Scott is the extremely popular host of Radio 1’s Scott Mills Show, broadcasting across the UK every afternoon between 4-7pm. Not limited to radio he is a regular presenter for the National Lottery on BBC One on Saturdays and Wednesdays where he hosts the live studio show and draws.
Scott’s most recent and hugely successful, TV credit is The Hoff: When Scott Came To Stay for Living TV.
Scott co-hosted ITV2’s 2008 coverage of the National TV Awards and he recently hosted Upstaged, a daily interactive competition looking for talent voted by the public online for BBC Three and is about to appear, as himself, on the infamous SKINS for Channel 4.
Scott has more than earned his stripes in the radio industry. He joined BBC Radio 1 in 1998 as the Early Breakfast host and was swiftly thrown in at the deep end when four days into his new job he was asked to cover for the Zoë Ball Breakfast Show. Since then Scott has become the first choice to deputise the Radio 1 Breakfast Show as well as the Radio 1 Official Chart Show. Scott’s versatility has led to him fronting many live events for Radio 1 including The Brit Awards and Radio 1’s Big Weekend. Scott has also picked up a Sony Gold and Bronze two years running in the Interactive Show Category.
Other TV credits under Scott’s belt are the ITV1 special, Batman Begins: Behind the Mask and co-presenting Cilla Live! for Living. Unsurprisingly Scott is often asked to appear on shows and his credits include Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend for ITV2, The Sunday Night Project for Channel 4, Britain’s Got More Talent for ITV2, Celebrity Scissor Hands for Children In Need, Celebrity Mastermind and Big Brothers Little Brother for Channel 4. Scott’s TV career started with him presenting Top of the Pops as well as its spin off programmes: Top of the Pops @ Play and TOTP Plus for BBC Two.
Scott was always very focused of becoming a Radio 1 DJ. At 16, after barraging his local radio station Power FM with demo tapes, Scott was given the chance to present a week of shows. He was promptly offered a five-hour slot six nights a week, making him the youngest ever radio presenter in the UK. Since then, Scott has never looked back. After a two-year stint at GWR FM in Bristol, Scott was snapped up by Key 103 in Manchester. Initially on the late night slot, Scott swiftly shifted to midmornings before moving to help launch Heart 106.2 in London and then onto BBC Radio 1.
When Scott’s not on air or screen he can be found DJ’ing at universities, nightclubs and hosting various corporate events up and down the country.
