Models Direct were over the moon to see Britain’s most successful model family the Phillips in The Daily Mail, Mirror and Express this week.
The Welsh family of six – Jason (41) Michelle (30) Louis (15) Luca (5) Cobie (3) and 10-month-old Evie Philips – have had numerous starring roles in a variety of commercials and adverts. They have worked for Cheltenham & Gloucester Building Society, Audi, Cadbury, Mercedes, Zirtek Hayfever Tablets, Thomson, Disney and many other top brand companies over the years.
This model family the Phillips are so popular that they often model up to eight times a month together – earning up to £6,000 an assignment. Not only do they get paid well and have fun they even get to travel to exotic places such as Barbados, Majorca, the Maldives and Austria.
Mr Phillips started modelling at the age of 16 and later decided to get his family involved, ‘It’s the easiest job in the world, the money’s fantastic, I travel to some of the most beautiful places on earth with my family and I enjoy every part of it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. All my children enjoy doing it together. We’re like a Welsh version of the Waltons.’
So why are they the most sought-after modelling family? It’s all down to the chemistry… industry experts believe the chemistry of a real family is much more appealing and makes for better adverts than a group of strangers brought together for the day.
