Helen Skelton will be bringing her "wild" side to 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The TV presenter is among the famous faces who will be taking to the dance floor this year and her 'Summer on the Farm' co-star Martin Hughes-Games has now revealed Helen might be BBC bosses a headache as she has a habit of saying "naughty things".

He told The Sun: "She’s a safe pair of hands but has to be reined in a bit because she has a tendency to be a bit wild. We have someone from Channel 5 compliance, on set in South Yorkshire, who tells her that she mustn’t say too many naughty things.

"Although of course there’s always the chance that she might."

Helen, 39, previously competed on 'Strictly' in the 2014 Christmas special and news of her participation was confirmed on host Claudia Winkleman's BBC Radio 2 show on Saturday (13.08.22).

Helen revealed she only agreed to take part in the programme "the other day". The former 'Blue Peter' host said: "I did the Christmas one the other year. The hair is the best, the make-up is incredible, the costumes are incredible. Who gets to go to work and be made to look a bit like Beyonce and have a fun time?

"I thought this is madness not to do it, of course I should do it, it will be so much fun."

Helen completes a lineup that features Will Mellor, Kym Marsh, Richie Anderson, Kaye Adams, Jayde Adams, Ellie Simmonds, Tyler West, Matt Goss, Ellie Taylor, Molly Rainford, Tony Adams, Fleur East, Hamza Yassin and James Bye.

'Strictly' returns to TV in the autumn.
