"You have the charisma of a damp flannel" - Janet Street-Porter on Selina Scott's failure to get on TV more.
Selina Scott has taken issue with Five's failure to use her to cover newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky's maternity leave. The likes of Joan Bakewell are sympathetic and happy to blow the ageist and sexist trumpet. For others, to see those who once benefited from being bright young things now complaining of falling out of favour is a bit rich, on a par with Frazer's King of the Woods complaining about job security. Janet Street-Porter lays it on with a trowel, telling Scott: "You're better off rearing your goats back in Yorkshire, love." Priceless.
