Keeping fit with Selina.

SELINA Scott, ex-newsreader who fronted the ground-breaking Breakfast Time with Frank Bough and also presented The Clothes Show, shares her spring wellbeing tips.

Selina, 57, says after working in Breakfast TV, with its weird working hours and lots of travelling abroad, she suffered insomnia for many years.

"It helped me realise how important it is to try to follow your body's natural rhythm, and be disciplined about regular rest, relaxation and exercise," she says.

Selina lives on a 200-acre farm in North Yorkshire, where she rears Angora goats and from their wool makes socks which she sells on the internet.

"In spring I am conscious that my body's probably a bit worn down by the winter, so I make sure I take a supplement. Luckily, having the farm and my two dogs, who can't exist without long walks, exercise is compulsory! I walk at least three miles a day."

The broadcaster, whose book about her Mallorcan holiday home, A Long Walk In The High Hills (Ebury) is out this summer, says getting out in the fresh air is the ideal tonic to lift her spirits and clear her head.

"Gazing out over the countryside, and seeing the animals puts things in perspective and makes most problems seem manageable."

Selina's socks for walking, sport and bedsocks, start from pounds 4.25 a pair, plus p&p. Call 07598 300 577/
