Quick Quote

Helen Skelton’s career started when she became one of the youngest breakfast presenters on BBC Radio Network at the age of 22, going on to present Newsround and Blue Peter for CBBC.

One of Helen’s longest standing roles was as a presenter for the flagship children’s series, Blue Peter.  The show developed Helen’s thirst for action and adventure, seeing her take on incredible challenges such as completing the Namibia Ultra Marathon (becoming the second woman to ever do so), kayaking over 2018 miles down the Amazon River for Sport Relief (breaking two Guinness World Records en-route), completing a 66 metre high wire walk between the towers of Battersea Power Station and in 2012, Helen travelled 500 miles across Antarctica to the South Pole becoming the fastest person to travel 100km by ski, breaking yet more World Records.

Helen has become a beloved face of the BBC having worked on two Olympics in London 2012 and Rio 2016 as well as presenting the World, Commonwealth and European swimming competitions for the channel including the 2017 World Aquatics Championships.

Helen’s love of the great outdoors has been put to good use, being part of the Countryfile presenting team since 2012.  In 2013 Helen was able to feed her love for travel by co-presenting BBC 1’s Holiday Hit Squad.  More recently, Helen presented The Instant Gardener, The School that Ripped up the Rulebook and has covered on several occasions the popular Daytime show for ITV ‘Lorraine’.

Charity work plays a big role in Helen’s life and as a Sports Relief and Comic Relief Ambassador Helen has travelled to Sierra Leone, Uganda and South Africa to help victims of abuse and terminally ill children. As well as highlighting the vital work of Save the Children and Children in Need, Helen went to India as part of Operation Smile helping young children born with cleft lips and palates have corrective surgery.

If that isn’t enough Helen has also become a successful author and has published the popular Children’s adventure book Amy Wild.
