Scott Mills currently hosts the drivetime slot from 4.00 to 7.00pm.

 

Scott hosted the 1999 New Year show for Radio 1 and their coverage of the Brits Awards 2000/02.

 

2001 saw Scott debut on the hugely popular Top of the Pops for BBC ONE, present T4's Planet Pop and also the pop desk for ITV2's Bedrock series.

 

In addition, Scott co-presented Top of the Pops@Play and For Your Ears Only on UK Play, as well as Top of the Pops Plus on BBC TWO. Most recently, Scott hosted TOTP's Prime.


Born in Southampton on 28 March 1974, Scott always dreamed 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 from 1.00 to 6.00am six nights a week, which made Scott the youngest radio presenter in the UK.

 

An offer for the Power FM drivetime show soon followed.


Since then, Scott has never looked back. After a two year stint at GWR FM in Bristol, Scott was snapped up by Piccadilly Key 103 in Manchester.

 

Initially on the late night slot, Scott swiftly shifted to the mid-morning slot. While there Scott conducted numerous high profile interviews and even secured an exclusive chat with Robbie Williams about his departure from Take That.


In 1995, Scott was asked to join the new London station Heart FM. Live events in Battersea Park, Hyde Park and a special on stage appearance in the middle of Covent Garden followed.


Other television credits for Scott include a regular Sunday night appearance on Sky News where Scott gave his opinion on the week's newest record releases, and presenting for the British Forces abroad and a six week music show for the Middle East.


In 1998 Scott was approached by the Radio 1 early breakfast show and carried on getting up early for Britain until he took over the weekend afternoon shows in January 2004.
