Literary Agent: Eugenie Furniss

Scott was born in London and grew up in Hove, Sussex. He moved back to London at 25, studying for 3 years as an actor at Arts Educational Schools. After graduating and taking on various TV and theatre roles, Scott met his future wife, actress Dame Barbara Windsor, who he shared his life with her for 27 years, before she passed away in 2020.

In 2014, Barbara was given the devastating news that she had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, a day that would change both hers and Scott’s lives forever. Although initially kept private, Scott and Barbara went public with the news in 2018. Scott was offered support and advice, entering the 2019 London Marathon with a team of Barbara’s friends and ex-cast mates from Eastenders, known as Barbara’s Revolutionaries.

Alongside Alzheimer’s Research UK, Scott raised vital funds for Dementia Revolution. To date it is the record-breaking charity partner for the London Marathon, raising over £4 million. Scott also ran the 2021 and 2023 marathons this time as Babs Army, again raising more money for ARUK, which he is now an ambassador for.

In 2022 the government announced a national Dementia mission, that Scott had helped campaign for in his late wife’s name, “The Dame Barbara Windsor Dementia Mission”, and in 2024 Scott was announced as “People’s Champion” for the mission. He continues to campaign to help find a cure.
