A passionate animal advocate, Scott was born in Brisbane, Australia to British parents. He graduated in 1997 from the University of Queensland Veterinary School and began his career working at the RSPCA clinic in Sydney before settling in London, where he set up a small animal practice.

Scott’s skill and charisma caught the eyes of producers and viewers when he received a chance call-out to attend a sick chicken on the first series of Big Brother. He began working regularly in the media, hosting Extinct for Meridian and regularly appearing on BBC Breakfast NewsGMTV, Blue Peter, The Paul O’Grady Show and CBBC. He appeared as an expert vet on BBC’s coverage of Crufts Dog Show and was the regular vet on This Morning for six years. Later he featured on Sky 1’s Pet Nation and became one of the lead presenters on children’s program, Who Let the Dogs Out and About? for CBBC.

Scott currently hosts the popular series Vet on the Hill which follows the day-to-day life at his veterinary clinic. The critically acclaimed first series aired on More 4 in spring 2016 and, after rating number one on the channel, is now back for its third series.
