SCOTT Mills has been heard breaking down in tears live on Radio 1 as he sobbed through his final show.
The DJ is waving goodbye to his position at the radio station after 24 years of hosting – and made an emotional goodbye today.
Scott, 48, could be heard addressing his fans and his co-stars in an emotional speech as he celebrated his final show.
"Let me see if I can get through this," the DJ could be heard saying as his voice began to waver, detailing his highs on the show.
He went on, as his voice cracked: "I, like millions of you, have grown up with Radio 1 – and whether you believe I'm 38 or 49, reports vary, it's been more than half my life sat here talking to you."
"Sorry," he could be heard saying as he took a break, breathing shakily before continuing again between sobs and sniffs.

"In that time I've publicly come out, I've met some of my best friends, I've had break ups and found love and lost it again sometimes and said goodbye and hello to family."
"Every low this show has got me though, and every high I've been lucky enough to celebrate has been here," Scott said as he continued to sob into the mic.
"Radio 1 has been a constant through all of this."
He went on to thank his listeners for sending in "kind messages" of what the show has meant to them over the years.

"We're here to be stupid and give everyone a laugh and give everyone a safe space. Radio 1 will continue to be that."
Scott concluded by thanking his co-star Chris Stark, his agent, producers and those he has worked alongside before heading back to the music as he struggled to speak.
