Episode notes

It’s Eurovision week and Nick and Angela are joined by superfan Scott Mills.

Scott fulfilled a childhood dream when he joined BBC Radio 1 in 1998 – and he's now the network's longest serving daytime presenter. He has won many awards for his work, including an ARIA for Best Music Entertainment Show in 2021. Scott made the move to BBC Radio 2 last year, taking over from Steve Wright in the afternoon. He has had memorable stints on Gogglebox with Sam Ryder, and on Strictly Come Dancing, where he was an instant hit with the audience for his amazing under-the-sea routine!

Scott Mills is presenting the Eurovision semi-finals alongside Rylan Clark on BBC 1 this year.

As our guest is a big fish fan, Angela prepares some delicious sea bass with a sauce vierge, new potatoes and asparagus. Nick pours the wine, a Bernard Fouquet Cuvée de Silex Vouvray, and the three reminisce on the halcyon days of Radio 1 and how Scott ended up living with David Hasselhoff.

Just so you know, our podcast might contain the occasional mild swear word or adult theme.
