So you are British and want to bring your Filipina fiancée to UK? Then she needs to apply for a fiancée settlement visa in the Phillipines to the British consulate and you act as her visa sponsor.
See Settlement - visa application guide, Supporting documents with a link for Settlement and Maintenance & Accommodation (MAA).
In the Philippines, the UK Border Agency use http://www.vfs-uk-ph.com/ as partner for visa applications.

Along the topic of visa advice, I'd like to travel with my filipina g.f. to Malaysia and perhaps Spain. She has a passport does she need a special visa? In another thread a "social visa" was mentioned, never heard of that...

Compounding the situation perhaps is that I'm 64 and she's 21. Sorry if that irritates anyone here but she is extremely mature and I'm an athlete (or ex athlete & still look the same as when I was a track champion, only I have grey hair). I always get a kick out of the "60 yr. old fat white guy" stereotype, but I digress.

I guess she could travel separately from me, but maybe going as a couple is better since I can show financial responsibility/guarantee so the issue of her not being able to come back is perhaps less?

She definitely needs a visa to visit Spain with a Phillipino passport. Don't know about Malaysia. Check on their website.

She needs a Schengen visa (not social) for Spain. She doesn't need a visa for Malaysia for a stay of up to 30 days. See Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Malaysia - Requirement for Foreigners
