The Australia-born vet got his big break on season one of Big Brother when he was called in to check on the chickens.

Speaking about his big break, Dr Miller described how he received a ‘cloak and dagger’ phone call out of the blue.

 “I was on Big Brother one and it was my first, sort of, in into British TV. I had a phone call, a very strange phone call, about some sick chickens, very cloak and dagger.

“They said ‘We’ve got this sick chicken can you come and take a look, do you know much about chickens ‘ and I was like sure, turned up and it was the Big Brother house.”

The Big Brother gig helped to launch a TV career for the vet who then went onto appear on The Paul O’Grady Show, Crufts and now This Morning. He can also be seen on the Bondi Vet channel and his book Puppy Parenting is available to buy from UK bookshelves.

So with all this media experience, it’s little wonder that Dr Scott has created his own Youtube show, Rescue Vet, which follows him on a mission to help a variety of animals in need.

Having been diagnosed with autism last year, Dr Scott who also has a son and a daughter with the condition is a huge advocate of the holistic role that animals can play for people with autism and generally as a source of consistency in our lives.

He said: Our cat has seen my wife and me get married, he’s seen all the kids be born, he’s seen all the trials and tribulations life can throw – and yet he’s still here to sit on my lap. It’s so intrinsic, having someone who has witnessed that period of time – someone so intimately related to you and your family, it’s impossible not to feel deeply for them.”
