Helen Skelton, 37, has revealed during this evening’s episode of Springtime on the Farm that she almost burst into tears when she got involved in the lambing at Cannon Hall Farm in South Yorkshire. The Countryfile presenter opened up on her emotional reaction to lambing season while filming the Channel 5 show.

While chatting to her co-stars Rob and David Nicholson, Helen said: “It really does put you through the wringer emotionally, doesn’t it?

“Because you don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Helen’s co-presenter Jules Hudson giggled, prompting her to continue: “No?

“Is that just me? I nearly cried before!”

Clarifying his opinion on the matter, Jules replied: “Yeah, it’s exhausting emotionally isn’t it?

“And of course physically you’re not getting all the rest you’d normally expect, it’s full on!”

Farmer David quipped in response: “I’m not getting my seven hours of sleep I normally get, it’s more like five!”

Rob then chimed: “It keeps you young Jules I love it, it really gets my blood pumping.”


It comes after Helen helped save the life of a newborn lamb during a very tricky labour on the Channel 5 programme.

As the star helped one ewe give birth, farmer Ruth had to rush in to rub the newborn animal’s body in an attempt to clear its airways.

Helen shared her worries about the lamb, saying: “Come on gorgeous.

“She’s been in there a while hasn’t she?”

Once the lamb was out of danger, Helen asked Ruth “how hard” the birth was, with the farmer explaining that the newborn’s tongue was stuck and swollen.

The lamb could then be seen being put with its mother and Helen shared her relief over the scary situation being resolved.

She emotionally told Ruth: “I wish I could hug you that was a moment.”

Helen, who is a former Blue Peter presenter, explained that she has always been in touch with nature.

Addressing her childhood, Helen said in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk: “I was brought up on a farm. 

“My dad was a dairy farmer but he works in animal reproduction now.

“My mum was on a farm when she was a kid. I lived in rural Cumbria until my mid-20s.

“It was only Newsround and Blue Peter that took me to London.”
