What Happened To Selina Scott And Where Is She Now?
Scott has established a "nature reserve" for threatened species on her 200-acre property, which is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty. She resides on a farm in North Yorkshire with her dogs, which include the late Kendi's son and angora goats.
After Greg Dyke made a sexuality-related joke about her in a television documentary that she called "shoddy" and "offensive," she swore she would never again work for the BBC.
According to The Times, 58-year-old Scott is not alone. She says, "I have friends and folks close by."
She runs a business using wool to make golf and hiking socks. So naturally, Selina Scott, a company she founded, sources ethical cashmere from the Gobi Desert in remote Mongolia.

Before selling to the general public, Scott lived among the nomads in their Ger and followed the entire production chain, from raising the Cashmere goats to creating the completed garment in Ulan Batar.
In 2016, she traveled to observe how the fiber is created and how the animals are nurtured.
In 1986, she left Breakfast Time and the BBC in disgrace. Scott was, after all, a valuable possession. She was quickly offered The Clothes Show as a replacement program to prevent additional embarrassment.
US networks were seeking her out in the meantime. But, according to Scott, she feels somewhat appreciative of how she was treated at the BBC because it provided her the chance to become well-known in the US.
