Helen Skelton

Helen Skelton knows how to get the most from a Life Outdoors. Growing up on a farm in Cumbria, she has crafted a work and play lifestyle which has seen her take on some awe-inspiring outdoor challenges as well as presenting and appearing in some of Britain’s most-loved outdoor TV programmes. Although Helen doesn’t see herself as an adventurer, it’s clear that she enjoys tackling extreme challenges and pushing her mind and body to the max across the globe. Her presenting roles over the years, most notably her six years at Blue Peter, have seen her take on some truly awesome adventures. She’s the first woman to kayak the entire length of the Amazon, she’s completed the gruelling 78-mile Namibia Ultra Marathon, and she’s the first person to travel to the South Pole on a bicycle.
