The Southampton born musical genius started his DJ career at his local station, Power FM, at the age of 16 after flooding the station with his own demo tapes. Because of this, the station offered him a five-hour slot from 1am-6am (aka ‘The Graveyard Shift!), six nights a week, which made him the youngest radio presenter in the UK at the time. He soon earned the popular afternoon drive-time slot.
Scott moved on to several other radio stations over the years including a two-year stint at GWR FM Bristol and even mid-morning slots on Piccadilly Key 103 and Heart 106.2. With his popularity increasing, his impressive broadcasts on a multitude of radio stations and his DJ sets at events in Hyde Park, Battersea Park and a special on stage appearance in the middle of Covent Garden soon drew the attention of BBC Radio 1.
Mills made the move to BBC Radio 1 in 1998 presenting the early morning slot between 4am and 7am. He later earned his own weekend show The Scott Mills Show as well as presenting the official chart show and occasionally, The Radio One Breakfast Show.
The Scott Mills Show became a staple of BBC Radio 1 and regularly plays from 1pm to 4Ppm during the week. Mills’ show features a lot of popular segments and games including Flirt Divert, Rate My Listener, Innuendo Bingo. The talented presenter is also famous for his catchphrase: “It’s only bley Friday”.
As of June 2018, Mills has been the host of the Official Chart Show cementing his place as a radio 1 legend.
Scott has also appeared on television in character and as himself on some of the British public’s favourite shows. His dramatic performances include appearances on River City and Casualty. As himself, Scott has been a contestant on Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Most Haunted, Mastermind, Hollyoaks, and Supermarket Sweep.
He also has extensive narrative work lending exciting narration to Robot Wars, Dating in the Dark, and The Pop Years.

Megan Chungh – Park Hotel, Newcastle
Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
