while remaining a shareholder – and won the case.
Now fully detached from both brands, Alex is a mental health advocate. He has been praised for his raw vulnerability; unashamedly opening up to audiences about how litigation turned him into an alcoholic.
After a three year legal tussle that ended in the high courts Alex was successful in winning his company back. However, the excessive drinking landed him in hospital twice and nearly cost him his life.
Alex suffers from ADHD and he explores just how this condition has aided and held back some of his dreams as he built his various organisations.
