‘Ugly’ Phil O’Neil marries iHeart radio producer

Radio legend Phil O’Neil, (pictured) has married.

Known as Ugly Phil, the 58-year-old has tied the knot with iHeartRadio producer Samantha Clarke, sharing a photo on Instagram with their marriage certificate and cat.

O’Neil was previously married to his former co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, in 1995, before they split in 1999.

Jackie O went on to marry Lee Henderson in 2003.

In 2019, British-born Phil returned to the UK to present the breakfast show on Fix Radio. He had been working with Southern Cross Austereo where he hosted Triple M Afternoons and My Generation.

In late 2021 the veteran presenter landed the morning gig at ARN’s WSFM 101.7 replacing  Mike Hammond, who departed the station in October after hosting the mornings show for two years.

Are we really just looping in Ugly Phil as “that guy that was married to Jackie O once”

The dude’s an industry legend. Deserves better than that.

Is this article about Phil or Jackie O?

Do better Radio Today.

That marriage to Jackie O was more than 20 years ago. Move on. We have!

Phil is an icon in this industry and deserves so much more than “Jackie O’s former husband”.

    Good point. We have amended the story.

Am I reading the Daily Mail? Jackie O shouldn’t be mentioned in the first sentence. Phil is his own iconic personality.

Congratulations Phil and Samantha. You both deserve all the happiness there is.

People can try and appear to be sanctimonious in the comments section but that is very insincere because the vast majority of people think the most significant thing about Ugly Phil is that he is Jackie O’s ex husband
