With over thirty years’ experience under his belt in broadcasting and live entertainment, it’s little wonder that Greg Scott has worked for and delighted a whole host of clients, producers and executives since first taking to the stage in 1986.
Let’s begin with his television work. Whilst Greg’s chief focus has been on entertainment and game shows, he is expertly able to present any genre. Greg has the rare ability to work with or without both autocue or talkback and has a wealth of experience with live and pre-recorded television.
Here’s his showreel (2m 50s):
Clients include: ITV, Endemol, Eurosport, Camelot, Fizz / RDF, QVC, High Street TV, Yell.com, Southeastern Railways, NetBet, Vroome.com and HUNDREDS of sweepers, commercials and bespoke drop-ins for Radio Stations, Comprod Companies and Presenters in the UK and abroad. Home studio with lightning fast turnaround available.
Voiceover Recommendations: I’ve used Greg as presenter of game show run throughs for the BBC and as daily v/o contributor for ITV’s Alan Titchmarsh Show. He has always delivered exactly what was required and was never less than utterly accommodating, professional and a pleasure to deal with. A real talent and loves doing well what he does so well.
Cillian De Buitlear, MD, Luminous Television.
We used Greg for a character voice that depended on excellent comic timing. He delivered a spot on performance to the delight of all concerned, within a couple of hours. Highly recommended.
Stuart Headlam, Camelot Group PLC.
Greg is rapidly becoming the voice of our station. Very fast turnaround and great quality. A distinctive voice that really helps to give A1 Radio a strong identity.
Ed Keeley, A1 Radio, Peterborough.
What a great, genuine, honest, reliable service with a very fast and prompt turnaround. Would highly recommend to any business, no matter how big or small. Have recommended Greg, on many occasions, to other radio stations.
Rob Hughes, Cannock Radio.
After two years of presenting on Coast and County Radio, (Chiefly as host of the Breakfast Show), broadcasting across North Yorkshire & Teeside on DAB and online, Greg has recently stepped down from the station in order to focus on other areas.
The continual early mornings were just too much for him.
But what other areas are we talking about?
At the end of 2018, after some time away, Greg returned to the world of television audience warm-ups, doing the business for Channel 5’s live, three-hour fundraising extravaganza, “Help The Animals At Christmas”, working with the delightful likes of Gaby Roslin, John Thomson, Susan Calman and Anton Du Beke – All of whom were (possibly) tremendously impressed with Greg’s work.
In recent months, demand for Greg’s voiceovers has been unprecedented. He has also added another gameshow to his impressive, ever-expanding catalogue of mega-pilots… However, his loyal fan-base firmly believes it is time for him to host more than just a pilot!
A few months ago, Greg was invited to Paris to record an English version of a hit French gameshow in order to sell the programme to English-speaking territories. Footage of this show is currently unavailable but watch this space… This was the eighth occasion on which Greg has undertaken such a project. They do love a bit of our Greggles across the channel!
Greg has also appeared in two of Channel 5’s perennially popular clip shows: ‘When TV Goes Horribly Wrong’ and ‘When Gameshows Go Horribly Wrong’. Greg spoke about other people’s slip-ups and also discussed a HUGE one of his own! (Scroll down to the ‘MISCELLANEOUS’ section for footage).
Greg’s aforementioned voiceovers have been for all sorts of people – From promos for production companies, to ads for Yell.com (for whom he writes the scripts, too)… He’s the voice of the major announcements for Southeastern Railways and is constantly called up to record sweepers, commercials and drop-ins for radio stations / presenters. In short, if it needs a mouth, then Greg is able to deliver a lightning-fast turnaround, despite being in high demand.
Finally for now – Though it is the thing to say, there are currently THREE mighty irons in the proverbial fire…
One mega-voiceover job for a huge company… A voiceover gig for a major television project… And something for which he’s signed an NDA – So can say no more about it at this stage. Vague, but hey – That’s the way things are…
All that said, he can always make time for other work… If YOU need the services of this multi-talented broadcaster, then…
An entire radio show for you to just
pop on and leave on.
On Fridays, Mrs Scott “co-hosts”…
From award ceremonies and product launches to corporate events or after-dinner speaking… In fact, any occasion which needs a front-man, Greg is available to help your event go without a hitch.
His qualities are seemingly endless but his warmth, charm, wit and empathy have captivated countless audiences. Greg is unflappable, professional, accommodating and authoritative; however, most of all, he is understanding and able to host/compere/MC in whichever style you require.
