Helen Skelton made a triumphant return to TV on Monday with Summer On The Farm and viewers were lining up to offer their support as she talked about "muddling through a storm you don't really want to be in".

Former Blue Peter presenter Skelton, 38, split from her husband of eight years Richie Myler in April when he left her just four months after their third child was born.

As Skelton took shelter from the rain under a tree in the episode, she said: "There's something really grounding about embracing the elements and doing your day anyway.

"It's a good lesson for life, you know, life throws things at you that you don't want to have to deal with.

"Sometimes you find yourselves in a storm that you don't really want to be in and if you can find a way to muddle through, you'll come out the other side.

"The sun will always come out in the end."
