DJ Scott coming to Lakeside
7:30am Sunday 2nd September 2012 in News
RADIO 1 DJ Scott Mills will be signing copies of his autobiography at Lakeside Shopping Centre on Thursday, September 27.
Mills is one of the country’s most popular DJs, broadcasting to around six million listeners between 1pm and 4pm every afternoon.
His new book, Love You Bye, reveals all the funny jobs he had to do during his rise to fame, including working on local radio shows.
A spokesman for Scott said: “Whether relating a particularly embarrassing encounter with one of the many celebrities his job requires him to meet, trying not to spit water all over the mic during a game of 'innuendo bingo', or finding out a weird fact about yet another of his listeners, he's a daily companion to over 6 million listeners, 600,000 of whom also follow his every word on Twitter.
“His life has by no means been an easy ride - aside from the sometimes humiliating (but often funny) jobs he had to do while learning the ropes as a local radio DJ, he's suffered from crippling anxiety attacks, alcohol and weight issues and a great deal more over the years.
“But despite the profile he now has, he remains an ordinary bloke at heart who still can't quite believe how he got to where he is now.
“Love You Bye will provide his legions of fans with a look at the man behind the voice they know so well.”
As well as working at Radio 1 for the last 14 years, Scott has also been a regular face on tv, hosting the National Lottery and the Eurovision song contest, and presenting documentaries on subjects including homosexuality in Uganda with BBC 3’s World’s Worst Place to be Gay, and the weird and wonderful world of David Hasselhoff with Living TV’s When Scott Came to Stay.
Scott will be signing copies of his book at Lakeside Shopping Centre’s WH Smith store from 6pm.