Most of Greg’s live work has been subject to copyright or is restricted for legal reasons; however, a short clip from the Young Enterprise Awards in London is available to view right here, along with a glowing reference from one of the event’s organisers.
“Being an MC can be tough work at the best of times, but it’s known to get particularly challenging when you have hundreds of excitable teenagers, doting parents, high-powered business-people (and the odd Cabinet minister) in the audience at the same time.
From the moment Greg came on stage to present the ceremony, he had the audience’s full attention, and his quick wit and humour certainly lightened the mood as competitors delivered presentations, and waited to see who won overall.
With something for everyone, he never put a foot wrong, and his continued audience interaction added charisma, laughter and warmth to make a great atmosphere a perfect one.
I would highly recommend Greg Scott as a MC for any event. Extremely talented, professional and likeable both onstage and off, his efforts for our flagship awards ceremony allowed his versatility and vast experience to shine through.”
Connor Sephton, Managing Director, Visualise Media Group
Since 1990, Greg has ‘warmed up’ audiences for a huge range of shows: Countdown, Stars In Their Eyes, The X Factor, Wogan, This Is Your Life, Through The Keyhole – the list goes on. Sadly, only one (low quality) recording exists of Mr S doing his thing (from Countdown in 1997) – And it’s available to view to the right.
Whether it be a small audience, as shown, or an entire arena, Greg will easily and expertly get your audience in the mood.
Still trawling through the site? Good! You’ve found some absolute GEMS here… All sorts of stuff from the varied career of the chubby, gap-toothed goon… Have a shufty.

WORDS OF RECOMMENDATION
“Greg Scott was the lead presenter of a talkbackTHAMES ITV show for me a few years ago, and was an extremely successful choice as our host. Viewers loved him and cast and crew were delighted to work with Greg who became an integral member of the team behind the scenes as well as in front of the camera.
He was warm, funny and personable and built a very dedicated fan base for the programme.”
Alex Mahon, CEO, Channel 4.
“Greg Scott – Fantastic with people and a truly excellent live host.”
Michael Leggo, former Head of Light Entertainment, BBC Television
“I first had the pleasure of working with Greg in 2005 at FremantleMedia, when I booked him to host Quizmania for ITV1 (after being a big fan of his work for some time).
Greg is simply one of the most talented and creative presenters working in British television today.
He exceeded my expectations and demonstrated an incredible talent at hosting live television and game shows.
He was reliable, professional and dependable.
It was an honour to work with Greg and I would highly recommend him for any production”.
Chuck Thomas, Former Head of Programming, FremantleMedia
“It is a source of constant amazement to me that Greg Scott is not yet a star of the highest magnitude.
His brain (roughly the size of an airship) knows the elusive “how to” of presenting both television and radio.
He is a consummate professional with a ready wit and is that most elusive of performers: a reliable, trusted and talented one.
You don’t often get those three bits together. His grasp of a format and his instinctive ability to bring out the best in everything is only a small part of the entire package – and that package (standing at around six feet high) is one of the best, nicest, personable, joyful packages I have ever known.
Do yourself and him a good deed. Book him at once!”
The dearly-departed Danny Greenstone, Fremantlemedia Executive Producer, International Entertainment
“Greg is a joy to work with; He’s enthusiastic, cheerful and as professional as you can get.”
Howard Huntridge, Senior Executive Producer, Worldwide Entertainment, FremantleMedia
“Over the years I have worked with the very best talent in the entertainment world on both sides of the Atlantic.
Greg is truly a hidden gem that would hold his own against the best of them.
His knowledge of the entertainment world is only matched by his passion and his professionalism”.
Jim Brown, Former Head of Entertainment, Scottish, Anglia, Yorkshire TV
”Working with Greg was a sheer delight – Professional, talented and all with unrelenting good-humoured energy”.
Nick Thorogood, Head of Factual, Entertainment & Formats, BBC Vision
“Greg did a brilliant job of our English speaking pilot; It’s a pity he’s not French!
A great show needs a great host and he’s one of them!”
The Late Francis Vacher, CEO, French TV
“The first time I saw Greg on TV, it immediately struck me that here was one of those exceptional performers who is genuinely able to make an instant connection with the viewer at home.
Amongst Telly Professionals this is known as ‘getting through the glass’ (Referring to a Camera Lens or, more commonly an Autocue).
Proficiency in this skill can ONLY be achieved via experience. GREG SCOTT is a master of this skill and, to his credit, makes it all look far too easy”.
Director / Producer, Royston Mayoh (The Kenny Everett Video Show, Opportunity Knocks, Catchphrase, The Tommy Cooper Show etc)
