This is the story of a man who took on the establishment – and it seemed he’d lost. But Norman Scott’s own perspective on his secret affair with politician Jeremy Thorpe in the 1970s has gained credence thanks to the TV drama, A Very English Scandal. Now Scott joins us to discuss his explosive memoir, An Accidental Icon, providing a jaw-dropping account of the illicit relationship, sensational trial and failed assassination attempt. He speaks to Viv Groskop today.
