Harriet Scott (born 23 January 1972) is a British radio presenter with BBC London 94.9.

After studying History at Hull University, she became a production assistant for BBC Radio Humberside. A move to GWR followed, after which she worked at a number of other stations, including Viking FM, 2-Ten FM, and BRMB in Birmingham.

It was while at BRMB in 1997 that she began to move into television, becoming the travel presenter for ITV Central in the West Midlands. She went on to spend several years at Virgin Radio.

In 1998, she hit the headlines after a controversial affair with Mike Hollingsworth, a TV executive and at that time the husband of TV presenter Anne Diamond. In an article in the Daily Mail Scott later claimed that Hollingsworth had assaulted her. Hollingsworth later successfully sued the newspaper.[1]

In 2002, she joined Heart as a presenter. In February 2005 she began co-presenting Heart Breakfast on Heart London alongside Jamie Theakston. They have won Sony Radio Silver Award for Best Entertainment Show and Radio Presenters of the Year at the Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards.

On 7 January 2013 she began presenting Weekday Early Breakfast on BBC London 94.9 and continued until January 2014 when James Max took over. She has been co-presenting the Sunday Mid-morning show with Chris Rogers on the same station since January 2014, which is live 9am till 12pm.

She has been a cover presenter on the same station for Vanessa Feltz on her mid-morning radio show, Penny Smith on the Breakfast Show, Joanne Good on the afternoon show and Gaby Roslin's Sunday late afternoon entertainment show, most recently in July 2014.

Harriet made her debut on BBC Radio 2 on Saturday 1 March 2014 covering for Anneka Rice Saturday morning show and exactly a month later made her debut on BBC Three Counties Radio sitting in for Nick Coffer, 12pm till 3pm.[6]
