Selina covers Moira on Radio 2

Presenter Selina Scott is returning to the BBC just months after criticising the organisation for ageism.

She'll cover Moira Stuart on the newsdesk during the Chris Evans Breakfast Show toward the end of this week, PA announced this weekend.

She told the news organisation: "Chris makes me laugh – he's a cheeky boy, that's why I'm doing his show, getting up at an ungodly hour before dawn. I haven't done that since I launched BBC Breakfast more than 25 years ago!"

Evans said: "Moira – she goes! Selina Scott, she comes! It's a fair swap, I have to admit. Like bringing Shearer on for Lineker. Moira goes Stateside, Selina arrives from her goat farm in Yorkshire. It's almost as if my Mum had written to Jim'll Fix It."

Earlier this year Selina challenged the BBC Trust to address what she called "blatant and sometimes malign sexism and ageism against women".
